Pit yourself against one of the toughest challenges that the UK has to offer, as you take on a 21.1km trek along a remote section of the South Downs National Trail. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the South Downs National Park you will put mind and body through the ultimate test, as you tackle this serious endurance challenge. Walking this route is a serious undertaking.
Your challenge will start from Beachy Head and from here you will begin to make your way in-land along the South Downs Way before looping back across the Seven Sisters to finish back at Beachy Head.
During the challenge, you will be led by our experienced support leaders who will be there to motivate and support you along the way.
The route follows the South Downs way and begins up on the cliffs above Eastbourne from where you will have fantastic views of the surrounding area before heading in-land and heading west. You will reach the Cuckmere river and follow this out to the sea before your final section takes you along the cliff tops of the Seven Sisters to the finish.
Not for the faint-hearted, this is a tough endurance challenge and should not be undertaken lightly, however, the sense of achievement is tremendous. The terrain is extremely varied and anyone undertaking this challenge should be comfortable walking similar distances.
