The South Downs National Park is a superb backdrop for an unforgettable South coast adventure. Starting at Eastbourne, you’ll set off up Beachy Head and follow the magnificent Seven Sisters chalk cliff line along the South Downs Way. A Brighton mid-point, Devil’s Dyke, stunning views, sunset, and sunrise all lie ahead before the cathedral spire of historic Arundel comes into view – a welcome finish after 100km and an amazing personal journey achieved. Sign up for the South Coast Challenge for Pilgrims and achieve something really special!

Choosing to fundraise for Pilgrims Hospices with your walk, jog or run along the South Coast will support us in continuing to care for over 2,500 people each year who are facing an incurable illness across east Kent.


What’s included?

  • Hot meals, drinks and snacks en-route
  • Pace walkers, marshals, medics and massage
  • Fully signed route
  • Shuttle buses & transfers
  • Finisher’s medal, t-shirt and a glass of bubbly
  • Optional training walks & event app

Fundraising options:

Once you’ve decided on your challenge distance, there are three ways to fund your entry:

  • Self-funding – you pay the full cost of the event place with no minimum fundraising commitment – just raise as much as you can!
  • Charity sponsorship – you pay a reduced registration fee and, providing you reach the fundraising goal, Pilgrims will cover the cost of your event place
  • Mixed funding – you pay half of the event place cost yourself and, providing you reach the fundraising goal, Pilgrims will pay the balance of the event place cost

Please note: when taking part in Ultra Challenge events you are asked to pledge to raise a sponsorship target when registering for ‘charity sponsorship’ and ‘mixed funding’ options. The sponsorship target depends on the distance of your challenge – full challenge, half challenge or quarter challenge.
