Downslink Ultra


The Downs link Ultra is a 38 mile Ultra point to point race from St Martha’s Hill, Surrey to Shoreham- by-Sea, West Sussex using the Downs Link footpath and bridleway. The trail crosses the Low Weald and mostly follows two former railway lines. The course is mainly flat after the first section so can lead to some fast running. We believe the Downs Link Ultra is an ideal first Ultra for anyone wishing to step up a distance.



The event was a Great Success and we were blessed with fantastic weather once again.

  4. Hi
    I ran the Downslink with you this year (thank you) any idea when you will release the dates for 2015?
    I’m on a call out rota and any changes have to be registered early or we miss out, I want to make sure it doesn’t clash.

  5. Hi im just showing an interest in the downlink ultra i would like to know when the race opens to register

    kind regards
