The course celebrates some of the country’s finest scenery, with views sweeping North over the Weald and stretching South out to sea, the history of England and her spectacular wildlife.
It can be completed non-stop, over two days including camping or participants can choose to do a single day on the Saturday or Sunday with or without camping. It is designed for everyone from walkers to elite runners and is the ideal ultra-distance challenge for those looking to take their first step beyond a marathon or who just love a challenge outdoors.
There is a signed route and everyone is given a map book with information about the route, views and landmarks. The pit stops roughly every five to six miles have toilets, food, drinks and medical support and foot health experts will help tend and dress sore feet. The overnight base camp offers a hot dinner and hearty breakfast, two man tents, steaming hot showers, stretching classes, free massages and physio guides, local beer bars and light entertainment for everyone. The start and finish are easily accessible by train and there will be transport available from the station to the start and the finish back to the start as well as bag transport for all participants.
