In over 20 years of Charity Challenge, one of the most exciting things we’ve done was launching the UK challenge series. Since the series was launched, UK challenges have grown exponentially in popularity. The nation has learnt that we do not always need to hop on a plane for an amazing adventure!
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. The UK & Ireland have so much to offer; a wide variety of gorgeous scenery, and plenty of tough hills and mountains to get your heart rate up and leg muscles burning!
The team at Charity Challenge have being working hard on numerous projects to help charities and supporters through this unsettling time. After the very successful launch of our Winter Season 2020/2021 UK Challenges we are very excited to launch to our NEW UK & Ireland 2021 challenges.
Get ready to explore more ways to push yourself to the limit, experience the challenge of a lifetime, and visit some exciting new destinations, whilst raising vital funds for a cause you are passionate about.
