VIRTUAL RUNNING CHALLENGE
Live now - Open until the end of 2024
NB: This entry does not include a medal.
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.
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.
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.
By purchasing entry to our Catherine Howard virtual challenge, you are accepting our Refund Policy and Event Waiver, displayed on this product page.

We want you to have fun at our events, but we also want you to take care of yourself and others whilst out running or walking.
