The Challenge

Take on a 50km Ultra or 25km - and make next Easter weekend one to remember.

Setting out from our basecamp at Windsor Racecourse - you can Walk, Jog, or Run the looped routes through the Great Park, along the Thames Path, and enjoy some of the wonderful surrounding countryside. You'll get full support all the way with rest stops enroute, free food & drink, a few special Easter surprises - and a great sense of achievement to set you up for more  adventures over the summer months.

You’ll be fully supported on the day, with excellent food and rest stops during your trek.

The route

 

With 50km or 25km options - it's the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself this spring and get in shape. Join 2,000 others for an Easter Challenge - and Walk, Jog, or Run it starting out from Windsor Racecourse.

From the Racecourse basecamp - the 25km loop heads along the Thames Path passing Alexandra & Home Park, with a pit stop for snacks & drinks near historic Runnymede, before heading to Windsor Great Park with magnificent views of the Castle. Then back to basecamp for the finish line celebrations.

The full 50km Ultra option initially takes in the same route as the 25 km'er, with lunch back at the Racecourse - followed by a further 25km loop heading west along the Thames Path, passing through Dorney & Eton Wick, and then following the Jubilee River back to basecamp.

Which ever distance you choose - it will be a great way to spend your Easter Saturday - and then take it a bit easier on the Sunday!
