Beachy Head Marathon 2023

Take on one of the biggest off-road marathons in the UK. Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd October 2023.

Popular for its scenic and challenging route through the South Downs National Park countryside, Beachy Head Marathon is one for the bucket list.

There’s something for every runner over the course of this weekend: the new 52.6km Ultra event, a challenging half marathon, a scenic 10km loop, and of course, a 26.2 mile marathon.

Formerly known as the Seven Sisters Marathon, the Beachy Head Marathon is renowned for its picturesque views throughout the South Downs National Park and challenging terrain from the start to finish with over 300 steps and 14 gates encountered along the way.

Whichever of the four running events you decide to take on, if you choose to run for St Wilfrid's Hospice then we'll provide you with a branded running vest or T-shirt and plenty of fundraising support from the moment you sign up.

With hospice running costs exceeding £18,000 a day, every pound that you can raise by lacing up your trainers and running over those hills, will enable our clinical teams to continue providing vital end of life care to people who need it.
