CATHERINE OF ARAGON
98 MILES OF DISMISSAL
Stay motivated with the first of Secret London Runs' six Henry VIII themed monthly mileage challenges. Starting off with Catherine of Aragon, you'll follow in the footsteps of each of Henry's Tudor queens in an important journey that they took during their lifetime.
HOW IT WORKS
Over 1 month, 2 months or 3 months, run or walk 98 miles, uploading each activity to the Let's Do This platform as you complete it. This means that you too will virtually make this historic journey, a perfect way to stay motivated and enjoy the history from a fascinating time in this country's past.
We'll move you along the route map each week so you can check your progress against other participants. And you'll also receive a certificate by email when you finish the challenge.
As well as a beautiful and unique (optional) medal, you'll also get a podcast to tell you more about the journey that you're making and postcards from Catherine about the important places you visit and stay along the way.
You'll be following the 98-mile journey Catherine of Aragon took after she was dismissed as Queen by Henry VIII from More Castle to Kimbolton Castle.
We hear a lot about Catherine during her time as Queen and Anne Boleyn arrival at her court, but little about the turbulent years when she was banished. - we're very excited to tell the tale of her final years.

FANTASTIC VIRTUAL EVENTS
"I did the Virtual Gin Run in June and had a blast. I love the very supportive community and it was so much fun to see all the other finisher pics. Never thought that doing virtual events could be that much fun."

MOTIVATIONAL COMMUNITY OF SECRET LONDON RUNNERS
"Since lockdown for COVID-19 started in March 2020 in the UK, I feared for my exercise options. Secret London Runs has stepped up to the challenge to engage and challenge the community. I’ve taken part in several virtual themed 5k and 10k runs, which are well organized with medals and gear sent via the post, and a fantastic Facebook group to share pics and stories."
