Join Extra Mile on their 500-mile team relay Flanders Challenge around the borderlands of northern France - and fundraise for Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice.

Day 1 

A loop out and back to Metz, incorporating some of the most picturesque roads of the Moselle, the vineyards and forests around Trier in Germany and Luxembourg. 

Day 2

You will head north west following broadly the French/Belgian border to the beautiful city of Valenciennes. Our route will include the large regional wildlife parks of the Ardennes and L’Avesnois.

Day 3

Head north of Valenciennes into the West Flanders region of Belgium to finish in the magnificent historical city of Ypres. We will tour famous areas and WW1 sites around the Salient. Flanders is flat (well mostly!) but has some beautiful roads and villages.

Post-race celebration

Extra Mile have also planned a moving celebratory grand finale gala evening. All participants will also attend the 8pm 'Last Post' ceremony at the Menin Gate before dinner in the stunning historic city centre.
