Cuckmere Haven - A little more than 15 miles - POWER HIKE
This is a spectacular hike that takes you across the springy grass above the iconic white chalk cliff tops with their precipitous drop into the sea below. It follows winding trails through the lush woodland at Friston Forest; the Seven Sisters Country park; along the banks of the meandering Cuckmere River and down onto the shingle beach at Cuckmere Haven. This is NOT a stroll, this is NOT a run. This is a chance to cover a little over 15 miles by hiking, power walking and is an ideal opportunity to cover a distance with a weighted pack. If you are entered into a self sufficient ultra this is a great opportunity to get out and really get a feel over a decent distance of the weight you are going to carry on the event day. The Summer Spine is two weeks after this date!
