Back for the bank holiday weekend, the iconic London 2 Brighton trek. Walk, jog or run capital to the coast, as an individual or as a team, with full support and hospitality all the way so you can push yourself further! It’s a Richmond start by the Thames, and a 60% off-road route which takes in the North Downs, wonderful Surrey & Sussex countryside, a steep climb over the South Downs with the coastline then coming into view – and a welcome finish line at Brighton Racecourse. With the full 100km Challenge, a 2-day daylight option with camping at halfway, and half & quarter distance options, there’s a challenge for everyone! Your entry includes a range of free food & drink at regular rest stops, and support from medics, marshals and massage teams. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, a t-shirt, and a special medal to celebrate your achievement. As we are an ‘Official Charity Partner’ - sign up & commit to fundraising for us and you’ll get 25% OFF the standard charity place registration fee!

Raystede aims to give animals a better life through rehoming, rehabilitation and sanctuary, and give people the support and knowledge they need to treat animals with care and respect. We are not government funded so your donations and fundraising is vital to the work we do.
