South Downs Way Relay

Intro

South Downs 100 mile relay notes and rough estimates of leg times required in mins for an average runner for completion in 10 to 14 hours (adjusted for severity of leg).

It includes the changeover height at the start of each leg, estimated length of each leg and total climb and descent in feet.

Each leg will still need adjusting for the ability of the runner and conditions.

The Start is at Beachy Head Car Park where toilets are available. Arrive early to sign in, attend the briefing and collect batons.

In general DO NOT follow other runners, they may be lost as well!

Remember you have three races to run today so pace judgement is crucial.

Handy and cheap map is the Geographer’s A-Z SDW Adventure; pocket size atlas covering the whole of the SDW at 1:25000, reprinted from the OS Maps.

Public Transport Routes to start of legs: it’s very slow on buses to the western half of SDW, trains are quicker; public transport does give you the option of doing consecutive legs and going from A to B instead of out and back / taking two cars
