Take on the tough and tasty 2022 Belvoir Challenge
There is a new registration system this year.
Stiles, cake, hills, cake, mud, cake...The Belvoir Challenge has opened for business with a choice of two distances, generously stocked aid stations and stunning views of the area. Participants will be pushed to their limits on 26 February 2022 in the Vale of Belvoir whilst raising funds for Harby Primary School. .
This event has become a ‘must do’ for many runners and walkers as evidenced by the fact it sells out within hours. The food and drink is a good reason to enter as is the course, which is a mix of road, farmer’s fields, tracks and trails all with a friendly, sociable atmosphere throughout.
It is organised by the Friends of Harby School who fundraise for the school, providing equipment and enabling activities in support of the curriculum for the benefit of the children. The school relies heavily on this event and even more so during the pandemic.
The race is known for its checkpoints and the gastronomic delights that are worthy of a place on the Great British Bake Off! Homemade cakes, chocolate, sandwiches, biscuits and sweets are on the menu along with drinks to keep energy levels topped up especially when navigating claggy sections in the fields.
Participants head back through the village, across the timing mat then into the village hall where hot food and more cake will be waiting for them.
Expect a hard but scenic run or walk, cakes galore and good camaraderie in both distances. Leave the Nike Vaporfly’s at home though...
Note: the new registration platform allows runners/walkers to check in online and arrange to have their bib number sent to them before the event.
