We’ll pick up Elizabeth’s next journey in 1554, and follow the 20-year old to the Tower of London, where she was imprisoned for treason by her sister, and now Queen of England, Mary. We’ll explore how Elizabeth managed to escape the gallows and retreat to the country under house arrest, and we’ll stay with Elizabeth until, aged 25 years old, she discovered that she was to replace her sister on the throne.

Stay focused and make your miles more fun, unravelling fascinating history as you go. Run, walk and/or cycle the 197 miles and sign up today.
