Welcome to the inaugural South Downs 50K brought to you by UK Ultra. A 50km point to point trail race from Falmer to Eastbourne. The race passes through the stunning South Downs National Park and some of nicest trails the U.K. has to offer before finishing over the iconic white cliffs of Beachy Head. The route takes in over 3500ft feet of elevation gain and descent but is the perfect introduction to trail running for newbie ultra runners, and also anyone looking to push themselves over what is a classic ultra distance.
