VIRTUAL CHALLENGES

YOUR CHALLENGE, YOUR WAY

Our 2020 ‘Virtual Challenges’ has so far enabled 10,000+ of the Ultra community to keep active & motivated during a difficult period, and connected via our vibrant Facebook group. So far our virtual challengers have raised over £120,000 of much needed fundraising for our Charity Partners. We’ve seen some fantastic feats of endurance, dedication and enthusiasm from everyone who has taken part in our Virtual Challenges. Full details of our October challenge will be going live on the 1st October.

1 - 30 OCT 2020

Frustratingly – our popular Jurassic Coast Challenge has been postponed twice in 2020 because of the Covid restrictions , so we though we’d focus on this spectacular coastline for our October virtual challenge.  Hopefully this will bring back fond memories for those who have taken part in the real thing in previous years, or for those who have just spent time on the costal path, and for those who’ve yet to visit the area – this should  will whet your appetite for the 2021 Jurassic Coast Challenge in May.

 There are 5 distance options to chose from – ranging from our ‘standard’ 100km Jurassic Coast Challenge which heads from Poole Harbour to the finish line beyond the famous Sandstone cliffs at West Bay – with a 200 km, 300 km, 500 km up to a stretching 500 km for those who keep going along the famous  South West Coastal Path all the way down to Lizard Point – the most southerly tip of Britain.

1 - 30 sept 2020

Push yourself further in September on The ‘Virtual’ Thames Path Challenge! Choose from 4 distance options and track your progress, and that of fellow participants, on our special TRAIL MAP with leader boards. Our virtual trails range from 50 km, the Classic 100 km of our ‘annual real’ Thames Path Challenge –  up to the full Sea to Source 375 km. You may choose to incorporate some sections of the real Thames Path into your challenge if you can make it, or just take on the trails & footpaths closer to home whilst clocking up the KM. Take it on with friends, in teams or go it alone and join your community online via our Facebook page to share your journey!

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.

1 - 30 July 2020

A huge congratulations to everyone who took on the Great British Ultra Challenge – so many of you absolutely smashed it out of the park with more kms being racked up than we’ve seen yet! To everyone who took part thank you for sharing your stories & journey with us – it was great to see everyone get into the spirit of the challenge. There is no need to ‘submit’ evidence of the distance achieved – we estimate your medals & buff will be arriving early/mid August we will post an update when we have a specific date.

June saw over 2,400 people take on amazing distances from 100 km – 500 km – with some achieving personal goals & achievements we are hugely proud of! Challengers took on walks, jogs & runs close to home (some even at home!) to achieve their targets – with daily activities which built up to their final total.
