For those after a slightly easier challenge, the Beachy Head 10K race returns for it's fifth consecutive year. This is perfect for any first-time or short distance runners. As ever, the 10K still gives competitors the opportunity to enjoy some of the most picturesque and scenic views of the marathon’s route.
