Event summary
Here are the distances available for Sussex Downs Half Marathon
Route information
The Sussex Downs Half Marathon starts out from Plumpton Racecourse, right at the foot of the South Downs National Park. This course has unspoilt views, fast, long-ranging trails, and challenging climbs, making it the perfect event for all types of runners.
The Sussex Downs Hald Marathon course starts with a mostly flat 3.5k section amongst trees before a climb up to the South Downs Way. Your hard work getting up this hill will be well worth it when you see the spectacular views over the Sussex countryside, the Seven Sisters Country Park, and far-reaching sea views.
From there, you'll be taken along sturdy trails towards Brighton before heading back up South Downs Way. Finally, you'll enjoy a downhill stint with vast views before a flat 3k to the finish line.
