The challenge

  • 26.2mile marathon trek along the stunning South Downs
  • Trek with ‘Iron Fran’ himself – Saints legend, endurance athlete and hardcore fundraiser Francis Benali, MBE
  • Stunning views from the high point of Firle Beacon, finish on top of Beachy Head
  • Test your endurance with the undulating terrain of the Seven Sisters Country Park
  • Help raise vital funds for Saints Foundation's work in the community

This incredible coastal trek starts just outside Brighton and takes you on 26.2 miles of testing, undulating terrain before finishing at Beachy Head.

You will cross Firle Beacon, for stunning views of the coast, before heading down to the Seven Sisters and finishing the trek along this most incredible stretch of cliff tops before finishing at Beachy Head.

Join Franny Benali ‘On Tour’ on this marathon-length trek along the beautiful South Downs Way. You and a small group of fellow fundraisers will walk alongside Franny from dawn to dusk, a unique way to get to know a true legend of our club.

What better way to kick off 2023 by channelling the Iron Fran mindset and making a real difference to people’s lives in Southampton.

There are limited numbers so don’t miss out on this exclusive experience to join Benali On Tour as he takes on the South Downs Way Challenge!
