General Information:     The Marathon course runs through wooded and grassland areas of the Sussex Downs.
                         There are no water crossings. The seven artificial obstacles are constructed on fairly flat
                         ground all within easy walking distance of the main complex and stable area. Exercising is
                         within the confines of the Park.

Location:                Stanmer Park is on the A27 Lewes road approximately 2 miles northeast of Brighton, next
                         door to Sussex University. Post code BN1 9SE. When approaching from the M25/London
                         travelling towards Lewes, Eastbourne and Hastings, the signs for the Universities should be
                         followed. Should this be missed, it is possible to take the slip road at Sussex University, and
                         return down the A27 exiting at Southern Water before turning right into the Park. From
                         Eastbourne/Lewes direction follow along the A27, the exit is at Southern Water just after the
                         overpass at Sussex University.

                         There is a local bus and train service (Stanmer/University station is just across the main A27
                         next to Southern Water) to Brighton, Lewes and Eastbourne.

Alternative Interests:   Stylish, cosmopolitan and eccentric, Brighton has had a reputation for glamour since the
                         eighteenth century when the Prince Regent (later George IV) first visited and decided to stay.
                         Take a walk along the beachfront where bars, cafés, restaurants, and the Artist’s Quarter
                         provide the perfect place to browse and relax. Take in the Regency architecture that is on a
                         par with the best in the country; visit the exotic Pavilion; enjoy the famous nightlife and the
                         enormous range of visual and performing arts including Brighton International Arts Festival,
                         the largest in England. Discover the historic heart of the city in the world famous Lanes and
                         shop until you drop in the bohemian North Lane.
