The 97th 100 mile race is dedicated to Ken Munro C370.  Ken was a true stalwart of our sport as a competitor and  official.

Ken became a Centurion in Essex when completing the 1965 Metropolitan Police 10 x 10 Miles race at Chigwell clocking 20.59.55, a course regarded as  one of the tougher races at which to qualify.

A long-serving Cambridge Harrier, he was an officer of the RWA Northern Area and served as Centurions’ Honorary Secretary and Merchandising Officer. He was a great supporter and adviser of long distance events.

The race will be held  Saturday 20th/Sunday 21st August 2022 on the cycle circuit at Middlesbrough Sports Village (MSV), TS4 3AE. We very much look forward to welcoming walkers from the UK and overseas.

The race will start at 12 noon on Saturday 20th August 2022.

Entries are now closed at Entry Central.

39 walkers representing 10 nationalities have entered to date and we hope this encourages more entries.  If you are unable to race we welcome offers to help and support on the day or to simply come along and enjoy meeting friends.
