    Entry fee £15

    Pledge to walk, run or cycle 75km, 150km, 338km this September and October as part of YHA Festival of Walking. Complete the distance of the Ravenber Way in chunks of your choosing and at your own pace.

    It’s just £15 to enter, with no minimum fundraising target, and all the money raised will support YHA’s work reconnecting people with nature, the outdoors, heritage and culture. Once complete, you’ll get a stylish wooden event medal to celebrate your achievement. 

    Create an UltraBritain account and register for YHA’s Virtual Adventurer: Ravenber Way. Why not make it a competition with family and friends or your running group? The more that sign up, the better the contest and the greater the fundraising.

    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 account to your Ultra Britain profile and we’ll collect your kilometres automatically.


    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 with Strava’ button and approve the connection when Strava prompts you. For more information, take a look at our help section.



    Once you’ve entered, we’ll invite you to set up a Just Giving page and raise funds to support YHA. As an added bonus, everyone who raises £50 will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a free two-night YHA stay. Terms and conditions apply


    YHA is a leading social enterprise and a charity on a mission to enrich lives through brilliant hostel stays and experiences that improve health, wellbeing and life skills. With properties all over England and Wales, we provide inclusive adventures, in extraordinary buildings, in amazing places. Take a look at this short video to learn more.
