Take on the Wye Valley Challenge for Pilgrims across 11-12 August 2018.
The Ultra Challenge series offers five inspiring endurance events that you can walk, jog or run to raise vital funds for Pilgrims. Whether it’s a 25km walk, a testing 50km jog or a 100km marathon, there’s something for all abilities. These challenges are perfect for people of any fitness level, with softer options for beginners and ‘ultra’ options for those really going for it – along with all those in between!
Ultra Challenge events are all-inclusive with an extremely high level of hospitality. They include regular rest stops approximately every 12.5km, with drinks and snacks, a fully signed route (so you won’t get lost) and hot meals to keep you going.
Passing by stunning scenery, meeting new friends and discovering hidden resilience and spirit, few can describe their elation at crossing the finish line.
Wye Valley Challenge
Take on the dramatic landscape straddling the England and Wales border: an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Start at Chepstow then wind through woodlands and the limestone cliffs of the Wye gorge, with the magical twisting riverside path passing Tintern Abbey en-route to Ross-on-Wye at the halfway point. You’ll climb Capler Hill to the Iron Age fort and traverse above the river before Hereford’s cathedral comes into view, and a welcome finish line after an amazing 100km journey with full support and hospitality all the way.
