London 2 Brighton Ultra Challenge 2024

  • Date and Time info: 25/05/2024 - 26/05/2024
  • Location: London and Brighton
  • Face-to-face

The original Ultra Challenge will see over 2,000 adventurers take on the Capital to Coast route and test their grit and determination over the weekend. Richmond-Upon-Thames is the start, and it’s over the North Downs with wonderful Surrey and Sussex countryside to half way at Turners Hill. The full 100km route heads over the South Downs before the welcome sight of the Brighton coastline comes in to view. You’ll get full support and hospitality all the way and there's three quarter, half, marathon and quarter distance options also available.
