fancy a challenge

Every mile you run, cycle or swim and every penny you raise will enable communities in rural West Africa to forge bright futures, not just for themselves but future generations too. So what are you waiting for?


Here are some of the challenge events we have available –

Sheffield Half | 14th April 2019 | Target £250

With a city centre start and finish, the event boasts a super scenic route – with stunning views of the Peak District for those who conquer the climb to Ringinglow!

Ride London | 2nd-3rd August 2019 | Target £750

This epic cycling event follows the 2012 Olympic road cycling route out of the Olympic Park, through the city and out to Surrey before heading back to the finish line on The Mall.  There is no other closed-road event like it!
