Challenging 5 Mile Fell run

Butser Hill at 889’ is the highest point on the South Downs, overlooking the town of Petersfield and is the natural heart of the South Downs National Park. Part of the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Butser Hill is set close to the A3 road and the railway line which runs from London to Portsmouth, It has, since the iron age, been an important landmark in Southern England, whilst acting as a historic signalling point for sending messages to and from the capital. Founded in 1978 as one of the first major - and toughest - mass runs, this event pre-dated the first London Marathon and was well before both the Great North Run and Great South Run. It has raised in excess of £200,000 for charities over the years.
