Trek 100km across the South Downs in under 30 hours and help end poverty with every step.

Exercise TRAILWALKER started out as a military training exercise in Hong Kong in 1981. Organised by the Queen’s Gurkha Signals, and taking place along the famous Maclehose Trail, the exercise sought to test the endurance and teamwork of soldiers of the Queen’s Gurkha Signals over a long and arduous course.

In 1986, Trailwalker was opened to civilian participation for the first time, and now, following the move of the Queen’s Gurkha Signals to the UK, the 100k event takes place across the South Downs, with hundreds of civilians setting off alongside the Gurkhas.

Organised with the Queen’s Gurkha Signals, Trailwalker is a unique opportunity to put your mind and body to the test. Are you a team of four tough enough to take on Trailwalker?

The challenge is to walk, jog or run 100km non-stop across the South Downs Way in under 30 hours in a team of four, with a support crew of two members to help you get to the finish line.

Starting at Queen Elizabeth Country Park early on Saturday morning, the Trailwalker route takes you along the stunning and historical South Downs Way to the finish line at Brighton Racecourse. You will pass through 9 checkpoints along the course. The distance between the checkpoints varies from 6-13km.

Raise money, push yourself to the limit, and face a challenge you’ll remember the rest of your life.
