Love being surrounded by nature? Run this trail half marathon through the South Downs. 

The South Downs Trail Half Marathon takes place in the gorgeous South Downs National Park. There's also a full marathon event for those looking to take on a longer distance.

Half-marathoners will start and finish at Queen Elizabeth Country Park. You’ll be surrounded by green, as you run across fields to the village of Chalton.

From there you’ll pick up the picturesque Sussex Border Path. The path will bring you to the South Downs Way, where the half marathon route joins the marathon route for four miles.

Would you take on an off-road, scenic challenge for Marie Curie?
