South Downs Way 50 route

The race route travels from Hillbarn Rec on public footpaths to join the South Downs Way just before Chanctonbury Ring. The route then follows the SDW all the way to Eastbourne, only deviating from the standard course at the points listed on the course page. Of particular note is the junction at Alfriston where runners will take the bridleway path over Windover Hill to Jevington and on to Eastbourne, as opposed to the Seven Sisters footpath route.
