The North Downs Way 100 is a 100 mile continuous Trail Run along the North Downs Way. The course travels from Farnham in the Surrey Hills to Ashford in Kent. The race begins in Farnham at the Western end of the North Downs. The course works its way through some of the best of the English countryside before traveling through the small village of Puttenham and on to Guildford. It then continues on to Ranmore Common before the steepest climb of the race up to the top of Box Hill. The trail then drops down the other side and back up to Reigate Hill, on through Merstham to Oxted and a further 8 miles to Knockholt Pound and the 50 mile point at the outermost edge of Greater London. The course then travels on through Wrotham and Holly Hill before crossing the Medway Bridge. The final 25 miles see runners travel South East towards Dover running the majority on trails, paying brief visits to the villages of Detling, Hollingbourne, Harrietsham and Charing before dropping down into Wye and the finish.

Course Highlights

The race starts at the western origin of the North Downs Way trail and stays entirely on the national trail until Knockholt Pound where runners will detour to the Village Hall 50 mile aid station. The race then continues on 50 miles further east down the trail, to Ashford and the finish. 

This is a National Trail maintained by the National Trail Trust together with the various county councils and extends all the way to Dover on the South East Coast of the United Kingdom. The trail is open year round to the public, but cuts through a mixture of private land and public byways. It is absolutely essential that runners respect the land at all times on the course. 

The race begins at the very start of the NDW trail. Following the briefing, runners will be led down to the race start point approximately 400 yards from the school. The NDW trail starts at a Waymark post on the corner of Station Hill and the A31 Farnham Bypass. The route begins on a short stretch of tarmac running alongside a river before heading into more rural ground. The NDW trail is predominantly off road but runners get a quick insight into the overall terrain of the course within the first 4 miles as the route makes its way through woodland, over tracks through fields and along minor roads through villages.
