Race to the stones is a UK based Ultra trail marathon that takes place over 2 days in July. Have you got what it takes?
This ultra trail marathon takes place over two days this summer and has achieved many awards over the years - most recently from the Running Awards 2018.
You can choose to run it, jog it or walk it. We designed the event to suit everyone from elite runners to bold fundraisers.
The Ridgeway, described as Britain’s oldest road, runs from the Chilterns to the North Wessex Downs. Experience some of the UK’s most breathtaking scenery and finish next to the 5,000-year-old stone circle at Avebury.

Camping halfway gives you some well-deserved rest; choose between legendary basecamp in tents with meals, showers and a massage or luxury glamping in a fully-furnished Bell Tent with Egyptian cotton linens.
Sleep is for wimps, right? Keep going through the night and claim the glory of the finish line sooner.
Unlike some self sufficient ultra marathons we look after everything so you just need to concentrate on enjoying the view as you get to the finish line. From route signage, to food and medical provisions – we’ve got it covered!
"Could not fault the support on the walk...an amazing and positive team. Excellent, well-stocked pit stops which were well spaced out and appeared like an oasis in the desert. You are told how far you have come through regular signage along the route.. if you want a challenge this is the one to go for." - Emma Brodie
"This was my first ultra and i'm not one for commenting on races but everyone involved from the organisers to the supporters have to be commended. It was an amazing event and the volunteers at the pitstops were brilliant and made the event that much more enjoyble. Thank you so much for making it such a brilliant and memorable experience. Massive thumbs up." - Graham Fisher

Every childhood is worth fighting for.
Together we can help children who’ve been abused to rebuild their lives. Together we can protect children at risk. And, together, we can find the best ways of preventing child abuse from ever happening.
We change the law. We visit schools across the country, helping children understand what abuse is. And, through our Childline service, we give young people a voice when no one else will listen.
But all this is only possible with your support.
Every pound raised, every petition you sign, every minute of your time, will help make sure we can fight for every childhood.
