This is a major physical and logistical undertaking, the entire distance is still fairly seldom attempted on foot in one sitting – and rightly therefore constitutes an enormous lifetime achievement for any runner or walker.

We’ve put together a truly stunning 1000 mile, 70, 000 ft elevation adventure that spans the entire length of this great nation, but not as you have ever seen it. Our route has been put together with painstaking precision, encompassing a real ‘runners line,’ largely avoiding busy roads and packing in huge chunks of off-road terrain. It is a swashbuckling tour-de-force through 4000 years of British History and landmarks, taking you on a journey through the very soul of this storied Isle. We have also managed to weave together several of the UK’s most famous and enjoyable long-distance paths, including major sections on the South West Coast Path, Wye Valley Way, Offa’s Dyke, Clyde Walkway, the Great Glen Way and all 95 glorious miles of the West Highland Way.

The entire distance is still fairly seldom attempted on foot in one sitting – and rightly therefore constitutes an enormous lifetime achievement for any runner or walker.

You will need everything you have in the tank and more to get the job done here, both physically and mentally. There are no short-cuts: It is 1000 miles on foot, over 5 weeks and across hill, mountain, moor and valley. There will be no winners: It is all about completion. This is and always has been the Rat Race Way. As such, we will be with you from the minute you sign-up to get you to the start line and beyond. Our package not only features the best event support in the business, but that support commences from the day you sign up as we look to include major training support to ensure you stand the very best possible chance of getting the job done.

Ultimately this will be a journey into yourself as much as across Britain; The Holy Grail of your running goals. With our expert support it’s now very much attainable and you’ve got 2.5 years to get ready.

JOIN US FOR RUN BRITANNIA AND RE-SHAPE THE VERY ESSENCE OF WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF.
