How to fund your challenge

This page provides you details of the costs of your challenge.

The costs below are per person.

This is a self funded challenge that costs £5,175 to join.

The costs cover ground-only expenditure. This means you will need to organise travel to arrive at the starting point of the itinerary in the host country and to return home at the end of the challenge. You will be provided with details of where and when to arrive and depart but please do budget for the appropriate travel arrangements.

Pay a registration fee of £500 when you book.

£4,675 is due 10 weeks before your challenge along with confirmed flight booking details.

We are asking participants to raise a minimum of £5,000 for Borne’s ground-breaking research.
