Events Overview – Ultra Challenge

Some suggested events:

Lake District Challenge – 8/9th June

Take on England’s finest countryside at your pace. Our Challenge basecamp is in Kendal, and then it’s a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, the Garburn Pass, historic Ambleside, a half way point by Lake Windermere, forests & nature reserves – with some stunning views en-route, before a huge welcome & celebration back at basecamp after a momentous journey.

Thames Path Challenge – 14/15th September

England’s greatest river provides a fantastic backdrop for an unforgettable challenge. Over 3000 adventurers will join the Putney Bridge start, and the full 100km route heads upstream to Henley along the famous Towpath. It’s through Richmond, Hampton Court, Runnymede, and Windsor, with some wonderful scenery to a riverside finish line. Three quarter, half and quarter distance options are also available.

Multiple sign up options available: With Ultra Challenges, you can sign up for full charity sponsorship, where we pay for your place and you commit to fundraising target, mixed funding, where you pay half of your registration fee and have a slightly lower target, or you can pay for your place yourself and we will receive all of your fundraising.

Every pound will help spread awareness of our mission and empower more women to transform their lives across the UK.

We’ll support you every step of the way with dedicated fundraising advice and support. We will also send you a Smart Works top.
