Route information
Distance: 21k / 18.1k / 11.9k
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.
With each of the 3 distances including a mixture of forest roads, bridleways and single track tree-lined trails, you'll stay captivated by your surroundings throughout your run.
Children are welcome to take part in the 11.9k and have a significantly discounted price but must run with a paying adult.
The event also offers canicross races for the all three distances, where each entrant can bring along a dog to run with them.
