The Sussex Downsman Hike is an event held annually on the first Saturday in October on the South Downs. The 2018 event will therefore be held on 6th October.
The Hike is organised principally for the Scout and Guide Associations of East and West Sussex, with an open invitation to Scout and Guide Groups throughout Great Britain.
Whilst the location is shown as Devil's Dyke, there are also starts at Bignor, Chantry Post and Steyning Bowl. The hike follows the South Downs Way and has various classes of entry, the longest completing in Eastbourne. See the website for full details.
