YOU CHOOSE YOUR CHALLENGE...

 100KM, 50KM, or 25KM

Sliver Test

 

100km or 50km is tough - but achievable, and 60,000 challengers, of all ages & experience levels, have done an Ultra Challenge. There're 12 fantastic Events - choose a distance that suits you - prepare well, and we'll provide the BEST SUPPORT all the way!

FULL 100km CHALLENGE - you keep going - day & night if required. Marquee Rest Stops with cover, seating, free food & drink, toilets, & medical services.

 

2 DAY 'DAYLIGHT 100km' -  with a half-way break & time to sleep/recover - includes a camping option. 

 

HALF CHALLENGE ~ 50km  - 1st or 2nd Half - suits many - and don't forget it's longer than a marathon! Also ideal to join up with a 100km challenger friend for the 2nd Half.

 

QUARTER CHALLENGE ~25km - perfect as a 'starter' Challenge - and gives you time to celebrate in the evening! Also good for supporting a 100km / 50km Challenger on their first leg.

 

THE 'TRI CHALLENGE' - take on 25km first, then choose a 50km on a different event, and finish the season with a full 100km challenge. That's a great challenge for 2020 - at a great price!
