Challenge yourself to trek across the Capital taking in unrivalled views of the skyline and historic landmarks.  Most will walk, many will jog and some will run – all will have a special reason to push themselves. You’ll be supported all the way and rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement as you cross the finish line.

Setting out from Putney Bridge, you’ll head east towards the City of London as you zig-zag over the historic bridges of London, passing through Wandsworth, Battersea, Vauxhall, Westminster, and Waterloo before crossing the majestic Tower Bridge and joining the party-style finish line celebration.

Choosing to fundraise for Pilgrims Hospices with your walk, jog or run along the Jurassic Coast will support us in continuing to care for over 2,500 people each year who are facing an incurable illness across east Kent.

What’s included?

  • Covered rest stops, with food and drink
  • Signed route & tracking, with Trek Masters leading groups
  • Medics, podiatrists & massage areas, including a self-help area to treat your own feet
  • Emergency Medical Teams
  • Finishers medal, t-shirt and a glass of fizz as you cross the finish line
  • Shuttle buses and transfers to local train stations

Fundraising options:

With 80% of our hospice funding coming through voluntary donations from our local community, the difference your support makes cannot be overstated. Every £25 that you raise could pay for another hour of specialist nursing care in one of our inpatient units.

Tthere are three ways to fund your entry:

  • Self-funding – you pay the full cost of the event place with no minimum fundraising commitment – just raise as much as you can!
  • Charity sponsorship – you pay a reduced registration fee and, providing you reach the fundraising goal, Pilgrims will cover the cost of your event place
  • Mixed funding – you pay half of the event place cost yourself and, providing you reach the fundraising goal, Pilgrims will pay the balance of the event place cost

Please note: when taking part in Ultra Challenge events you are asked to pledge to raise a sponsorship target when registering for ‘charity sponsorship’ and ‘mixed funding’ options.
