Trek from Capital to Coast in May 2023 and put your stamina and determination to the test for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

Now in its 10th year, the trek, which attracts over 2,000 adventurers will take you from the beautiful Richmond-Upon-Thames, over the North Downs delighting you with wonderful Surrey & Sussex countryside to half way at Turners Hill. The full 100 km route heads over the South Downs before the welcome sight of the Brighton coastline comes in to view.

There are many ways to take part in the London to Brighton trek. You can take on the challenge without stopping. You can complete it over two days. Or you can just do half, or even a quarter of it.

It’s entirely up to you how to take on this challenge. Most will walk it, many will jog parts, and some will run the full 100km in a fully supported Ultra Marathon. You’ll get full support & hospitality all the way – and with half, and quarter distance options also available – there’s a challenge here for everyone! It will be a unique test of stamina & determination.
