  WALK, JOG, or RUN IT

2019 Divider 699

Endurance style events for ALL! Over 20,000 adventurers will take on our 9 Ultra Challenge events in 2019 - with a wide range ages, fitness levels, and experience - all with a goal to push themselves further. Walk, Jog, or Run it - and you'll receive the best support available on any UK event all the way to your finish line.

Ultra Challenges are fun, engaging, even life changing for some with personal boundries re-defined - and you'll meet lots of new friends on your journey. Many choose to link their Challenge with a charity of their choice to support a special cause, or to help others who may face tougher challenges in their life. The 2019 Series will help to raise over £5 million for UK charities.

Join us. You'll be amazed at what's achievable when you dig deep!

100km or 50km sounds so far! It is tough - but absolutely achievable - and so far over 55,000 people have done an Ultra Challenge. There's 9 fantastic Events for 2019 - choose the Challenge & distance that's right for you - prepare well - dig deep - and we'll support you all the way!

Full 100km Challenge - you just keep going - day & night if required - with Rest Stops en route with cover, seating, food, toilets, & medical services

 

2 Day Daylight 100km -  with a half way break / sleep - including a camping option 

 

Half Challenge ~ 50km  - 1st or 2nd Half - suits many who are new to the world of Ultras -  and remember it's more than a marathon! Also perfect if you want to join up with a 100km challenger friend for the 2nd Half

 

Quarter Challenge ~25km - perfect as starter Challenge for many - and gives plenty of time to celebrate in the evening! Also ideal if you're supporting a full distance Challenger on their initial leg.

 

NEW TRI Challenge - take on 25km first, then choose 50km on a different event, and finish your season with a full 100km challenge. Check out our great value 'Multi Event Deals'.

 

Whichever Challenge you choose, you can sign-up as an Individual and meet others along the way - or as a Team and help each other!

 

 Walk it, Jog it, or Run it

 - 
most do this - you can be new to endurance style challenges - or a seasoned hiker. Take it on at your pace.

50km Half Challenge: 10-16 hours

25km Quarter Challenge: 4-8 hours

JOG IT -  very popular with those out for a real challenge - and in practice means you run a bit - walk a bit - mix it up - and see how it all goes!

 

Full 100km: 16-20 hours 'jogging'

50km Half Challenge: 7-10 hours

25km Quarter Challenge: 3-4 hours


RUN IT - the hard core bunch who head out first out for a sharp time - who've run an Ultra before - or marathon runners stepping up their distance. Special 'runners' at Rest Stops - and UTMB points available on all full distance Challenges.


Full 100km: 9-15 hours running
50km Half Challenge: 4-7 hours
25km Quarter Challenge: 2-3 hours

HOW IT WORKS

  Click Below...

We help you prepare

Training Walk 699x200

 

Whether your goal is a sub-24 hour 100km as a walk, or as is very common, just to complete the Challenge distance - good preparation is the key. Sign up for an Ultra Challenge and you'll get:

 

Challenge APP - all the info at your finger tips on your mobile.

 

Training Plans - suggested time-lines to work to - and pre challenge milestones to aim for.

 

Training Walks & Runs - we organise optional days and weekends throughout the year, and it's a great way to meet our team, test your kit, and get in shape! 

 

Equipment Lists - the App and the website Participant area have all the details.

 

Preparation Videos - we have a series from our 'expert panel' - covering the important topics to focus on - including feet, nutrition, training, and kit.

 

You can always try a shorter distance first - 25/50km - and use it to build up to your 100km challenge later in the season.

 

We support you all the way
