Join #TeamARUK for Race to the King 2021. The 52.4-mile route through the rolling chalk hills of the South Downs Way is guaranteed to challenge you every step of the way but the spectacular views are worth every aching muscle at the finish line!

With rolling hills, testing climbs and stunning scenery, this route really has it all! Setting off from Arundel on Saturday morning, you will venture out into the breath-taking South Downs to explore all it has to offer. With the second half of your journey even more beautiful than the first (if you can believe it!) it won’t be long before you see the steps of the impressive Winchester Cathedral. An icon in British history, it is the perfect finish for such a monumental achievement.

This is a tough, but hugely rewarding challenge and you will be taking it on with hundreds of others like-minded trekkers. Whether you are a seasoned runner, patient plodder or weekend walker – with the option to cover the 52.4 miles without stopping, or the option to camp on the Saturday night, this challenge can be catered to you!
