Getting here...

Discover the easiest way to travel to Eastbourne's Beachy Head Marathon & 10k and the best places to park when you arrive.

The Beachy Head Marathon start is by Bede's School - Duke's Drive, Eastbourne, East Sussex - BN20 7XL.

By Bus...

If you wish to travel by bus from town, then catch either the 3 or 3A from outside the London & County Pub (across from the train station). This will then take you up to Meads and drop you at the start of the South Downs Way, just 2 minutes from the event registration. These buses run approximatel every 15-20 minutes.
