Spartans Tim Robinson and Chris Holland ran the 40th Beachy Head Marathon on Saturday.
The race started in Eastbourne and immediately climbed 100 metres in the first kilometre to Beachy Head. During the climb the runners are entertained by a bag piper. From there the course headed inland up and down and across the South Downs, through villages and up steps, before returning to the coast at Cuckmere Haven to complete the final se ven miles over the Seven Sisters back to Beachy Head. One of the UK’s hardest but picturesque marathon routes.
