Extreme Energy and Sealskinz are delighted to announce the 7th Druids Challenge, a multi-stage race along the oldest roadway in the UK, dating back to 3000BC. The route takes you 84 miles from Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire to Swindon in Wiltshire over three days, with two overnight stops in Watlington and Wantage.

This event will suit those who want a new challenge, people looking for an alternative to running marathons, those training for events like the Marathon des Sables, the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc or anyone who loves seeing the beautiful English countryside. The “Ridgeway” is a National Trail and has excellent markings in the form of signposts or post discs. In addition, you will be given a “Route Card” which is designed to help on any tricky sections, to provide information on any route changes and to indicate where the checkpoints are. The event is supported by a course manager to maintain event safety and to manage any serious incidents. A fully qualified medical crew are also in attendance.

Date: 11th-13th November 2016
