For 2017 we are adding the five Ultra Challenges - You Can Join our Stable of Champions
Take on an Ultra Challenge and raise funds for The Racehorse Sanctuary.
The excitement of the Cheltenham Festival, the anticipation of the Aintree Grand National, and the dreams of the new flat season with its English Classics, remind us of the courage and athletic prowess of the thoroughbred horse. They can’t all be winners …… but they spend their racing lives trying. For which they deserve a happy and fulfilled life after racing.
The Racehorse Sanctuary is a charity dedicated to providing a safety net for those thoroughbreds, who might otherwise miss out on their deserts, by rehabilitating and rehoming them. With the help of Peter O’Sullevan High Dependency Unit we can be more confident in dealing with the issues faced by horses with more difficult needs, ensuring they too can have a safe future, even the few to whom we have to offer sanctuary for life.
If a sporting challenge turn you on, why not tackle one or more of five Ultra Challenges in 2017, and raise funds for the work of the Sanctuary. You can walk, jog or run over 25km, 50km or 100km. The five exciting challenges are:
- The Isle of Wight Challenge 29-30 April 2017
- The London2Brighton Challenge 27-28 May 2017
- The Cotswolds Way Challenge 1-2 July 2017
- The South Coast Challenge 26-27 August 2017
- The Thames Path Challenge 9-10 September 2017
