South Coast Challenge

Date: 31 August- 1 September 2019
Location: Eastbourne to Arundel
Distance: 100km

A beautiful 100km walk along the South Coast with a 1,600 metre ascent this challenge is certainly not for the faint-hearted. Starting in Eastbourne and taking in Beachy Head, Seven Sisters, South Downs Way and Brighton before heading to a finish in Arundel, this walk is certainly one you won’t forget!

You can even take on the challenge across 2 days, camping at the half way point. Taking place on the August Bank Holiday you’ll also know you have Monday to recover before heading back to work!
