Classic footraces between London and Brighton have taken place since 1837.
There is a rich history of many events and challenges between the two cities, mainly road races, right up to 2005 when it was determined that a road race was no longer a viable option due to traffic concerns.
Fast-forward to 2024 and the revival of the pairing of the cities as a trail race! In a twist to the original, it will operate in the reverse direction which brings a wealth of benefits including crossing the finish line in the capital itself, an excellent transport network to return home and opportunity to spend time in London after the event.
The new start time of the race means that 90% of participants will finish before 9pm.
