South Downs Way 50

On Saturday 8th April, lone Stilton Strider Richard Gray travelled to the south coast to run the South Downs Way 50, a 50-mile trail race starting in Worthing and finishing at Eastbourne.

The route covered about 6,000ft of ascent with 85 per cent of it off road, but with some impressive pacing, Richard finished in a fantastic 9hr 39mins.
