How to sign up to support Overcoming MS

If you’re ready to sign up or want more information, visit the Ultra Challenge Series website to search for an event. During the registration process, you’ll be able to choose whether you want to self-fund or raise a minimum sponsorship. Then you can select Overcoming MS as your chosen charity and start fundraising! You will find Overcoming MS under the ‘Medical’ section of charities when you get to this step of the sign up process.

Once you’ve signed up, we recommend you create a Just Giving page and share it with your friends and family to kick start your fundraising. Follow the instructions you receive from your Ultra Challenge Series welcome email when you sign up to a challenge, to help you get started. Don’t forget to let us know when you’ve signed up to an event if you choose to self-fund, so we can still follow your progress and support you along the way to your completing your challenge!

2023 Ultra Challenges

You can walk, jog or run all of the Ultra Challenges in 2023.

There’s an Ultra Challenge for everyone to push themselves further, with 17 events to choose from ranging from scenic coastal paths, lakesides, well-trodden footpaths & some tough hills. There are multiple distance options, including 10k events, half marathon, full marathon and tough ‘continuous’ 100km challenges or a 2 day ‘Daylight’ 100km option with camping halfway.

Your entry includes a range of free food & drink at regular rest stops, and support from medics, marshals and massage teams. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a special medal to celebrate your achievement. Sign up as an individual or with a team & commit to fundraise for us.
