The route is designed to offer participants every opportunity to enjoy the magnificent scenery of this area, and entrants remain mainly on or in sight of the South Downs throughout the run. There are many places along the route providing refreshments and facilities, and many points at which to simply pull off the road and enjoy the view. On arrival at Eastbourne, the Western Lawns at the finish make a superb picnic site, with the attraction of a 1940s style big band playing all afternoon. The large cafeteria adjoining the lawns is open all day. The event finishes at 5 p.m. and the lawns are to be vacated by 6 p.m.
The entry fee covers all organising costs, magnetic rally plaque, route instructions, programmes, finishers’ plaques, entertainment etc.
We hope you’ll plan to take part in the South Downs Run in 2015, provisionally scheduled for 6 September.
Full details and an entry form will be published on this site when arrangements are finalised.
