We know one size doesn’t fit all. That is why we have a range of packages on offer over the weekend. Check out the options below and then get rallying a team of people to join you on the start-line. If you’re thinking about breaking it into two days and are not sure about camping, rest assured that it is a highlight of any weekend with Threshold. Forget pokey showers and cold beans; think proper food, good bars, and an awaiting tent. It’s not 5 star luxury… it’s a lot more fun!

Latest news about the route

Race to the King is a true outdoor challenge. We are lucky enough to be able to run through one of the most beautiful national parks in the UK. As an off-road trail run we are guided by mother nature and as a result this means the route sometimes has to change right up until the day of the event. The route has changed since 2016, with the main change being that of the basecamp. We have found a new location which should provide stunning views from your tented accommodation! The change in basecamp also brings a slight tweak in the route. This means Day 1 will total, 23.4 miles and Day 2 will total 29.8 miles; for those of you joining us for both days and staying at the basecamp, your total distance will equate 53.2 miles. Non-stop participants will bypass the basecamp meaning their total distance will be 53 miles. As mentioned above, these changes have been made to ensure everyone gets to experience the best of The South Downs Way but is of course dictated by mother nature at times. If you have any questions about the route changes feel free to email us on info@racetotheking.com.
