We would like to congratulate all who took on the on the London Winter Walk this weekend – thank you for being part of such a special event with us, and we hope that you had a fantastic time. Over 3,500 challengers stepped across the start line – taking on either Full Marathon, Half Marathon Loop or 10km. We saw many familiar faces, back to kick start their 2022 Ultra Challenge season and stretch the legs once more, and we’ve welcomed many new challengers earning their 1st of medal!

This year’s challenge has now raised over £400,000 for our Charity Partners and we expect that figure to keep going up over the coming weeks. It’s an amazing sum of money, which is much needed by our charity partners whom had fundraising income slash as a result of the covid-19 pandemic.

The London Winter Walk has now kicked off our 2022 season – our next challenge on the calendar is the Easter Challenge taking place on the 9th April. From a Windsor Racecourse basecamp, you can Walk, Jog, or Run 50 km or 25 km through the Great Park with fantastic Castle views, along the historic Thames Path, and enjoy some wonderful surrounding countryside. You’ll get a few Easter surprises, hot food & drink, a medal & neck buff – and it’s a great opening event to kick off the season, to test those legs, and get in shape! Join as an individual or as a team – do it for yourself or to support a charity.
