    Entry fee £15

    Pledge to walk, run or cycle 50, 100 or 300km in February. Complete the distance in chunks of your choosing and at your own pace.

    Create an UltraBritain account and register for YHA’s Virtual Adventurer: Pembrokeshire edition.

    How does the virtual challenge work?

    Once you’ve signed up, you’ll have access to your YHA challenge dashboard. As you accumulate kilometres, you can watch your avatar progress along the route – navigating the trail and passing landmarks and YHA hostels as you go.

    Add your own photos and share your progress with friends and family online.

    How do you log your activity?

    All your walks, runs, hikes or bike rides can count towards your total. Add them manually or link your Strava, Garmin or Fitbit account to your UltraBritain profile and we’ll collect your kilometres automatically.

    Linking to Strava, Garmin Connect or Fitbit

    It’s a simple process and we need ‘read only’ permission (we’ll never write anything to your page). Be sure to mark the activities you want counted as ‘public’ so we can pick them up. 

    To get started, click the ‘Connect Service’ button below the map and choose which you want to connect.
    You'll be taken to the chosen service to approve the connection.

    Fundraise for YHA

    Once you’ve entered, we’ll invite you to set up a JustGiving page and raise funds to support YHA. Everyone who raises £50 will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a free two-night stay at a YHA in Pembrokeshire. Terms and conditions apply.
