South Downs Trail Marathon

The South Downs Marathon continues to be one of the classic trail runs in the South of England.

The full marathon runs westward from Slindon to finish at Queen Elizabeth Country Park (near Petersfield), while the half marathon and 10km are based at QE Park and run out to join the marathoners as they make their way towards the finish.
