The London2Brighton Challenge 27th – 28th May 2017

The London2Brighton Challenge will take place on the 27th – 28th May 2017 and will be passing through Bletchingley.

This will be the sixth year of the event and we are hugely excited to kick start our season with this fantastic challenge once again. To give you a bit more information about the challenge we will be starting in Richmond, between 6:10am and 11am, where 3000 runners and walkers will make their way along the 100km route to Brighton. Participants will leave Old Deer Park in Richmond at staggered intervals of twenty minutes, helping to protect the environment and lessen the impact on the local community. We see all types of people participate from ultra runners to first time walkers who all share the one focus of raising much needed funds for over 400 different charities including:

  • Cancer Research UK
  • Great Ormond Street Hospital
  • Macmillan Cancer Support
  • Alzheimer’s Society
  • Help for Hero’s
  • Breakthrough Breast Cancer
  • Make – A – Wish
