Ultra Challenge Series

The Ultra Challenge Series is the UK’s biggest and best series of treks & runs, with 16 events to choose from, ranging from costal paths, lakesides, well-trodden footpaths and tough hills. Choose to walk or run 10 km, 25 km, 50 km, or 100 km, enjoy the great British outdoors, and push yourself further on a high quality inspirational event.

As Battersea are an official challenge partner, you get a 50% discount on the ‘Full Sponsorship’ registration fee when signing up to London Summer Walk, Thames Path Challenge and Thames Bridges Trek, and 25% discount on the ‘Full Sponsorship’ registration fee when signing up to all other Ultra Challenges.

With a challenge for everyone to push themselves further, there’s really no excuse not to join Team Battersea and take on an Ultra Challenge for 2024!

Choose your challenge

Charity Sponsorship - you pay a small registration fee, do lots of fundraising and we cover the cost of your event place! As we are an official charity partner–you get 25% off the standard reg fee when you select our charity on the dropdown.

Mixed Funding - pay half of the event place cost yourself, fundraise a bit less and we pay the balance of the event place cost.

Self Fund - you pay the full cost of the event place-fundraise whatever you want, with no set target or deadline, and there’s no cost at all to the charity!

Please note, there is a cost to Battersea when you sign up. We therefore ask that you commit to raising the fundraising target to ensure that as much of your sponsorship as possible can go towards our vital work helping dogs and cats everywhere.


Remember to select Battersea Dogs & Cats Home as your chosen charity when registering to receive a 25% discount on the 'Full Sponsorship' registration fee.
