About the event

Back by popular demand, the North Downs 50 has returned for 2024!

Setting out from the Guildford basecamp, this is a looped 50km route which takes in some of the best of the Surrey hills and the North Downs Way. With picturesque views and stunning countryside, the North Downs 50 is a challenge not to be missed. You’ll get full support & hospitality, and with 25 km options also available, there’s a North Downs 50 Challenge for everyone!

Your entry includes a range of free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support from medics, marshals and massage teams. There is also the option to book accommodation at basecamp, so you’ll be feeling refreshed and ready to start your challenge. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, a t-shirt, and a special medal to celebrate your achievement.
