How can I take part?

There are many different challenges to take part in across England. Here is a list of the upcoming challenges for you to choose from:

1st and 2nd  May 2021 – Isle of Wight Challenge

(106km, 53km or 26.5km distances)

Walk, Jog or Run one of the most visually spectacular challenge along the Isle of Wight’s coastal path. Take part in this breath-taking challenge with 2,000 other adventurers.

You’ll run along the southern cliffs, past the iconic Needles and up to historic Cowes for the half way stop (53km). For full island challengers it’s on to historic Ventnor, and back to our welcome Base Camp in Chale after an epic 106km journey! This challenge is for all levels of experience with the half and quarter island options.

15th and 16th May 2021 – The Jurassic Coast Challenge

(100km, 50km or 25km distances)

Walk, Jog or Run one of the toughest events in the Ultra Challenges. The Jurassic Coast Challenge is on Dorset’s doorstep with a 2,600m climb across the full 100km – an epic undertaking. Those who take it on will be rewarded by brilliant views  of our coastline and a route that’s simply stunning.

Setting out from Poole Harbour, you will board the Sandbanks Ferry, across to Studland.  You’ll then head up towards Corfe Castle, where the 1st Quarter Challenge ends. Those on the Half will be tackling the ups & downs of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, en route to Weymouth at 58km. The full Challenge continues along the coastline to the far end of Chesil Beach, down into West Bay with its famous sandstone cliffs. You’ll reach the welcome finish line at Bridport where a celebration awaits.
