Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones
(£425.00 minimum sponsorship)
Walk, jog or run from the Chilterns to the North Wessex Downs for Bloodwise and help beat blood cancer
Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones is a 100k challenge which sees participants walk, jog or run along the Ridgeway, Britain's oldest path. The route begins in the Chilterns and takes trekkers past an iron age fort and through the scenic countryside of the North Wessex Downs. The finish line is at the Avebury stone circle, a Neolithic henge monument and one of the most famous prehistoric landmarks in Britain.
Participants can opt to take the 100k challenge in one go or can alternatively split the trek over two days and camp overnight.
