Overview

It's back with a brand new medal design! Runbelievable Challenges are extremely excited to bring back the Black Hugin Challenge with a reboot. You may remember that the Black Hugin was our very first event back in 2021, it "should" have been at Pegwell and "should" have been at night, due to Covid we had to change the location and time. We can now reveal that this event will be under the watchful gaze of the Hugin Viking Ship itself, with our base camp set up under it's shadow! The 'Viking Ship' Hugin is on permanent display on the Pegwell Bay cliff top at Ramsgate, and is a replica Viking Longship. The medal for this event depicts this in all it's glory. You'll start your challenge in sunlight, with sunset easing into twilight ending in complete darkness depending on how long you are running until. If you are planning on running over 2.5 hours, headlamps and torches are essential! Plan A is a 3.28 mile loop starting near to the Hugin Viking ship and heading off down the "slope" towards pegwell nature reserve, you will then do a loop around the nature reserve before heading back up the "slope" past the viking ship along the path until you get to a turning that leads you down to the old hover port you will then cut through a very short trail section before heading back to the start. At this point you can choose whether to head off on another loop or ring the bell and claim your medal and goody bag. The course is subject to change as we do have a couple of variations.
