Support Us : Wye Valley Challenge

The Wye Valley provides a stunning setting for this new and testing challenge – with fantastic riverside sections enroute and some tough hills in between with fabulous views!

A Saturday morning start in Chepstow and ahead lies 100km (quarter and half distance options also available) of dramatic scenery, the historic Offas Dyke, castles and hill top forts before the finish line, where an overwhelming sense of elation awaits.

Whether you’re a walker and new to endurance events, or a marathon runner looking to up the distance – the journey will be unforgettable.

With some training and determination anyone can conquer the Jurassic Coast so why not get in shape – and join a real challenge in 2018 for the Down’s Syndrome Association.
