The Great Glencoe Challenge 2nd July 2016 - Glencoe, Scotland
Glencoe Challenge

Technically termed as a ‘Trekathon’ – this challenge really is quite a trek with 26.2 miles worth of glorious Glencoe scenery that takes you right to the foot of Ben Nevis; a feat that even Seb Coe would be proud of.

Take on Scotland’s toughest trek this summer and triumph over the 4500ft ascent as well as the perilous ‘Devil’s Staircase’ all in under 12 hours. If you’re still fighting fit by the end of it you also have the chance to conquer the mighty Ben Nevis itself.

Ptarmigan Events have over 14+ years of experience organising outdoor challenge events so you’ll be in safe hands. They also promise “mud, sweat & beers” so that should allay any fears.

Alps Mont Blanc Trek 15th-19th June and 7th-11th September

MontBlanc

This awe-inspiring charity trek covers 65km through the gorgeous Mont Blanc region of the Alps.  Only five days in total, this challenge is ideal for those with less time to take away from home. You will trek through 3 countries in 3 days and experience the beauty that lies within the Alps mountain range, all just under 2 hours away from the UK!

This trek will certainly be tough, after all, you do have a mountain to climb. But the pleasure of seeing some of the most spectacular views Europe has to offer - from stunning cliffs, to gorgeous waterfalls running from glaciers - will make it all worthwhile.

Great Wall of China 2016 7th-15th May and 15th-23rd October

GreatWallofChina

Step up to the challenge and don’t miss this chance to behold a true wonder of the world!

Stretching for 6,000km, snaking its way across mountains, valleys and zig zagging its way across China - the justifiably world renowned Great Wall is one of the best charity treks out there. Over 5 days you will get to travel along the historic battlements and continue well off the tourist trail to achieve the perfect backdrop to your fundraising trek. You’ll also get the opportunity to become a part of history as each member of the group will have the chance to place a brick on a newly restored section along the way. After the hard work is over there will be a celebratory dinner (the best Chinese food you’ve ever had) and you’ll also have some free time to explore Beijing, so you don’t miss out on the legendary Forbidden City!

Due to the amount of steps on the journey, the steepness and sheer scale of the Great Wall makes this a demanding charity challenge. However, with training and dedication there’s no reason not to step up to the challenge and behold a true wonder of the world.

Kilimanjaro Trek - 16 Jun 2016 - 26 Jun 2016 & 18 Aug 2016 - 28 Aug 2016
Eleanor Chadwick Kilimanjaro

Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world and also the highest mountain on the African continent at 5896m, is a magnet for trekkers and climbers the world over and one of the most impressive treks charity events can offer. Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains; huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit, spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally on this, the mightiest of charity challenges.

This is a tough trek in the world of charity challenge events and takes us along the beautiful Machame route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the south, allowing gradual acclimatisation to the altitude and an excellent chance of reaching the summit. Our trek for charity takes us through dense tropical rainforest, moorland and scree until we reach Uhuru Peak, the highest point. This is one of the most challenging charity treks at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world for simply breathtaking views. A tough but spectacularly rewarding route. On reaching the summit you will feel a sense of overwhelming achievement, a truly unforgettable charity challenge.
