Find out more and join the team

Starting at 8pm from Brighton and following part of the famous South Downs Way, you'll battle fatigue, the elements and the demanding terrain of one of southern England's newest national parks. Walking until morning, in groups of 10-15, you'll cover a marathon distance of 42km, including the famous white cliffs of the Seven Sisters, before ending your gruelling hike at Beachy Head on top of England's highest chalk cliffs. As dawn breaks, your hard work will be rewarded with breathtaking views across the South Downs.

Every penny you raise will mean we can be there to help more animals when they need us most. Together we can make sure animals are cared for, protected and given a second chance in a loving home.
