South Downs Way 100 mile challenge

The aim is to complete the 100 mile South Down's Way, walking from Winchester to Eastbourne, in a series of ten Friday walks

Coronavirus Update: Not surprisingly, this Challenge has been cancelled for this year. We hope to resume Health Walks when the coronavirus restrictions end, and the South Downs Way Challenge is will be active again in 2021!

Walks will be led by Richard. The distance of each leg varies from approx 8 miles to 13 miles of undulating terrain. Some days will be tougher than others and will depend on length, terrain, weather and your fitness. Three of the longest walks will be the first three (from Winchester to Cocking Hill - 35.9 miles in total).
