Rather pricey but it is for charity - there is a 50 in the Peak District starting in Sheffield on the 31st March - see

You could start with A Coventry Way - 40 miles on footpaths, bridleways etc around Coventry. It's a marked long-distance trail on the local explorer maps and we organise a challenge event every year on the first weekend in September. Everyone welcome!!

No, I don't know of any - the closest to the midlands was the Wye forest 55 held last year but I think it is likely to only be every 3 years.

I would love to organise one, with themed checkpoints for example, chk pt 1 1 in a local balti, chk pt 2 in a chinese, chk pt 3 in a real ale pub, although would people make it round? The midlands has a lot to offer, with lots of potential for a long walk stretching over the sandwell valley, barr beacon, through sutton park and over towards lichfield, and would be great to get local communities involved, but what a lot of planning......
