Overview

An ultra to honour the ancient Kings along the stunning South Downs. Race to the King is a fully supported 52-mile ultramarathon challenge. The breathtaking route starts near Arundel in West Sussex and runs through the South Downs National Park until you reach the climactic finish on the steps of Winchester Cathedral. Whether you are an elite ultra-runner or a weekend walker looking to raise money for charity you will race through some of the finest scenery in the UK with views stretching across Southern England and out to sea. You can run or walk the route and can also choose to complete the challenge non-stop or break it into two days staying at our overnight basecamp. Both the start and finish are easily accessible and it’s the ideal ultra-distance challenge for those looking to take their first step beyond a marathon..
