Thank you so much for this. Now I see that this challenge walk is only 90ml away from my place, which really makes a difference.

It's the postcode that's wrong. LL16 is near Denbigh in North Wales. The event postcode should be LE16. Presumably the LDWA software determines its 100 mile radius using the grid reference, not the postcode.

Since I can't remove this post, here is Simon's reply:
The distance we use is a straight line (as the crow files) and not Sat Nav type distance which google maps uses.

On the events page I go:
event type: challenge
from 27/04 to 28/04
within 100ml of SW3 3TH
result: 13th Valleys & Views which starts from LL16 8QE

On Google maps, the distance between SW3 3TH and LL16 8QE is 244ml
