 LONDON2BRIGHTON CHALLENGE
Walk, Jog or Run 100km !!

 23 – 24 May 2015

The London 2 Brighton Challenge is a tough but rewarding walk, jog, or run. The 100km route from city to coast – across varied terrain, through day and night – is a challenge like no other. Over the bank holiday weekend of 23-24 May 2015- many will take on the longest walk of their lives, some will attempt the challenge as an ultra marathon style run with an eye on the clock, and others will mix it up with a bit of jogging and walking! A personal goal for a charity of your choice – sign up as either an individual and meet other challengers along the way or create a team of friends, families or colleagues.

 

In previous years 1,500 took on the challenge – fundraising over £1 million forUKcharities. Nearly 75% of challengers completed the full course, with many displaying amazing determination and emotion. To succeed on this challenge requires good preparation, the ability to dig deep, and to absorb the camaraderie and team work to take you all the way to finish line inBrighton.
