South Downs Trek
Sunday 18 August 2019
The South Downs Trek is the exhilarating one-day walk offering 22 miles 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 and Birling Gap to refill your bottles and provide free tea, coffee and light refreshments.
Includes rail fare to and from Eastbourne and all walkers will be awarded with a commemorative medal and technical t-shirt.
Join our free, friendly and fun training programme designed to give you the fitness and stamina you will need to achieve your goal. We have a selection of training walks organised for Sundays and Wednesday evenings.
For more information about these training walks, please contact Kim Roderick.
We also recommend that you take part in the Y2Y North Downs Trek taking place on Sunday 24 March – make it a Downs Double! The Y2Y has the choice of a 26.2 or 13.1 mile trek across the North Downs.
The entry fee purely covers the cost of the event. Although we have not specified a target, we are hoping you will feel inspired by our work in the community and what we are trying to achieve and consider fundraising for us. One of our main aims is to be inclusive and one example of this is our Exercise Referral programme which enables people with a chronic health condition, those who are rehabilitating from an injury, illness or have a disability to engage in physical activity to help them lead a healthier, independent and more active lifestyle.
This year we are hoping to raise in excess of £7,000 from both the Y2Y and South Downs Trek to purchase a Recumbent Stepper, a top of the range, wheelchair friendly step through design to enable adults with disabilities to exercise effectively and safely helping to improve everyday activities, which most of us take for granted. Thanks to its superb design, the Stepper provides total body exercise thanks to arm to leg movement and features a custom seat shape for full back support and therapy assist pedals offer 360-degree access.
Every penny you raise will go directly toward purchasing this vital piece of equipment for adults with disabilities and suffering from chronic illness or recovering from major surgery.
