Beachy Head Marathon



If you like running but are tired of road races, then why not sign up for a Rockinghorse place in one of the Beachy Head Marathon events in October 2021? 

Formerly known as the Seven Sisters Marathon, the Beachy Head Marathon is one of the biggest off-road marathons in the UK and is really popular with trail and hill runners due to its challenging but route through the South Downs National Park. And due to the pandemic, this is the only race of this type taking place this year Sussex.

Nicola, a previous participant, explain why she got involved; “I wanted to run Beachy Head marathon last year because if its location, course and great atmosphere. I ran it last year and I have decided to run it again this year, so it must be good! I love running through the country side and Beachy Head offered so many different views running through fields, tracks, small country lanes and along the coast. The support from spectators is wonderful (when your not too remote for people to be there!) and the fellow runners are all really friendly. I decided to run for the rocking horse charity because I know so many families that have benefited from their wonderful work.”
