Race to the King
Write your own piece of history in the heart of the South Downs as you chase the King from ancient coast to sweeping ridges.
Whether you are a first time Ultra runner or a hardened professional there is something to test everyone in this ultra-accessible figure of 8 ultramarathon challenge. The hardest part might just be waving goodbye to your supporters at the festival camp for your second loop.
50km Coastal takes you along the coastal path of Chichester Harbour AONB, through the picturesque ancient village of Bosham. If Castles are your thing, 50km Castle route winds along the
River Arun, past Arundel Castle and up along the South Downs Way before heading back to the finish line.
You will be treated like royalty on your journey with fully stocked pitstops, laden with food and drinks, and tireless support from our crew and medics.
This is a challenge for all, inclusive of all ages, experience, and fitness levels. Whether you’re a seasoned runner, patient plodder or weekend walker – take on 100km in one go, or 50km in one
day via the coast or castle.

From the Uffington White Horse to Liddington Castle, your journey promises to be rich in both history and breathtaking scenery. Trekking through the day and night, it is a true test of endurance to see if you can triumph over the trails to finish smiling at Avebury.

Run 4 Cancer - About Us
Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

“With a sick child, everything is governed by their health; it's a cloud that's permanently hanging over us. We couldn't do this sort of thing normally. Thank you!”
“Two weeks before the trip my PSA reading had reached 28. After our holiday my reading is now 10.8!”
“Being diagnosed with cancer was an extremely stressful time. After the chemo and radiotherapy it was a pleasure to have something to look forward to.”
“These days out for all the family to enjoy mean so much to us as we have to spend so much time apart. Thank you again for all you do in support of families like ours.”
“Thank you for making the difference to the lives of children that have had to cope with things that no one should have to go through, let alone young kids.”
“It is impossible for people not in our situation to understand just how precious the memories of such a great day can be.”
“For a week I swam and did things I never ever thought I would do again. I did not think about cancer for more than a fleeting moment the whole week.”
“I have been through a very rough year finding out I had secondary cancer. Today was a day off from cancer. Many many thanks, it was brilliant!”
