Support Us : The South Coast Challenge


Over the August bank holiday weekend this fantastic Challenge takes on some of England’s finest scenery as a Walk, Jog or Run. An Eastbourne start, up the infamous Beachy Head, through the Seven Sisters Country Park and along the South Downs Way. A Brighton midpoint, Devils Dyke, stunning views, sunset & sunrise all lie ahead before the Cathedral spire of historic Arundel comes into view and a welcome finish line after 100km (quarter and half distance options also available) and an amazing personal journey.

Most of the 2,000 challengers will be walking at their own pace, many will jog parts, and some will run the whole course. You can sign up as an individual or as a team, and there’s half & quarter distance options also. However you take it on, you’ll be supported through day & night and rewarded with an overwhelming sense of achievement.

With some training and determination anyone can conquer The South Coast. So why not get in shape – and join a real challenge in 2018 for the Down’s Syndrome Association.
