VIRTUAL RUNNING CHALLENGE
LIVE NOW - OPEN UNTIL THE END OF 2024
Follow in the footsteps of 19-year-old Catherine Howard as she was seized from her home at Hampton Court and placed under house arrest at Syon House before, eventually, being taken up the Thames on a barge to the Tower of London for her execution.
Every time you complete a walking or running activity, you'll advance along the virtual map unlocking podcasts and postcards from Catherine at milestones along the route.
Earn beautiful bling, stay focused and make your miles more fun. Run or walk the 24 miles. Choose to complete it in 1 or 2 days, or 1, 2 or 3 weeks and sign up today.
EARN BEAUTIFUL BLING
Celebrate your achievement with a beautiful limited edition Catherine Howard 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
Catherine Howard's 24 Miles Until Death Do Us Part is the fifth 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
History paints Catherine Howard as a silly little girl who didn't quite know what she'd got herself into. Alternative histories tend to focus on the sexual abuse she suffered as a child, but very few look at her final 24 miles.
Optional: Add a limited edition Henry VIII's Wives running buff - click here for more info.
