There are a number of hotels in close proximity to the track in Eastbourne and a huge number of other options closer to the seafront which is two miles from the finish. 


Shuttle buses will leave at regular intervals from the finish at Eastbourne Sports Club Athletics Track. The shuttles will make one stop only, back at Hillbarn Recreation Ground for runners to collect their vehicles. Competitors who wish to take the shuttle will need to select that option during the registration process. There is an additional charge of £10 for the shuttle. You can purchase a shuttle ticket by clicking here (If this link is closed it is because it is too close to race day to purchase bus tickets online, but additional tickets will be available at registration on the day).
