Sprinters are born, endurance athletes are made
 
If you're not a natural-born sprinter, take comfort in the fact that genetics are less important for endurance events, which can be achieved by most with proper training & conditioning.

Great news if you're tempted to reach a landmark distance in 2018 - such as a marathon or ultra walk.

Get the prize of achieving your dream distance on these amazing UK challenges, but don't forget to take time to look around, enjoy the change of scene and experience the world - that's what it's all about!
