Most will walk, some will jog parts, and others will take it on as an Ultra-Marathon. However you decide to tackle the challenge it will be a definitive, but achievable test of endurance, stamina and determination. Be part of an epic event which will see up to 4000 challengers attempt a course and all fundraising for a charity choice.

The staff, the sweeties at each stage, the route (so scenic), the unexpected transport to the train station, the hot meal at the end. The best challenge ever!
