Challenge yourself in the stunning landscape of the Welsh Border
The Wye Valley provides a stunning setting for this new and testing challenge - with fantastic riverside sections enroute and some tough hills in between with fabulous views! A Saturday morning start in Chepstow and ahead lies 100km of dramatic scenery, the historic Offas Dyke, castles and hill top forts before the finish line, where an overwhelming sense of elation awaits.
Push yourself further in 2018 and help us support a wide range of children, including those with disabilities, children who have been sexually exploited, young carers and young people in care.
