Following the success of the 2021 Virtual GWC we have decided to continue to offer this as an option for those of you who are unable to take part in our Poolewe challenge.  The event is open to anyone of any age or ability - you can simply adapt the challenge to suit your own circumstances. 

Firstly choose your activity – you can walk, run, jog, cycle, swim – or any other form of exercise you prefer.  

Then select your distance – these are equivalent to the usual GWC distances:

25 mile

13 mile

7 mile

3 mile (limited ability)

1.5 mile (limited ability)

You can complete your challenge anytime between 1st July and 31st August 2022 anywhere in the world, entirely at your pace!

Don’t worry if you can’t manage it all in one go – just record your progress and continue as and when you can as long as you complete your target by 31st August 2022.

Advise us when you have reached your goal, with an account of where and when completed and any evidence you have – fitness trackers are ideal but we can accept a written record of your activity.  We also welcome anecdotes, quotes, photos etc. (with your permission for GWC future use).

There will be no race times recorded. Results are impossible to compare unless run on the same course and on the same day. You may wish to record your time for your own personal benefit but this is not essential.

Everyone who completes the challenge will receive our event  medal and t-shirt which will be sent on receipt of your completion confirmation and sponsorship.  Final date for receipt of sponsorship 31st October 2022.

Entry Fee - all distances/activities:

Adults £15

12 - 17 years   £10

Children under 12 free of charge
