ROUTE & TERRAIN
The 50km course starts at Christs Hospital School and immediately joins the Downs Link until 22kms. From 25km -37km you will be following the South Downs Way. After leaving the South Downs the approach to the finish is on pavements & promenade.The first half of the route is predominantly flat, in fact slightly downhill overall; the second half is on rolling downs therefore hilly/undulating, before finishing along the flat seafront promenade. The terrain should be mainly firm underfoot, but can also be wet & slippery in places if we have a lot of rain beforehand.


CHECKPOINTS/FEEDSTATIONS
There are four checkpoints/feedstations on the course. It is mandatory to visit each checkpoint even if you don't require food/water.
