About this event

Over 2,000 adventurers of all experience levels and ages will take on a classic capital-to-coast route, testing their grit over the Bank Holiday weekend. Most will walk, but many will jog or run the full, and with half and quarter-distance options offered there's a challenge for everyone.

A Richmond start in the Old Deer Park - then the North Downs and wonderful Surrey and Sussex countryside to halfway at Turners Hill.

The full challenge heads up and over the South Downs before the welcome sight of the Brighton coastline comes into view.
