Running Challenges – by Girls on Hills cofounder Keri Wallace – is a guide to 100 UK running routes of an increasing level of difficulty.

The routes include marked trails, race routes, unmarked trails, big rounds and well-known challenges which gradually become more testing in terms of distance, elevation and level of self-reliance required. The challenges have been selected so that wherever you live, there are enough routes of an increasing level within a short journey away.

The challenges are devised so that there is something for almost every runner – beginning at a low level, for those who already do some running and are looking to step it up, such as Cat Bells or Hampstead Heath, and proceeding to more advanced challenges, such as the Charlie Ramsey Round, that many find inspiring.

The book is designed so that you can tick off the challenges as you go and to be accessible so you can judge your level and progression based on which number out of the 100 challenges you are up to.
