South Downs Way National Trail Itineraries

Completion in 9 days is more than feasible, but the 7th section between River Adur and River Ouse is much longer than the other legs and might need splitting in two. A fit walker could complete the walk in 5 days or so, but walking over 8-10 days would allow more time to see the sights on the way.
