THE RULES

  • The LDWA South Downs Marathon is open to walkers and runners who must be over 18 years of age on the day of the event. 
  • Membership of the LDWA is not required. 
  • No entries on the day.
  • Sorry, no dogs.
  • The opening and closing times of the check and clip points will be strictly adhered to. 
  • To qualify for a certificate all entrants must finish by 1900 and pass through all the check and clip points, within the time limits.
  • Retirements must be made at checkpoints.  If a retiree is unable to reach a checkpoint they should pass their check card to another entrant, who will notify the next checkpoint. If this is not possible the emergency phone number provided on the check card should be used.  The checkpoint marshals will have the right to retire any entrant who they consider is unfit to continue.  Transport back to the start will be provided for retirees.
  • The weather on the South Downs can change quickly so dress accordingly.
  • All entrants should carry maps to cover the whole route (OS Landranger 198*/199 or Explorer 123/OL25).  * As only a small part of Landranger 198 is required an OS Get-A-Map based copy of the required portion will be available with the route description.  Please note – a paper route description must be carried by each entrant even if walking in a group - you may get separated – or if navigating by smart phone or GPS – your batteries might go flat.  Failure to carry a route description may mean that (a) you are not covered by the LDWA Public Liability Insurance and (b) that you will be disqualified.
