Walk, jog or run 53 miles along the South Downs Way, finishing on the steps of Winchester Cathedral - the burial place of the first kings and queens of England.

You’ll be fully supported alongside 1,200 others, with flexible joining options. You can take on the route non-stop, or stop at the overnight basecamp where there will be food, hot showers and massages.

Here's what to expect:

  • A fully supported and inclusive event, with special offers from event partners.
  • Access to a 16-week training guide and kit list issued to walkers and runners before the event.
  • Signposted route with regular pit stops and loos throughout.
  • Medical support and live event control always on hand.

Taking on a challenge like this calls for a special type of dedication.

And that’s something we know a lot about - our teams work around the clock in the toughest places on the planet to save the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.
