The Devil's Challenge is a 97 mile ultra marathon that takes place over 3 days along South Downs Way. The course begins in Winchester, Hampshire on the first day; passes through South Downs National Park, pre-historic sites, and small villages; and finishes in Eastbourne in East Sussex on the third day. Challenging enough in itself, this race is perfect for those who want to experience an incredibly scenic ultra marathon, or it is a great training event for those who are participating in other multi-stage events.
The "Chiltern 50Km Challenge" is run on National Trails and Footpaths and has some excellent markings in the form of signposts or post discs. However, since it's made up of sections of these trails and paths the route will be comprehensively marked with signs and confidence tape. In addition, you will be given a map, which is designed to help on any tricky sections, to provide information on any route changes and to indicate where the checkpoints are. The event is supported by a course manager to maintain event safety and to manage any serious incidents. A fully qualified medical crew are in attendance, to give first aid and to manage any serious medical problems in cooperation with the emergency services.
