How is the group managed?

Our maximum group size for this challenge is 30. Charity Challenge operates all of it’s challenges as team events. This challenge is not run as an individual event so please come prepared to help other members of the team. As all of our challenges have a strong ‘charity fundraising’ aspect then this is a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded people who have incredible stories to tell. 

Depending on the final number of people we may need to have separate groups doing the activities at different times.

Leadership

You will be accompanied by fully qualified challenge leaders who are all first aid trained. Our leaders are the very best, and many of them lead on our overseas challenges. They have a broad range of backgrounds and experiences and are there to keep everyone safe and happy. We always ask all of our participants to respect any decision that any of the leaders has to make.

For the cycle and kayak sections of this challenge you will be instructed by qualified cycle and kayak leaders. For the trek your leaders will all hold a mountain leader qualification.

Clothing and equipment

Equipment of good quality and durability could make the difference between a fantastic challenge experience and an uncomfortable one. For this challenge, you may wish to change kit between each activity. You will be able to leave any extra equipment in the support van.

A full kit list for this challenge can be found here.

Once you book you will have access to kit discounts with our partners The Outdoor Shop, Outdoor Hire and Cotswold Outdoor.

Trek Section: The trek takes place in a remote and mountainous environment, away from roads and immediate access to vehicle evacuation. It is therefore extremely important that you come prepared with the correct kit for this challenge. Please ensure that your waterproof jacket is able to keep you dry when subjected to rain for several hours at a time, and that you also have waterproof trousers as legs get just as wet as tops. Footwear should also be waterproof and most importantly should have good grip. Sports trainers are not appropriate for the terrain of this challenge. We also ask you to ensure that you bring with you additional warm layers, along with hat and gloves. It is important to remember that the weather on the summit can often be considerably different to the weather at the bottom.

Bike Section:  We would recommend a pair of cycling shorts or trousers to wear for this section. You will have the opportunity to change into them before completing this section. Whilst you are welcome to take your day-sack on the bike with you, we would recommend that you keep this in the support van to make the bike section more comfortable. Because your bikes are being hired we cannot guarantee that they will be compatible with cycling shoes and so we recommend that you prepare to wear trainers for cycling in.

Kayak Section: You do not need to have a wetsuit or swimming costume for this section. Most people complete this part of the challenge wearing the same clothes that they used for the cycle section. However, if you wish to bring separate clothes for this section then you will have the opportunity to change into them before undertaking this section of the challenge. You will need to wear shoes or trainers whilst in the kayaks, so you may wish to consider bringing along a spare pair of old trainers.

After you have completed the kayak section you will still be required to cycle the final 5km back to the accommodation in Killarney.

Please be aware that because of the environment that this challenge takes place in our leaders may ask to see the vital parts of your kit during the initial briefing. Participants found without kit marked as essential on the kit list may not be allowed to take part in the challenge.

Training

This challenge will have you biking, kayaking and hiking around the stunning McGillycuddy Reeks, therefore requiring a good level of fitness.

The ideal training for this challenge is, naturally, hill walking and cycling. If you do not have the luxury of living near the hills, then the stairs at home (or an office block) are a great place to start. Most training should be part of an ongoing lifestyle, but if this is not the case then you should begin training 2-4 months prior to the challenge and gradually build up as suggested. Remember to use the walking boots that you will be wearing on the challenge in order to get them worn in and take the daysack that you will be using during the challenge. There is no substitute for walking in the hills so try if possible, to get out on a weekend and train in an area with steep hills. You should progress to training with your boots on from week 4 at the latest, but preferably from week 1. The more you exercise before the expedition, the more you will get out of it. Also see your Charity Challenge Fitness Training notes.

Your training should also include some cycle training, preferably including some hills. The cycling section of this challenge takes place on paved country lanes, and you should gear your training to being comfortable on a bike and have experience of cycling up hills.

For the kayaking, no prior experience is necessary, although if you have the opportunity to go to a local kayaking club then this would help you when you arrive for the challenge. Kayaking requires good upper body strength, so if possible, doing some exercises or light weights to build your strength would be advantageous.

Safety

Charity Challenge considers the safety of all of our participants and staff to be a top priority, and as such we have set up Challenge Safe, one of the most advanced and thorough safety management systems in the industry. Challenge Safe formalises our ethos when it comes to safety and brings together the procedures and risk management strategies that we use to audit all aspects of our challenges, from vehicles to accommodation to the challenge activity itself. Your welfare is absolutely paramount!

Here are a couple of important points that you should be aware of:

  • Make sure you have all of the kit listed as essential on the kit list.
  • The Irish weather can be extremely variable, so we recommend that you have two hats and gloves and warm layers to ensure that you always have a dry item to wear on each day.
  • This is a significant physical challenge over a prolonged period of time. Please make sure that your fitness level is suitable to meeting this challenge.
  • Make sure that you take care around the campsite.

Insurance

From the 1st January 2021 the Irish governments agreement around healthcare for UK nationals visiting Ireland is changing. We encourage all participants to make sure that they are aware of these changes by reading the UK government advice here.

We would recommend that you take out comprehensive travel insurance that includes cover for medical treatment and associated costs. Your safety when travelling with Charity Challenge is our main concern, which is why it is a booking condition that you have a suitable travel insurance policy, which covers you for the adventurous nature of your challenge, the activities you are undertaking, and the altitudes. We have chosen to partner with specialist travel insurance providers Campbell Irvine, who offer cover for an extensive number of adventurous activities. Cover is available directly from Campbell Irvine for most European residents and includes cover for emergency medical and repatriation and for your cancellation or curtailment of the challenge. Full details including costs may be found by clicking here.

Weather

As you know, the weather in Ireland can be highly unpredictable and at times erratic, so being prepared is the key! This challenge can run between April and October, and although the summer months of June-August should be, in general, warmer, sunnier and more stable in terms of the weather conditions, we all know that this isn’t always the case! Please check the weather forecasts prior to the challenge but always ensure that you bring with you clothing and equipment suitable for all possible weather conditions. Remember that sunny weather at the bottom of the mountain doesn’t guarantee sunny weather on the top!

Responsible Tourism
