Are you a keen walker or runner looking for a challenge? Perhaps you want to get in shape and re-energise and fundraise for Heartfulness? Whether it’s along a stunning coastline, or on trails in the best of Britain’s countryside, your 2021 Ultra Challenge® will be unforgettable – with full support, new friends made, and an amazing sense of achievement.
Step 1 : Choose your Event
There are 14 events available across UK as part of Ultra Challenge. You can either run or walk the distances. The Distances range from 25 km to 100 km, which you can cover at your own pace in up to 2 days. For example, the Jurassic Coast Challenge has the following options:
- Full Challenge – 100 km
- 1st Half – 50 km
- 2nd Half – 42 km
- 1st Quarter – 25 km
- 2nd Quarter – 33 km
- 10K – 10 km
Many of the ultra-challenges are away from cities so they are expected to be less affected by COVID lockdown.
Once you have decided the location and challenge, to take part in your chosen event, go to the respective event page by selecting from ‘The Events’ here https://ultrachallenge.com/the-events/
Step 2 : Choose your Charity
Signup with either of the three charity options (taking 2nd Quarter Challenge 33 km as an example)
- Self Funding – With this option, you pay a £79 registration fee and without any charity target option. Whatever you raise (£10, £200, etc) will go to the charity
- Mixed Funding – With this option, you pay a £39.50 registration fee, while your charity will pay the remaining. With this option, you have a target of raising at-least £119 for the charity.
- Full Sponsorship – With this option, you only pay £1 registration fee, while your charity will pay the remaining. With this option, you have a target of raising at-least £245 for the charity.
You will be asked to register yourself. As part of registration choose option OTHER CHARITY (in Charity Selection) and select Heartfulness UK as your Charity Selection.
Be quick – there are early bird discounts available.
