Beachy Head Marathon
When? 24th October 2015
This is probably the UK’s oldest (formerly known as the Seven Sisters Marathon) and biggest off-road marathon. It provides an unbeatable combination of scenic and suicidal.
It starts with a cruelly steep hill and doesn’t get much easier from there on. About halfway in, there’s the climb up the infamous Borstal Hill, where you’re likely to hear most of the swear words. But there is more. Just before the finish, there’s another mean climb. So the air may be blue there, too. Or maybe along the Seven Sisters in between.
