Now in its third year, UK Running Events are delighted to announce the 2023 edition of The South Downs off-road Half Marathon starting from Goodwood!
Beginning at the Goodwood Racecourse, this ultimate trail run takes place in the South Downs National Park taking in spectacular views across the South Downs, and distant views of the North Downs, Chichester Harbour and the Isle of Wight.
The quiet scenic routes and stunning natural surroundings will overload your senses, making it one of the South’s must-do trail runs. This well-crafted off-road route will guide you from Goodwood along forest tracks, skirting Levin Down. The middle section of the route takes you along the iconic South Downs Way before the rewarding downhill run back toward East Dean. From here there is one final push up the hill to the finish at Goodwood. The trails include a mixture of forest fire roads, bridleways and single-track tree-lined trails, to keep you motivated and interested throughout.
With three route distances to choose from, there is a distance to cater for all abilities.
The event is timed and will have water station(s) on route to keep you hydrated. Available categories are 21k / 18.1k / 11.9k
