It's Your Challenge
Your Way!

Endurance style events at your pace, for a wide range of fitness levels, ages, and experience – for teams and individuals – for a charity of your choice, or just do it for yourself. There are no obstacles or mud pools – just trails, wonderful British countryside, full support, hospitality, camaraderie, and your spirit & determination. With 14 events in 2022 and 3 distance options – there’s an Ultra Challenge® for everyone!

Your challenge at your pace! Most will walk – many will ‘jog’ and may run a bit, walk a bit, and see how it all goes. At the front runners might be stepping up from a marathon distance to a multistage Ultra, or testing themselves against the clock, with some out for UTMB points.

A ‘continuous’ full 100 km is tough, but is achievable with our support & rest stops. There’s a 2 day 100 km ‘Daylight’ option with half way camping, 50 km ‘half’ challenges, and 25 km ‘quarters’. We’ve a few 10 km ‘taster’ options – and also ‘Virtual Versions’ of each Ultra Challenge so friends & family can join in. 

It only takes 2 to make a Team! A Team of friends can motivate & support each other whilst sharing an unforgettable adventure, with a great reason to celebrate afterwards! Individuals will meet new friends en-route – and our Team is there to look after everyone!

Many fundraise for a charity of their choice, and you’ll be amazed how much can be raised, as friends & family will recognise & support your endeavours. The Series will hopefully raise over £7 million in 2022 for partner charities. Equally, others just want a great challenge – Self Fund their place – and achieve something really special.

For some, one event is not enough! Save ££’s with our best value ‘Multi Deals’, including the ‘Tri-Challenge’ which starts with a 25 km, then 50 km on another Event, and finish with a full 100 km on a 3rd event.

If you have ambitions of competing in the famous Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc run – Ultra Challenges are perfect to clock up the ‘qualifying points’ needed. Full Challenges (~100 km) have 3 or 4 points available & Half Challenges (~50 km) from 1 – 3 points.  

Looking for a great event to get your team back together, without all the hassle of organising it? Your Team will be energised & bonding on a fun, accessible, safe, high quality event. With optional hospitality packages – make an Ultra Challenge your company’s special event – maybe supporting your ‘charity of the year’.

Alongside the ‘real’ Ultra Challenges – there are parallel ‘Virtual Versions’ of each event – enabling friends, family, and anyone else to get involved if they’re up for a challenge! A great way to boost your fundraising network if you’re supporting a charity!

Full Support

We’ll help you prepare for your Ultra Challenge® – with an App, online guides, forums, and training walks. On the day there’re Covid-safe venues, camping options, a noisy send off, a fully signed route, chip timing, marquee rest stops, fantastic food & drink, and expert safety, medical & welfare teams. It’s a big finish line cheer, a medal, a glass of fizz, finishers t shirt, massage, BBQ, and a weekend to really remember!

Download the App once you’ve signed up – with maps, guides, extras booking, and the latest updates. Our Facebook forum is great place for advice and meeting Challengers. If you’re fundraising, your charity sends you a support pack, contact details & procedures.

Experienced Ultra Challengers help develop our training guides, on – foot care, nutrition, hydration, & building distance up for all levels of experience. We also run optional training walks, and for runners sessions with an Ultra coach.

There are bookable coach transfers and shuttle busses before & after your challenge to make your travel plans a bit easier.  Most Events also offer camping packages at the ~50 km ‘half way’ of the full challenge, and sometimes at the start venue beforehand.

Pink arrows, ribbon, & glow-sticks at night, mark the route, and with Google maps in the App – you won’t get lost! Our chip timing has you scanned at rest stops, with your progress tracked, and can be  shared online for family & friends. 

There’ covered rest stops every ~12.5 km, with major stops each ~25 km – with seating, clean toilets, medical services, & shuttle busses. There’s a range of snacks & drinks at all stops, with full meals at major ones & finish – all included in your entry fee.

Rest stops have expert medical teams, including – doctors, paramedics, first aiders, podiatrists, & massage services. There’re emergency response teams, safety marshals & ‘Trek Masters’ on the route – with a 24 hr control room just a phone call away. 

The finish line is a celebration, and quite emotional for many after a tough journey. You’ll get a big cheer, a medal, a glass of fizz, a visit the massage tent or foot clinic, and a welcome BBQ. Memories will be long lasting – and perhaps your goals redefined.
