ANOTHER CHALLENGE?

APRIL 2024

Sat 6th

Easter 50 Challenge

The first Ultra Challenge of the season – and a good one! From our Windsor Racecourse basecamp, you can Walk, Jog or Run looped routes through the Great Park with fantastic Castle views, along the Thames Path, and enjoy some wonderful surrounding countryside. You’ll get a few Easter surprises, a medal & neck buff, hot food & drink at the finish – and it’s a great event to kick off the season, to test those legs, and get in shape!

Join us the weekend before Easter, and energise yourself for the summer months ahead. Windsor is the historic back-drop, the surrounding countryside is superb, it’s easy to get to, there’s plenty of parking, and the racecourse is a perfect basecamp to start & finish your challenge.

– 25 km loop with a rest stop at historic Runnymede, and back to basecamp via the Castle’s Great Park.

– 50 km – as above with a picnic lunch after 25 km, then a 2nd 25 km loop taking in the Thames Path.

– Transport – pre & post challenge bus transfer options from Slough Station (good links to London) & parking available at the basecamp to make it easy to join!
