This year Chailey Heritage Foundation was the chosen charity of The South Downs Relay.
The relay is 97 miles of the South Downs Way, from Beachy Head to Winchester, divided into 18 legs of between 3.75 and 8 miles. The route is almost entirely off-road, with some very difficult and even dangerous terrain for a runner; numerous ascents, excruciatingly steep, or long, or both. In teams of 6, each runner tackles 3 non-consecutive legs while the others shuttle between changeovers in a minibus.
The event raised an amazing £1500 for Chailey!
