According to the event organisers the South Coast Challenge will take place in August 2020. If you decide to join our team we will keep in touch with you about training and fundraising and with further details should the situation change. Please always follow Government advice, particularly around staying home and exercise, during this period.

This series of challenges offers routes from 23-100km, taking in some of England’s finest scenery.

The South Coast Challenge takes you over Seven Sisters and along the South Downs Way, through Brighton and Devils Dyke towards the historic town of Arundel where the finish line awaits!

Starting off in Eastbourne, you will trek through Beachy Head, which promises breath-taking views from 162m above sea level. You will then head through Brighton, Devils Dyke and up into the historic town of Arundel along the winding river Arun, onto the finish line!

Your fundraising options:

A: Full 100km Challenge: £15 registration fee + £595 fundraising target
Half Challenge: £10 registration fee + £395 fundraising target
Quarter Challenge: £5 registration fee + £245 fundraising target

B: Full 100km Challenge: £99 registration fee + £299 fundraising target
Half Challenge: £64.50 registration fee +£199 fundraising target
Quarter Challenge: £39.50 registration fee + £119 fundraising target

No matter which distance you choose, you will receive full support from the Action Challenge team – hospitality and plenty of rest stops throughout your trek, as well as a celebratory finishers’ meal and massage. So all you need to do is focus on reaching that finish line and raising funds to help families facing dementia.

Emma and Anna tell us why they took on a trek for Dementia UK:

The walk was both emotionally and physically challenging.  But I can’t explain how lovely the support was around. Locals left out chairs with rest stops, with glasses of water and oranges; not to mention the moral support from the other people taking part.
