Ending homelessness, rebuilding lives

South West 50 Challenge

Raise vital funds as you walk, jog or run through the stunning south west countryside. 

About the event

The stunning South West challenge begins in the shadow of the impressive Dunster Castle Basecamp, while the start of the route commences at Minehead, leading into the famous 630 mile coastal path. Pick and choose from a 50km or 25km option, plus a family friendly 10k event – along with camping options and hospitality at basecamp across the weekend.

You’ll get full support and hospitality. Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals, and a massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fixx, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement. 

As we are an official charity partner, you can sign up and get 25% off the standard charity sponsorship fee!
