Pilgrim Challenge

2nd-3rd February

A two-day, 66-mile ultra marathon over the legendary North Downs Way

Run, jog or walk your way across the impressive North Downs Way - firmly established as one of our most popular events. Follow in the footsteps of pilgrims travelling to Canterbury as you pass through stunning landscapes steeped in history.

The race soaks up ancient countryside, picturesque villages and areas of outstanding natural beauty.

As with all of our events, everything is taken care of at the Pilgrim Challenge so you can focus on the experience! Overnight accommodation, evening meals, showers, breakfast, food and drink at checkpoints, free parking, and even inspiring guest speakers in the evenings are all included.


You can enter the whole weekend event including food and accommodation, or individual days.

Entries will close one week before the event (or when full).

A waitlist option will be available if the event becomes fully booked.
