What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The Back2Lifers team will be taking on yet another ultra marathon this year, Called 'The Race to the King' across The South Downs on 23/24th June 2018.

The team that formed in 2016 will be walking another double marathon ultra of over 52Miles non stop in 24 hours. Some of the team's feet still haven't recovered from the 2016 & 2017 Ultra's, this is not an easy feat! It takes all they have to give.

This is the triple crown of the Threshold Sports Trail Series. Not many complete all 3! Come rain or shine! This team will not give up! The Cover picture is of the team after completing the 100km in 24 hours in 2016.

Route Overview For Race to The King 2018

Starting at the Slindon Estate near Arundel and finishing at Winchester Cathedral. The route takes you along the South Downs Way, an ancient path along a ridge of chalk hills. Not only does the route offer breath-taking panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, there are also numerous historical sites along the way to pique the interest.

The History of the Route

Spanning from the chalk cliffs in East Sussex to the ancient capital of Winchester, humans have been using the South Downs for thousands of years. Millennia of use has left the rolling chalk landscape studded with historical sites as generations have been drawn to the sweeping views North over the Weald and South over the English Channel.

Route Highlights

Old Winchester Hill

Beacon Hill

Winchester Cathedral
