The magical Cotswold Way provides a stunning setting for a testing challenge – with some fantastic views en route and tough hills in between! It’s a Saturday morning start from historic Bath’s Royal Crescent, as 2000 adventurers set out on 100km of footpaths & trails – most walking but many jogging and running.

Whether you’re a keen walker and new to endurance events, or a seasoned hiker up for a new adventure (with half and quarter distance options also) there’s a Challenge here for everyone. You’ll get full support & hospitality all the way to your finish line – where an amazing sense of achievement & celebration awaits. Join PCRC for a real challenge in 2020!

Why take on the Challenge for PCRC?

At PCRC, we focus on researching advanced prostate cancer. This is because prostate cancer is treatable when it is confined to the prostate, but once it spreads to other parts of the body, it becomes incurable and dangerous. We urgently need better treatments for men with this life-threatening disease, and we can only do that by funding excellent, ground-breaking research. Every pound that you raise will help us to achieve our vision of a better future for anyone impacted by prostate cancer. You can help us use science to turn hope into reality.
