Take on our latest virtual challenge – anywhere – anytime and push yourself further in August!

Choose from 5 Famous Trails and track your progress, and that of fellow participants, on our special TRAIL MAP with leader boards. Our virtual trails range from – The Nidderdale Way (87 km & part of our new 2021 Yorkshire Challenge) to The Pennine Way (431 km – the backbone of England) – and as many prefer mountain trails, climb to the 5,895 metre summit of our virtual Kilimanjaro if you’re up for it! We also have the full South Downs Way Trail (161 km) as some consolation for those who missed out on our cancelled South Coast Challenge at the end of August.

Nidderdale Way

87 km distance challenge

Here’s one to whet the appetite – as this will be home to one of our new events for 2021, the Yorkshire Challenge. The trail starts and finishes in Pateley Bridge, encapsulated within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Much of the Way follows the River Nidd, passing some spectacular landmarks en route including Ripley Caslte, Brimham Rocks and the Scar House and Gouthwaite Reservoirs.

South Downs Way

Home of our own South Coast Challenge 100K, take on familiar terrain here and Push Yourself Further as you take on the full length of the trail, 100 miles. Spanning from the dramatic white cliffs of Eastbourne to the cathedral city of Winchester, this historic Way follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpements and ridges of the South Downs, passing picturesque villages along the way.
