Acerca de Cheddar Gorge Challenge

Breathtaking trail race on the world famous Cheddar Gorge. Expect great views and big climbs! A family day out with events from marathon to 300 m fun run.

Whatever distance you take part in, you are racing one of the toughest events of it’s kind in the south-west. You will do more climbing just getting to the start than you will in most other events (we start at the top of the gorge and let you finish at the bottom). Each event takes in what has been affectionately dubbed the ‘Hell Steps’; a cheeky little flight of steps with a surprise midway up.

Cheddar Gorge Challenge Datos curiosos

The Cheddar Gorge Marathon is a 2 lap course taking in biggest and most beautiful climbs around the Mendip Hills and Cheddar Gorge. Runners will run along valley floors that have been the site of British industry from Roman all the way through to Victorian times; and the 10ft dam walls (of the old lead mining settling pits) which you will negotiate bear testament to this. Also on the course you will see World War II bunkers, breathtaking views over to the Welsh Mountains, conquer the mighty Hell Steps (twice!) and enjoy stunning running along gorge edge.
