It has to be said that Downsman 2013 was almost perfect. It was dry. It wasn't hot. It wasn't cold. Once again, we had more people in more teams enter than the previous year, and 92% of those who started the hike went home with a medal for completing the event. Well done to everyone, and hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did. The final results are below.
Next year's competition will be on 4th October 2014 and will be the 47th running of the Sussex Downsman Hike! Entry details and forms will be available from the links around the site in Spring 2014.
Any amendments for 2014 will be posted here as soon as we confirm them.
If you are able to offer assistance with the running of the event, please get in touch with the organisers. We particularly need people willing to man a checkpoint (particularly owners of off road vehicles for the awkward ones).
Additionally, if your company would like to get involved in sponsorship of the event, please ask for our sponsors pack.
