The Beachy Head Marathon, which this year takes place on Saturday 27 October, is one of the biggest off-road marathons in the UK. The race starts at 9.00 from the St Bede’s School site at the western end of the seafront at the foot of the South Downs walking trail. The 26 mile route takes the 1750 runners across the stunning landscape and challenging terrain of the South Downs countryside. Spectators will be able to watch from a variety of viewing points as the course covers the villages of Jevington, Alfriston and Litlington, plus Friston Forest, the Cuckmere Valley, Seven Sisters, Birling Gap and Beachy Head.
