Moyleman 2017 - The Lewes Marathon
Lewes, East Sussex
This is a challenging off-road trail marathon over the hills in the South Downs around Lewes. The course, which takes in five peaks over the hills around Lewes, has some 3,000 feet of climb and is a deliberately tough course.
The route will begin from Landport Bottom and go over Black Cap, Castle Hill, Firle Beacon, Mount Caburn and follow some of the South Downs Way. You can see the whole course ranged on the hills around you as you run, a unique experience.
As per tradition, the finish line is the entrance of Harvey's Brewery Yard, where runners will be rewarded with a celebratory pint.
Participants can opt to tackle the full course or compete as a relay team of two, running half the distance each, with the handover just by Southease railway station.
The race was created in 2014 and is named the Moyleman in memory of runner Chris Moyle, who died aged 42 in 2009, and after race costs all money raised goes to charities that his family supports.
