    A New Year – and A New Challenge! Perfect to launch your 2022 fitness regime, burn off a few of those excess Christmas pounds, and to get in shape for what could be an energised year ahead!

    The Across Britain Virtual Challenge is about crossing the nation on foot, or on your bike – South to North or to West to East – and always Coast to Coast!

    There are 5 route options – from the 125 km ‘England Coast 2 Coast’ which is ideal for the occasional walker to get back into their stride, the ‘Scotland Coast 2 Coast’ at 650 km and a real challenge for seasoned trekkers and runners braving the cold, up to the full 1400 km ‘Great Britain Coast 2 Coast’ which might suit many on 2 wheels, and perhaps just a few hardened types on 2 feet with plenty of free time over the next 2 months!

    Choose your challenge – take it on anywhere, anytime from New Year’s Day onwards throughout Jan and Feb – log your progress and move across our Virtual Map of Great Britain, whilst sharing your stories online as you head towards the coast.

    There are ‘Prize Draws’ for reaching your halfway point by the end of January - and also for all who have crossed their coastal finish line by 28 th February. Fundraise for a charity if you wish to (optional) - and there’s a fantastic Across Britain Challenge medal and neck buff for all taking part.
