Charity Challenge are very pleased to announce the launch of our 2022 UK challenge dates for our trek, cycle and triple challenge series. We are blessed to have some of the most spectacular National Parks, UNESCO World Heritage Sites coastal walks and trekking trails right on our doorstep. Whether you are a challenge veteran or this is your first time taking on a Charity Challenge we have something for everyone.
There are three difficulty levels:
- Challenging: A “challenging” trip will test someone who is relatively fit and has a spirit of adventure. You may have had some previous experience, but this is not necessary as long as the correct training is undertaken. You will be physically tested but the terrain is often on well-established routes.
- Tough: A “tough” trip should be undertaken by someone with previous experience and interest in the activity – whether biking or trekking. A tough challenge will test you both physically and mentally. Both cycle and treks will be hilly, and training is essential. On a UK “tough” challenge, you should expect 10+ hours of exertion over demanding terrain.
- Extreme: Extreme challenges will involve a great deal of endurance. These trips are not to be taken lightly. They are usually undertaken by someone with previous experience in a mountain setting, but who wants to take their experience to the next level physically and mentally. Training is essential.
