Target TB is calling for people to take part in one of the biggest off-road marathons in the UK. Formerly the Seven Sisters Marathon, this challenging route has over 3,500ft of ascent – steps, stiles and gates – but also takes in stunning scenery across the South Downs. There are three categories: walker, jogger or runner. A minimum of £1,000 must be raised, with proceeds going to help to prevent tuberculosis: a disease that kills 1.7 million people worldwide each year. Details: www.targettb.org.uk

This new race gives participants 24 hours to run 126km – three marathons – across the vast, wild, remote plateau of the Grand Canyon North Rim. Runners will need to carry their own food and survival equipment, although there’ll be water and medical stations at regular intervals. The route reaches up to 9,000ft above sea level and offers views of towering pine trees punctuated by large open valleys of grass and streams – and of course views over the canyon itself. Afterwards there’ll be a celebratory meal and prize giving in Las Vegas. Details: www.acrossthedivide.com
