How does it work?

The Coast of England Virtual Challenge is the ultimate challenge you could possibly do, nearly 3000km around our green and pleasant island.

The challenge begins near the Severn Estuary and starts by tackling the south coast path around Somerset, Devon and the stunning Cornwall. Then heading east across the bottom of the UK, we tackle the mighty Jurassic coast. Following this you’ll then journey towards Southampton, Brighton and finally Dover before venturing to the south east to the Thames Estuary. But it doesn’t stop there! You’ll then travel to the east coast and unto the north Norfolk path heading through small towns such as Sherringham, Wells and Southwell. Once you have tackled this it’s time to head up north, keeping Wales to your right whilst you explore the Yorkshire coast and cities like York and Whitby. The North Cambiran coast is next before heading up to the Scottish border where you’ll venture to Hadrian’s Wall (a mammoth task on its own!) and then back down to the Lake District. Coming back more inland you’ll walk, bike or run to Liverpool before brushing by Wales and taking on the final part of your epic journey by heading to Offa’s Dyke, then through the stunning Forest of Dean back to your starting point.

That concludes your Coast of England Virtual Challenge. Complete the 3000km completely at your own pace, fast or slow, on a bike, or walk, a run or swim. Whatever your leg, it’s completely up to you!

Complete the distance in as many attempts as you like, simply update the entry page with your latest distance and time and the system will look after the rest.

You will even earn performance awards as you complete each milestone!

What do I get?

An awesome medal will be sent out to all who complete the challenge (optional to purchase).

We have even created a great Dynamic Team facility so that you and your friends can monitor each others performance! When you register simply join an existing team, start a new one or choose to track your progress solo.
