The race is on mixed terrain which is mostly off-road, taking in a lap of the school grounds before heading off to Southwater along the Downs Link, through the Country Park, and back along the Downs Link. In dry conditions this can be a fast course, being mainly flat and also an ideal first-time race.
Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd men and ladies, as well as age category awards for over 40, over 50 and over 60 men and women and over 70 men. To encourage more younger runners the entry age has been lowered to 15, and additional prizes will be awarded to the first under 18 male and female runners. All finishers will receive a medal.
Each year a donation is made to a charity from the proceeds of the race. The 2020 charity is Mind in Brighton and Hove
