Race to the Stones
Registration has now closed but if you're still interested, get in touch and we'll let you know if a similar event comes up in the future.

Will you walk 100km so that the remote people we serve don't have to?

Fancy combining some stunning scenery, an ultra-challenge and probably a blister or two? Ok definitely a blister or two! Take on the challenge of 100km on foot along the oldest path in Britain.

Race to the Stones, is a fully supported 48-hour event. Whether you decide to run it or walk it, you will be going across the Ridgeway, the oldest path in the UK. Lined with Bronze Age hill forts, Neolithic burial chambers and Roman river crossings, it culminates in the largest Neolithic stone circle in Europe at Avebury.

And even better, this fundraiser will help the world's most isolated people to receive the help and hope they need. By fundraising for MAF, you will enable our planes to fly for 1,500 different churches, missions and NGOs, bringing healthcare, relief, Bibles and development to hundreds of remote communities.

Bite-size facts:
