Ultramarathons in London
Take on the Thames Path Challenge following England's greatest river - most will walk it, many will jog, some will run it, and all will have a special reason to push themselves.
Our full Thames Path Challenge 100km route heads from Putney Bridge past Hampton Court to Runnymede of Magna Carta fame at 50km, then on past wonderful scenery that's steeped in history all the way to Henley. With half & quarter distance options - there's a challenge for everyone.
There's also the 'Thames Bridges Trek' - 25km walk through the heart of Central London zig-zagging over 16 famous bridges - with the best views of the Capital's landmarks.
Whichever distance you go for, your challenge will be a real test of spirit and determination. You will be supported all the way by our team, and rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement.
The Challenge is an off-road and self-navigated challenge through the picturesque Hertfordshire countryside around Stevenage. RUN or WALK our classic off-road courses 13.1 miles, 18miles, 26.2 miles or 50K. The event will be held under ARC rules.
The St Albans Stampede is an ultra marathon running event, organised by the St Albans Striders running club, held in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, covering parts of Heartwood Forest and Nomansland Common. The challenge is to cover the most amount of distance (in miles) over a designated time period of 12hrs 9am - 9pm this can be undertaken solo, as a pair or as a team relay (4 - 8 people options), and is suitable for all abilities! The course is a 4 mile route and it's up to you, or your team how you tackle it to get the most miles clocked!
The event was a fantastic success last year with runners enjoying the beautiful countryside and great HQ atmosphere - open all day for food, cakes, viewing photo's or just resting!
Its worth noting that the category winners will be awarded on distance covered only. In other words, you dont have to run the full 12hrs to have successfully completed the challenge. The 12hr duration is simply the maximum allowable time. All entrants, even those that run for 1-2hrs, will have successfully participated in the event and be awarded a medal for their efforts. And if participants from the 100 Marathon Club want to stop at marathon distance to record a successful completion, this is very much acceptable.
With five challenges, we have something for everyone. Whether you are already fit or wanting to kick-start your own or your familys fitness in 2018, the right experience to suit you is just a click away.
