100mph Challenge

Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September, 2023

Can we do it this year?!

2022 saw us get in touching distance of our target of 2400 miles of Watchtree in 24 hours – or 100 miles per hour! Everyone can take part in this fun event – all we need you to do is walk, run, push, dog walk, cartwheel (well perhaps not cartwheel, but you get the gist!) a lap or many laps of Watchtree’s perimeter route. The route is two miles long, so every lap completed adds two miles to our total. Last year we were just 48 miles short of our target!  This year we want to smash it!

You DON’T need to be an ultra runner or an ultra walker. We just need people to come and walk, push or run as many laps as they feel comfortable with. You can come to Watchtree as many times as you want in that 24 hour period to log your laps – you don’t have to do them all in one go. In fact, one of our most popular times for people to come was 10pm in the evening!

The final hour of the event will include our weekly trail run, where we hope as many people as possible will join us for a grand finale. The entry price has also been reduced for 2023 to make the event even more accessible – £8.00 for non-members and £6.00 for members – enter your membership code when prompted at booking.

In previous events we have seen people on crutches doing a lap, people with dogs walking and running, lots of lovely little toddlers toddling their lap, families walking and running, prams being pushed and wheelchair users putting their laps in and getting their fill of the Great Outdoors!

New for this year is our Team Competition! Pitch your running club, company or business against the others – let’s see which team can clock up the most miles!  Why not make a fun team building event out of it? All you need to do is add your team name when you enter – then come and give us your miles!  Challenge yourself to achieve a distance or number of laps that is new to you and help us achieve something amazing together!

This is one of our favourite events on the Watchtree calendar – come and take part from 11am on Saturday 16th September to 11am Sunday 17th 2023!
