Dogs: Dogs are more than welcome on the walk, but we ask if you can please keep them on short leads, and particularly when walking the cliff top path.
Toilets: Toilets are available at the start/finish point, next to the visitor centre. On the route the only toilets available are in the Hikers Rest Café and Tigers Inn Pub, both in East Dean Village, near our water station.
Car Park: We are using the Riverside car park which is adjacent to the A259, and nearest to our registration point. In the event of this becoming full, the Forest car park is available within the country park. Parking is £3.50, cash or card.
Accessibility: The 8 mile route is not for the fainthearted. The total ascent is approximately 1,450ft and there are a number of stiles and steps.
Refreshments: Please ensure you bring a drink and snack/light lunch with you. There will be a refreshment point on the route on East Dean village green which will consist of water and a biscuit. The café at Seven Sisters Country Park will be open from 10.30am-5pm on the day of the event.
Walk packs: which include your walk t-shirt and number will be sent out 2 weeks prior to the walk.
