Centurions around the world...
There are several countries (and now continents!) which now hold their own 100 mile walks and have formed their own Centurion associations for those athletes who complete 100 miles within 24 hours in a judged race.
The latest addition to the "family" is Africa which held their inaugral race in October 2016. So the complete "family" looks like this:
- Continental Centurions
- Malaysia *
- New Zealand
* Malaysia no longer hosts a 100 mile race.
Many Centurions take the opportunity to qualify as a Centurion in each country.
To date (2019) Sandra Brown has managed to gain a Centurion number in all the Centurion overseas races. Congratulations!

Sandra Brown is the only walker who has seven centurion titles in her name. Since the race in Malaysia is no longer organised, only those who already have completed this race can equal Sandra's achievement.
After New Zealand, only Jill Green, Caroline Mestdagh, Rudy Schoors and Rob Robertson have six overseas Centurion completions.
April 2019: Marco Bloemerts is now the first Dutch walker to join all six active Centurion Clubs.
Gertrude Achterberg has now joined 5 clubs.
Kim Janssens and Martin Vos move up to 3 Centurion clubs
Centurion Vereniging Nederland - Dutch Centurion Association (CVN)
The Centurion Vereniging Nederland (C.V.N.) was founded on the 12th February 1966 and it's aim is to stay in contact with each other and to represent the Dutch and Belgian contingent of Centurions.
The CVN is made up of Dutch and Belgian walkers who have qualified as British Centurions (and not to be confused with the Continental Centurions)
