Ultra Challenge Series

We’re delighted to partner with Action Challenge – providing you access to their Ultra Challenge Series, the UK’s largest series of mass-participation endurance events.

The 2023 series provides fundraisers of all ages and abilities with the opportunity to walk, jog, or run distances of 25km to 100km, in some of the most iconic and spectacular locations in the UK.

From the Peak District and Yorkshire, down to the South Coast, and across the water to the Isle of Wight – there is a challenge to suit everyone, everywhere.

You can now support Missing People, and we’d love you to get involved.

Good luck!
