Thank you for your interest in Go Beyond Challenge events

We love what we do and we never take it for granted. We work hard to put on amazing events for our running friends in Northants, the UK and beyond.

We want you to think of us when you’re looking for your next athletic adventure. Perhaps because the event was amazing, or the friends, or the organisation. Whichever it was,  we hope to see you soon.

More about Go Beyond Challenge


We are very aware that ultramarathon events are often dominated by men, with a much smaller percentage of women making it to the start line.  At Go Beyond Challenge we are striving to reduce the gender gap, encouraging more women to take part in long distance running. Read  how we are encouraging greater female participation by removing barriers to entry
