The challenge has been recognised as a points qualifying event for athletes looking to take part in the Trail du Mont Blanc and is one of the toughest yet greatest runs in the country. It’s a tough course with stiles, footpaths and variable terrain but it’s oh so rewarding when you reach that finish line.


It is ideal for seasoned ultra runners or marathon competitors who are up for a new challenge. The rest stops with tailored runners menus, medics, massage, baggage transfers, and full route signage sets the event apart. There are four options available from a full ultra marathon, a two day challenge or 2 different half options (see below).


If you decide to take on one of these epic challenges you’ll be well rewarded knowing that you are helping to provide vital support to people with bowel cancer. Sign up in teams of friends, colleagues or join as an individual and meet fellow runners along the way. It will be a weekend to remember!
