London to Brighton Challenge 2017

Event Details 

Dates: Saturday 27th May - Sunday 28th May 2017 

Main Start Location: Old Deer Park, Richmond, Surrey, United Kingdom 

Over the May Bank Holiday 3,000 adventurers will take on 100km from Capital to Coast in the 6th annual London to Brighton Challenge. Most will be walking at a pace that suits them, quite a few will jog parts, and some will run the whole course. It's tough but achievable; a test of stamina and determination, and an unforgettable journey of self discovery, with full support all the way.  

Starting in Richmond it’s along the Thames, up the North Downs, some wonderful Sussex countryside before the South Downs and then the coast comes into view with the welcome home straight of Brighton Racecourse where the finish line awaits, and a fantastic sense of achievement.  

Whether you're a walker and new to endurance events, or a marathon runner looking to up the distance the journey will be amazing there’s half challenge and quarter challenge options, and you can join as an individual or a team. So why not take on the challenge in 2017 for Action Against Hunger.
