Join us for our sponsored walk across the beautiful South Downs where an army of KTF supporters will be walking to raise money for the foundation. To make this an event for all ages and fitness levels there is a choice of three distances: marathon (26 miles), half marathon (13 miles) and quarter marathon (6.5 miles). So far, the sponsored walks have raised nearly £30,000 for KTF and we are looking forward to another fun, family event and crossing our fingers for more blue skies (and dolphins!). Places will be limited to 100 walkers.
Photos of previous years' walks can be found in our Facebook albums.
Sunday 10 July 2022
East Dean, East Sussex
Registration is free but we ask that you aim to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.
There will be halfway refreshment points on each route and plentiful tea, coffee and cake at the end.
All routes will be led by stewards but route maps and directions will also be provided if you are a confident walker and would like to go at your own pace.
How do I sign up?
Just choose a distance from the options below and register here. If you are entering as a family then you only need to complete one form.
Which walk should I choose?
All three walks are circular and begin and end at the Green in East Dean.
Tiger Mammoth, 26 miles, depart 8am
This is a challenging walk for fit and experienced walkers. It is the length of a full marathon and takes in 3 of the Sussex peaks. You may need to train for this one. The challenge is to complete the walk in 10 hours!
Tiger Medium, 13 miles, depart 8am
This walk is still a good push at 13 miles, but it is not as hardcore as the Tiger Mammoth. It is a half marathon in length and still takes in Sussex peaks. This walk should take approximately 5 ½ - 6 hours at a steady walk but do factor in breaks and chances to enjoy the amazing scenery which will add to the total walk time.
Tiger Mini, 6.5 miles, depart 10am
This walk is for children and families, or less experienced walkers. It does have several steep climbs, and part of the route runs along the cliff top. This walk would take about 3 hours at a steady pace, but for those with children, it may take significantly longer, especially with breaks. The walk is not suitable for buggies or pushchairs. As a parent, you are best placed to know if this distance is realistic for your child. However, we would suggest they are at least five years old. All children under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.
On all 3 routes, you are never too far from a road. If you need to cut the walk short, there are several points where a taxi could collect you.
