South Downs Way 100

One Stilton Strider took a long journey to the South Coast on June 10th, competing in the South Downs Way 100 – a nonstop 100 mile footrace from Winchester to Eastbourne.

After 100 miles of trails and 12,000 feet of ascent, starting at 6am and having run all day and seen the sun both set and rise again, the race culminates in a couple of miles through the streets of Eastbourne and one final lap of the athletics track. With the setting of England’s newest National Park over a sunny June weekend and the great organisation and support of Centurion Running and 130 fantastic volunteers, Richard Gray completed the race in 123rd position in 25 hours and 33 minutes.

Richard was raising money for Mind, the mental health charity, and donations can be made via
