Seagrave Wolds Challenge
11th November 2017

Welcome to the Seagrave Wolds Challenge website

2016 was a record year. We raised over £10,000 which went to: Barnardo’s, Seagrave All Saints Church, Rothley & Mountsorrel Heritage Centre, The Royal British Legion, and The Village Hall redecoration and maintenance fund. As usual, all the proceeds from this year’s event will go to support a mixture of local and national charities.

2017 will be our 13th consecutive Challenge. We are winding the clock right back and will be serving up a route similar to one of our very first events. The 16 mile route has not yet been finalised but we hope to be taking in the villages of Wymeswold, Rempston, Prestwold, Burton-on-the-Wolds, Walton-on-the-Wolds. We should get some nice views of the lovely Wolds countryside and, with support from local landowners, getting rare access across private land.

The 2016 event sold out and we’ve held the entry price at last year’s level. To avoid disappointment, you are advised to head to the “How To Enter” page and register early!
