BOOT vs BOAT vs BIKE 2016

Saturday 3rd September 2016

It's back and it's bigger than ever! This year a group of walkers will compete against two boats and a groups of cyclists. Who will win this unusual race from London to Brighton?

Leaving Tower Bridge (London) on Saturday 3 September, a group of walkers, sailors on two boats and a group of cyclists will set off for Brighton in this unusual charity race.

BOOT vs BOAT vs BIKE is the ultimate London to Brighton race! Who will get to Brighton Marina first? The boats are fast, but rely on the mercies of wind, weather and currents. The walkers and cyclists will have to keep going throughout the night to get to Brighton first!


Departing from Tower Bridge, the walkers/runners will travel approximately 60 miles overland - with a few checkpoints and diversions thrown in to make things interesting! There will also be a compulsory rest stop at the mid-way point to help Run 4 Cancer team members to manage the fatigue.

Sunsail F40


The Sail 4 Cancer team will cover between 120 and 180 miles by sea in a Sunsail F40 rocket ship! A development of the Beneteau First 40, the F40 is the ultimate performance racer having won 'Crossover Boat of the Year' as well as taking both first and second in the IRC division of the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race.


The cyclists will be heading out with long-time Bike 4 Cancer supporter Richard Groome and will cycle via the longest possible coastal route which measures 324 kms (201.4 land miles).

The event is open to solo riders and teams of two or four who can ride together or a tag team.
