Trek the South Downs by Night

Sign up now!

See the South Downs National Park as you’ve never seen it before and take on the South Downs Overnight Trek!

Push yourself to the limit with this 42km trek starting at Firle Beacon and walking until morning to see the sun rise over the beautiful white cliffs of the Seven Sisters. 

Following part of the South Downs Way, you’ll battle fatigue, the elements and demanding terrain, negotiating rolling chalk hills and cliff tops that lie between Firle Beacon and Beachy Head. Your hard work will be rewarded with breath-taking views across the South Downs and beautiful starry skies.
