Challenge Day!

Pit yourself against one of the toughest challenges that the UK has to offer, as you take on a 42km 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 the small village of Rottingdean from here you will begin to make your way to Eastbourne along the South Downs Way.

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 by heading east towards the tough climb up on to the top of Firle Beacon. From this vantage point you will have fantastic views of the surrounding area before descending down to the village of Alfrinston. From here you follow the Cuckmere river to the sea before your final section takes you along the cliff tops of the Severn 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.
