As the name implies, the downs link connects the North Downs Way to the South Downs Way.  Starting at St Marthas church in Surrey the route follows two disused railway lines.  The trains stopped running in the 1960's and ever since then the surfaces have been well maintained and are now a haven for wildlife, cyclists and runners alike. 

There is an annual ultra every year, which attracts a high quality field covering the route.  We don't keep track of FKTs set in races, since the race websites do that.
