Another sports charity event that is not too far away for anyone who is based in the Sussex area is the Cycling Down Dementia South East event. The event is taking place on Saturday, November 9th. The event starts at Lingfield Racecourse, and it takes a trip through Hartfield, Groombridge, and a few other places before pedalling as far as Bough Beech Reservoir before making it back to your starting point. The ride supports Cycling Down Dementia, which is a virtual fundraising event from Alzheimer's Research UK.

It is £3 for under 16's who want to enter, no matter the route they choose. It's then £31 for the short course, which is 22 miles. It's £40 for the standard course, which is 44 miles, and £40 for the epic course, which is 70 miles.

Of course, we could not mention sports charity events in Sussex without mentioning the Eastbourne Beachy Head Marathon. It's one of the biggest marathons off the road in the country. You may know it better by its former name; Seven Sisters Marathon. It has become one of the most popular marathons because it is challenging in nature, but it boasts one of the most stunning backdrops. The run is 10km, and it takes place on Saturday, October 26th. The Eastbourne Borough Council organises the event, and it costs £60 to enter the race. Registration is still open. Entries close on October 18th 2019.
