Ultra challenge events
"Are you a regular walker and new to endurance events? Perhaps a seasoned trekker looking for testing adventures? Or even a marathon runner wanting to 'up' your distance? Whether it's along magnificent coastal scenery, or in stunning open countryside, there’s an Ultra Challenge for you."
Action for M.E. are an official partner charity of Ultra Challenge, who run a series of challenge events in the UK. There are 25km, 50km and 100km challenges, and you can walk, jog or run any of the routes to raise vital funds and awareness for M.E.
Emma took on the Isle of Wight Challenge in 2021, running 26km from Needles to Chale, and raised a fantastic £871. Emma’s sister Laura has had M.E. since 2018, so she decided to run for Action for M.E.
Emma said: “It was very tough but a wonderful experience!” See the picture below of her at the finish line, after smashing the hilly route along the Isle of Wight’s coast. What a hero!
