The London 2 Brighton Challenge

You'll begin your challenge in Richmond next to the Thames, then on to the North Downs and the fantastic Surrey & Sussex countryside. Reach the halfway point at Turners Hill with 100 km to go, venturing on to the South Downs and finishing along Brighton's scenic coast.

The Full 100km event can be done as a continuous challenge or spaced over 2 days, with the option to camp at your halfway point. If you're not ready to take on 100km, challenge yourself to 25km, 44km or 56km routes on this great outdoors adventure.
