The Moyleman Marathon takes on the South Downs and Lewes Downs in a tough Trail route with steep elevation changes, that has grown popularity with locals and runners from all over the UK.
The Marathon started in memory of Chris Moyleman who was a keen off road runner to the South Downs.
254 runners join the third official Moyleman Marathon today in total, including 48 relay teams.
I was lucky to have sampled this route by invitation in 2014 but have only just been able to attend the official event this year.
