Ultra Challenge

Important Update

In response to the government’s updates regarding COVID-19, Action Challenge (the organisation behind the Ultra Challenge series) have decided to cancel or postpone the following events

  • Easter 50 Challenge – Canceled
  • London 2 Brighton Challenge – Canceled
  • Costswold Way Challenge – Canceled
  • Lake District Challenge – Canceled
  • Isle of Wight Challenge – Postponed
  • Jurassic Coast Challenge – Postponed

If you have already signed-up to one of these events see below for your choice of options;

  • Postponed events
    The Isle of Wight Challenge and Jurassic Coast Challenge will be postponed until later in the year, in late August or September. You can move over to this new date at no cost. Action Challenge will communicate the confirmed new dates once they have them.
  • Deferral to a 2020 event
    You can also switch to any other 2020 from June onwards. These will be processed within 5 – 10 working days. If you have already paid for your place, Action Challenge will issue a credit note for the value of that invoice to be used against the future event fee.
  • Deferral to a 2021 event
    Action Challenge’s 2021 events are not live yet, so these fundraisers will not appear on our reports until you are registered for the new event. Action Challenge will send a summary of fundraisers out to us within 8 weeks of the cancelled event date. If you have already paid for your place, Action Challenge will issue a credit note for the value of that invoice to be used against the future event fee.
  • Cancellation
    If you cancel your place, Action Challenge will be offering refunds of the registration fee you paid, minus a £15 administration fee.

To register your preference please visit https://www.ultrachallenge.com/covid-19-updates – they will have a form for you to fill in from Friday 20th March 2020.

Future Events

Other Ultra Challenge events will be reviewed on the 8 week rolling time-line.
