All over the UK

Join our Bloodwise challenge team and be part of a community of thousands taking on events all around the country, for one common goal: beating blood cancer. Every stride you take and every penny you raise will help us stop people dying, make patients' lives better and stop people getting blood cancer in the first place.

If you're looking for a challenge in 2017 which will really push you and help you to realise your full potential, then take a look at what the Ultra Challenge series has to offer! In the time that Ultra Challenge has been running it has raised over £12 million for UK charities, some of which has helped fund essential research to help beat blood cancer. Next year you could join the thousands of people that make this happen.

There are five events in this series including the popular Thames Path and Isle of Wight Challenges, all of which offer unique experiences in some of the most beautiful parts of the British Isles. These events also offer a variety of distances to undertake and the choice between walking, jogging and running in your event, which make this a great event if you want to personalise an event to meet your needs.
