About The Event

This event has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. More information to follow.

Event Dates Saturday 3rd October – Sunday 4th October.

It’s the 10th Anniversary of the Lighthouse Run from John O’ Groats to Lands End!


Are you up for a driving challenge?

Test your navigating skills as you travel across the UK, through picturesque Scottish, English and Welsh landscapes, and raise funds to help support our construction workforce and their families in need.

The challenge begins at John O’ Groats and finishes in Land’s End. Your navigational skills will be well and truly put to the test as you will need to complete the route without the use of a sat-nav!

At the start you will be given a route to the first check point and then at each check point you will be given the next stage of the route, which means you can’t plan ahead – so you really do have to use your brains and initiative to complete the course. Refreshments will also be provided at each check point.

Along the way, there will also be some extra tests to make sure you’re following the correct route. You’ll need to keep an eye out for the answers to two quizzes, including a picture quiz.

You will see some stunning scenery along the way, including parts of the beautiful ‘North Coast 500‘ – voted one of the top five coastal routes in the world.

The challenge will begin in John O’ Groats on Saturday 3rd October and finishes in Land’s End on Sunday 4th October. There will be a celebratory dinner for everyone in the evening with an opportunity to share your tales and experiences followed by an overnight stay.
