How Far can you go in 24 hours? Take Part in the ’24 Hour Challenge’ in East Kent!

The next event in the Challenge Hub calendar, famous for its Ultra Marathons races in Kent, is the 24 Hour Challenge which takes place between Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th May.  The 24 Hour Challenge is unsurprisingly an athletic test to see how far you can personally reach in 24 hours…running, jogging or walking how you wish.

The course at Marshside Fishery, Chislet, near Canterbury chosen is a safe 6.55 mile lap which allows competitors the option of dropping out whenever they wish. The route is fully signed and marshaled with first aid and water stations provided.

This year, the Challenge Hub is also allowing Tag Teams to take part in the 24 Hour Challenge.  It also provides an opportunity for those wishing to take part, but want a slightly less daunting experience.  Each team member must complete a minimum of 32.75 miles to qualify for a 24hr 'tag' team medal. Teams of two people to go as far as they can in 24 hours as a ‘tag’ team.

Mike Inkster, Director of Challenge Hub said, ‘The 24 Hour Challenges is not a traditional race. It has a simple purpose: to give individuals the opportunity to take on a challenge that tests both mental and physical fortitude in a safe, well organised environment. There are a lot of people who are looking to push themselves, define themselves...this event does that’.

He added, ‘details about the 24 Hour Challenge are on our website http://www.challengehub.co.uk. If you have any questions regarding this event please contact me at contact@challengehub.co.uk.’
