South Coast Challenge

Take on the UK’s most scenic Ultra Challenge along the coastal path and South Downs Way. Starting in Eastbourne, the trek takes in stunning views as you travel either 100km, 50km or 25km across Sussex to the finish line in Arundel on August Bank Holiday weekend.


South Coast ChallengeJoin our Team

Back for 2019, this Ultra Challenge takes in some of England’s finest scenery. An Eastbourne start, up the infamous Beachy Head, on through the Seven Sisters Country Park and along the South Downs Way. Brighton, Devils Dyke, stunning views, ups and downs, sunset and sunrise all lie ahead before the Cathedral spire of historic Arundel comes into view and the welcome finish line beyond.

Most of the 2,000 challengers will be walking at their own pace, many will jog parts, and some will run the whole course. However you take it on, you’ll be supported through day & night and rewarded with an overwhelming sense of achievement. Push yourself in 2019 – get in shape – join us for a real challenge and an unforgettable bank holiday weekend! Full Challenge, Half Challenge and Quarter Challenge options available.

Your Support

Your support really does make a world of difference for families in Sussex. There are potentially 1,000 children in East and West Sussex with a life-shortening or life-threatening illness, and yet we are currently only caring for around 300 of these. Join our Chestnut Tree House South Coast Challenge team and help raise even more money in 2018 and help us to care for every life-limited child in Sussex.
