Virtual Challenges

Our 2020 ‘Virtual Challenges’ enabled 10,000+ of the Ultra community to keep active & motivated during a difficult period, and connected via our vibrant Facebook group. Virtual Challenges are here to stay, with parallel ‘Virtual Versions’ of each Ultra Challenge, so friends, family & others can join – and ‘themed’ monthly challenges for balance of 2020 so we all stay active!

The Summer Trails
Challenge

1 - 31 August 2020

 

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.

The Great British Ultra Challenge

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.
