A South-watering Experience! The South Downs Trek is the exhilarating one day marathon walk offering 26.2miles of stunning views and beautiful countryside starting from Lewes and finishing in the seaside town of Eastbourne.

Our team of experienced walkers will encourage and guide you along the way and our support crew will be available at Alfriston to refill your bottles and provide free tea, coffee and light refreshments. Rail fare to and from Eastbourne will be included in the £25 entry fee and all walkers will be awarded a commemorative medal and technical t-shirt.

Money raised from all our events this year will help us create a brand new, disability sports, fitness and wellbeing facility, designed to inspire and support people of all ages and ability to be more active and healthy.

This will be a centre of excellence for families, those suffering from learning and physical disabilities, people with emotional and mental health issues, the elderly and people recovering from chronic illness. The purpose-built, fully accessible facility will offer a wide programme of disability sports, rehabilitation and preventative health activities, delivered by specialist, friendly staff and inspiring volunteers. Our aim is to create a wonderful culture of inclusivity, where everyone feels welcome and is empowered to create healthy, active and fulfilling lives.
