Further Information

The Eastbourne course is very flat and covers a wide variety of terrain. The majority of the route is on grass sports fields. There is a short section on tarmac and a kilometer on woodland paths which can be uneven with tree routes. With these factors in mind we suggest the Eastbourne course to be suitable for wheelchair users with assistance.
