Date: Saturday 23 June to Sunday 24 June 2018
Location: Yorkshire
Sponsorship pledge: from £300

As part of our ultra-challenge series, the 100K Yorkshire will take you through breathtaking countryside. You will set off on Saturday morning, walking through the day and night with the aim of completing the route in 24 hours to arrive at the finish by Sunday morning.

NB: Participants will NOT be allowed to run the course. Rest stops will be set up to accommodate a trekking pace for a finishing time approximately 24 hours after commencement.

All your money raised will go towards supporting Blind Veterans UK, however we are proud to once again be partnering with Guide Dogs for this event.

If you have any questions about the event please contact Grace on 020 7616 7959 or email 100Kchallenge@blindveterans.org.uk

Volunteers cheering marathon runners

Would you like to be part of this great event? If so, we would be delighted for you to volunteer to join us at the start, finish or one of the rest stops along the route.

Tasks include cheering and encouraging our participants along the route, helping serve refreshments or handing out medals when they finally reach the finish line, most of them almost 24 hours after they set off! This support is invaluable and will make a huge difference to participants on the day.

You will receive a Blind Veterans UK t-shirt to wear, water and snacks on the day. Shifts will vary throughout the weekend. Interested? Please email fundraising@blindveterans.org.uk with your details and the location you would be interested in volunteering at.
