If you’re an amateur athlete but love to push your body to the very limit, you need to head to Buckingham Palace for the start of the Fitbit Fifty Endurance Challenge.The sporting event takes place between Friday 30th September and Sunday 2nd October, where two teams of six people will attempt to run from Buckingham Palace to Edinburgh Castle and back – within fifty hours.The challenge starts with a 10K run from Buckingham Palace to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The two teams will then tackle the cycling legs in a two-up time trial format, with pairs of riders swapping every hour as they journey north through the English countryside.There’s a break from the saddle near Doncaster for the second 10K run, then it’s back on the bikes all the way to Edinburgh, passing through the Yorkshire Dales, the Pennines and Northumberland fells. Teams travel the final 5km to Edinburgh Castle on foot, before retracing the route back to Buckingham Palace.Bear in mind that this challenge is no easy feat, and will require all of your endurance. The organisers estimate that the whole challenge will ‘demand up to 16 hours’’ cycling per person, and let’s not forget the 50km of running. It will push you to your very limit, as you” be performing at full throttle for at least two days.Organised by Human Race, it’s an all-expenses paid event that gives you the chance to be part of a challenge that has never previously been attempted
