About the event

Walk, Jog, or Run a 50km Ultra or take on the 25km half challenge - and make it an active Easter.

From our Windsor Racecourse base camp you'll head out on looped routes through the Great Park with fantastic views of Windsor Castle, on to Runnymede, along the Thames Path, and takes in some wonderful countryside.

You’ll get full support all the way, a few post Easter surprises, a celebration finish at base camp, and a BBQ meal. Whether you're on your own or with friends or colleagues it’s a great way to kick off Easter.

What to expect

Your entry to the event includes: 

  • Free food and drink
  • Support from medics and marshals
  • Massage teams
  • A glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a special medal to celebrate your achievement as you cross the finish line

You'll get full support and hospitality from the event organisers Action Challenge every step of the way. At the event, you can expect:

  • A fully signposted route
  • Rest stops every 12.5km
  • Shuttle and transfer services (bookable on the Ultra Challenge website).

All levels of experience are welcome. You can walk, run or jog. You may also walk at your own pace for over 24 hours if needed.

Trekking across Iceland for mental health - Maria's story

"We knew that the challenge was going to be difficult. 58km covering volcanic rock, miles upon miles of thick snow, ice cold river crossings with steep ascents and descents that pack a punch on the knees. But we've supported each other through mental health problems; we can support each other through anything"
