South Downs Trail – 17 June 2017

South Downs Trail runners

The South Downs Marathon has become a classic on the Trail Running calendar - which is not surprising when you look at the fantastic scenery on the route.

In 2012 a half marathon was launched, giving a wide range of options and turning the day into a festival of running – and with spectators and participants staying all day and enjoying picnics on the grass at the finish under Butser Hill, this really does feel like a festival.
