All races are point to point trail races that follow the South Downs coastline. SSAFA hopes that athletes of all abilities will sign up for the challenge in what is an amazing opportunity to test themselves whilst raising money for such a worthy cause.

Richard French, Regional fundraising co-ordinator for SSAFA said

“The UK Ultra trail races all run through the stunning South Downs national park, providing some of the best views and trails in the South of England. By taking on one of these races as a SSAFA fundraiser you will be enabling our volunteer caseworkers to carry out their vital work in supporting our Armed forces veterans and their families in need”.

SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing practical, emotional, and financial support to our Forces and their families since 1885 and not just during times of conflict. Our teams of volunteers and employees help those currently serving, veterans, and their families to retain their independence and dignity.
