The Downland Challenge was an old school 30 mile Ultra put on by Haywards Heath Harriers until 2014. It was many locals first Ultra and was hard,  only had 3 aid stations with only Jelly babies and water, we will be bringing this back to the racing calendar on the same day as our 13 the the hard way Half Marathon.

The Downland  originally started in Clayton Playing fields but this is no longer viable so it will start a mile down the road at Underhill lane where the half starts,

You will have to take on the lung busting climb up the Tank tracks to the South Downs way which you  will follow to Southease where you will turn around and retrace your steps.

We aim to keep it as it was intended with only 3 aid stations  but we will pile them high as we usually do
