Upcoming races and events 2020

A list of Centurion qualifying races along with long/ultra distance races and challenge events which should tempt every Centurion (and non-Centurion walkers as well.....)
All Centurion 100 mile races in 2020 have fallen victim to the Coronavirus pandemic and almost all races in 2020 from February through to September have been cancelled.

Some events are beginning to be reinstated in the Netherlands, France, Isle of Man, Guernsey etc, but conditions are attached eg quaratine on return from a trip abroad!
Please do consult your Government regulations regarding entry/exit quarantine conditions.

All is not lost!
Many clubs and race walking organisations have been promoting virtual races.
This includes short distances - 1,2,4,5km races to the long and ultra distance. The ultra distance often means covering a very long distance over a number of days, weeks and even months and all from your own front door!
