Welcome to our new website, 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 next 100 miles
Race walking events were suspended in March 2020 but are now gradually being resumed and we hope we will be able to stage a 100 mile track race at Southend in early August. As the foreseeable future remains uncertain we cannot give definite confirmation now so please check this website for updates.
Adhering to the Government guidelines current at the time will be a mandatory requirement for everybody attending – walkers, supporters, organisers, officials and spectators – so the event may be slightly different to those held previously but we are committed to providing everybody the opportunity to take part in this unique race.
If you do not wish to walk you are welcome to help with the event and encourage others. More information about Centurion races under “Future Events”.
