Race to the Stones

Have you got what it takes to conquer the oldest path in Britain? Take part and raise money for St Elizabeth Hospice

The Ridgeway has endured 5,000 years. You just have to last 100km. Find out for yourself what draws 3,000 people from around the world each year to follow in the footsteps of Romans, Vikings and mythical warriors in their quest to reach the ancient stone circle at Avebury Threshold Sports believe in opening up Ultras for All and from sign up to the finish line, they will support you every step of the way along this incredible journey! With a completion rate of over 90% this is the perfect 1st ultra.

This is a challenge for all ages, experience and fitness levels. Whether you’re a seasoned runner, patient plodder or weekend walker – choose to camp over the weekend, take on 100km in one go, or 50km in one day.
