The magical Cotswold Way provides a stunning setting for a testing challenge with some fantastic views en-route and tough hills in between. Our basecamp in Cirencester is the hub for a 100 km looped route through the heart of the Cotswolds, providing a stunning setting for 2,000 adventurers to test themselves.

There are rolling hills, villages and the Cotswold Way, footpaths and trails. You’ll receive full support and hospitality, including optional university style accommodation at our basecamp. With half and quarter distance challenges also, there’s a Cotswold Way Challenge for everyone.

It's your challenge, your way!

Covid Secure Measures

Ultra Challenges were one of the UK’s first ‘Covid Secure’ mass participation challenges in 2020 and we will also be implementing standardised measures to keep all participants safe whilst on each challenge in 2022. You’ll see special social distancing requirements and hygiene measures in place across many elements of the events, ensuring each Ultra Challenge is as low risk as possible for everyone involved. For more information on this, click here.

Please note: Due to the ongoing pandemic, there may be changes made to events that are outside of Child Bereavement UK's control. If any changes are made, such as a change in date, we will ensure we inform you as soon as possible.
