Take on the 2021 London 2 Brighton Challenge

London 2 Brighton LogoWalk, jog or run the London 2 Brighton Challenge on 29 & 30 May 2021. Choose your distance and the level of fundraising you’d like to commit to. Join #TeamChildrenwithCancerUK today and help us be there for children and families affected by childhood cancer.

2,000 adventurers of all experience levels and ages will take on a classic capital to coast route, testing their grit over the Bank Holiday weekend. Most will walk, but many will jog or run the full 100km, and with half & quarter distance options there’s a challenge for everyone. A Richmond start by the Thames – then the North Downs and wonderful Surrey and Sussex countryside to halfway at Turners Hill. The 100km route heads up and over the South Downs before the welcome sight of the Brighton coastline comes in to view.

Use code CWC2021 for a 25% off your charity place registration fee.
