This  website captures and celebrates the achievement of walkers who have completed walking 100 miles within 24 hours in a judged race in Great Britain.

It is designed to support all existing and aspiring Centurions, attract interest from the wider athletic community and encourage race walking.  We hope you find it enjoyable and informative.

What is a Centurion?

“A Centurion is one who has walked 100 miles within 24 hours in a competition held under Race Walking Association (RWA) and UKAthletics rules in Great Britain”

We welcome and encourage walkers from all backgrounds and countries.  Races are generally held annually at various locations around the country.  Most are held on the road but some are on an athletic track.

The record of those who were successful began in 1911 and since then a total of 1209 walkers have qualified.

The next 100 miles 20th – 21st August 2022

We are pleased to announce that the next Centurion-qualifying race will be held  on the Middlesbrough Sports Village Cycle Circuit, TS4 3AE. Entries are now open at Entry Central and further details will follow shortly.  We very much look forward to seeing everybody again next year.
