London 2 Brighton Ultra @ Blackheath to Madeira Drive
Sep 2 @ 6:00 am – 4:00 pm
London 2 Brighton Ultra @ Blackheath to Madeira Drive | England | United Kingdom

Organised by Sussex Trail Events who are very passionate about  this race as Jay and Danny did the L2B extreme trail race and Chris ran the last ever road race. We believe the L2B has a long history in British running scene and deserves to be continued as a race. If you would like to know more please read our article in issue 4 of Ultra running magazine.

The Race will start at Blackheath London ( the start of the London Marathon)  and follows roads, footpaths and bridleways through Kent, Surrey and Sussex. You will cross both the North Downs Way and South Downs way and finish in Madiera  Drive, Brighton the historic finish of the London 2 Brighton Road race and dip your feet in the sea.

This is a self navigating race but we do mark the course with L2B stickers on Footpath signs, it is a tough route with only 5 aid stations so you must be a competent trail runner with navigational skills and be able to be self sufficient between aid stations they are roughly 9-10 miles apart..

60 miles – if you dont get lost

30% Road/70% Trail

14 hour cut off

5 fully laden Aid stations

The New Forest Marathon is a popular race that inspires a lot of interest. Having been cancelled in 2014, the race has made a welcome return under new management.

The race starts and finishes at New Park Farm, Brockenhurst. Runners follow a multi-terrain route taking them through the New Forest, including much stunning scenery along the way.

The finish line is outside The Old Barn Inn. Most runners pop inside after recovering for a celebratory beer!

Cancer Research Tough 10 @ Box Hill

Cancer Research Tough 10 @ Box Hill | England | United Kingdom

Good luck to Simon Thistlethwaite doing this 10k for Cancer research – but this isn’t any 10k as it covers 323m with a 205m elevation

Set in the picturesque surroundings of the Surrey Hills this 10k course will be a serious hill-climb challenge to the summits of Box Hill.

With steep gradients and a mixture of grass, woodland tracks and paved paths the route will mount challenging inclines but with the ultimate reward of unrivalled panoramic views across the surrounding countryside and towards the south coast.

Well known for one of the most challenging hill climbs on the 2012 Olympic cycling route, this Toughest course will put participants to the ultimate test.

Time: Meet in the car park at 7.30 to run
Eligibility: (a) anyone who wants a run

A festive hat is often applauded!

Meet in the car park ready to run, (festive accoutrements optional), for a run of 4 or 5 miles to work up an appetite, and run back to Crossbush for their all you can eat Breakfast. Tea/Coffee, cereal, yoghurts, croissants, toast and a full cooked breakfast, eating as much as you like. The cost has gone up slightly from last year – now £9.50, but if you consider how much a mug of Costa coffee costs, then you only need to have 3 cups of coffee to get your monies worth! As we will have a block booking, may I suggest that everyone pays £10 so that we can give a small tip? There is a cheaper, healthier (?) continental option at £7.50.
