CHALLENGE ROUTE

74 MILES

This cut off time gives plenty of time for riders to enjoy all the feed stations and the beautiful country roads of Sussex that the Challenge route uses.

 

If on the other hand setting your best time is your goal there 3 feed stations around the route to keep you energy levels high. Check out the Standard chart below to see what times you must do to reach certain standards.
