A Twisted challenge…

We’re inviting you to join our Ambassador Sean Conway as he runs 15 marathons in 15 days in all 15 of the UK’s National Parks

Starting on 4th June, you can join in for a marathon or just for a mile and team Twisted will be present during both of the Yorkshire days (8th - 9th June), but who else will join him and Colonel Mustard?

Sean said “Starting on the 4th June 2021 up in the Cairngorms I will run a marathon a day in each of the UK national parks. We are so incredibly lucky to live on such a beautiful island and I want to share how rich and diverse it is, and how important it is to look after it as more of us will be exploring closer to home this year. I’d love for you to come and run with me. Most routes involve laps so you don’t need to run a full marathon, just come and have a day on the trails to spur me on. See below for details of each days marathon”

Please note that you will need to be entirely self sufficient, there is no support crew.
