VIRTUAL RUNNING CHALLENGE
LIVE NOW - OPEN UNTIL THE END OF 2024
Option to complete the challenge as a team of 2 or 3. Each member needs to sign up individually.
Run, walk, cycle, swim or cross-train 363 miles in the footsteps of a young Anne of Cleves as she journeys from her family home in Dusseldorf, Germany, across the Netherlands, through France and over the English Channel to a very disappointing meeting with her husband-to-be at Rochester.
Every time you complete a walking, running, cycling, swimming or cross-training activity, you'll advance along the virtual map unlocking podcasts and postcards from Anne at milestones along the route.
Earn beautiful bling, stay focused and make your miles more fun. Run, walk, cycle, swim or cross-train the 363 miles, solo or as part of a team of 2 or 3. Choose to complete it in 1, 2, 3, 4 or 6 months and sign up today.
EARN BEAUTIFUL BLING
Celebrate your achievement with a beautiful limited edition Anne of Cleves medal. Exclusively designed for this event, with lots of special touches for history-lovers, this medal is bound to stand out in your collection.
GET THE WHOLE SET
Anne of Cleves' 363 Miles to Wedded Bliss* is the fourth in a series of 6 events dedicated to Henry VIII's Wives. All the medals fit together beautifully to form a set. Do you have what it takes to do them all and earn all 6 plus the Finisher's Coin?
UNRAVEL FASCINATING HISTORY AS YOU GO
The ugly one, right? Wrong! Anne of Cleves was 24 when she was "chosen" to marry a fat, lame 48-year old Henry VIII.
