Walk it, Jog it, or Run it - a NEW endurance challenge along a historic route. It's 100 km, 50 km, or 25 km on the Grand Union Canal towpath, a 'hidden green corridor' that winds its way from the heart of London out towards the Chilterns. The scenery will surprise you – it's the Capital's best kept secret; the Challenge will inspire you - it's London's Great Escape!

Most will walk it at their own pace, quite a few will jog parts, and some will run the full 100 km ultra-marathon style!  A test of stamina & determination, but with some training & our on-event support and hospitality, it’s achievable!
