To celebrate the 10th edition of the Downslink Ultra the race will be run in reverse from Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex to Chilworth Village Hall.

The Downslink Ultra is a 38 mile Ultra point to point race from St Martha’s Hill, Surrey to Shoreham- by-Sea, West Sussex using the Downslink footpath and bridleway. The trail crosses the Low Weald and mostly follows two former railway lines. The course is mainly flat after the first section so can lead to some fast running. It will be reversed for this years 10th celebration.

We believe the Downslink Ultra is an ideal first Ultra for anyone wishing to step up a distance.
