Organiser's Description

The artist John Constable declared this spot ‘the grandest view in the world’. Vast views over the Sussex Weald ensure Devil’s Dyke is a popular place to walk, rest and play.

This is also a fantastic place for us trail runners to get together as a group and enjoy the finest parts that Sussex has to offer.

18 miles plus change of glorious and beautiful trails to enjoy. This run has its fair share of ups and downs and is ideal for marathon training, mileage building towards ultra distances or simply a fantastic run in its own right.

This is not a race, the aim of this event is to run together, encourage each other and enjoy the day.

Course Details

This course is hilly to say the least, with around 3700ft of ascent over 18 miles of trails this is not for the faint hearted. :-)

Happy to send a course map or GPX before the day.
