About the event

2,000 adventurers of all experience levels and ages will take on a classic capital to coast route, testing their grit over the bank holiday weekend.

You can choose to walk, jog or run your choice of distance, from the full 100km, three-quarter 75km, or a half or quarter options. There's a challenge for everyone.

A Richmond start in Old Deer Park - then the North Downs and wonderful Surrey and Sussex countryside to halfway at Turners Hill. The full challenge heads up and over the South Downs before the welcome sight of the Brighton coastline comes into view.

You can walk, jog or run as an individual or a team, with full support and hospitality all the way.

Trekking across Iceland for mental health - Maria's story

"We knew that the challenge was going to be difficult. 58km covering volcanic rock, miles upon miles of thick snow, ice cold river crossings with steep ascents and descents that pack a punch on the knees. But we've supported each other through mental health problems; we can support each other through anything."
