2019 Divider 699

Endurance style events for all! Over 25,000 adventurers will take part in 12 Ultra Challenge events in 2020 - with a wide range of fitness levels, ages, and experience - but all with the aim to push themselves further. Walk it, Jog it, or Run it - and you'll receive the best support available on any UK event all the way to your finish.

Ultra Challenges are fun, engaging, and often life chaging - and you'll meet new friends on your journey.  Many will choose to link their Challenge with a charity of their choice and help others who may face tougher challenges.

Join us - set a new goal - and you'll be amazed at what's achievable when you dig deep!

 100km, 50km, or 25km

Sliver Test


100km or 50km sounds so far! It is tough - but achievable - and so far over 50,000 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.


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


Half Challenge ~ 50km  - 1st or 2nd Half - suits many who are new to the world of Ultras - or want to join up with a 100km challenger friend for the 2nd Half


Quarter Challenge ~25km - perfect if you want a great Challenge with time to celebrate in the evening - or 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.


 Walk it, Jog it, or Run it

Jurassic Pax Walkers 699x200

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

Full 100km: 21-34 hours walking

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 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 the distance.

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

Register for the pace you think sounds right to you. If you end up a bit slower or faster than you thought - no problem! It's Your Challenge - Your Way!

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
