2015 Challenges It’s time to look ahead to a year full of many different challenges and experiences! Whether it is a fun run you are looking for, or a trek through the Sahara desert, you’re sure to find one of our events/trips for you! What does 2015 have in store? Along with all our annual events, we are very excited about new ones we are launching this year! On the 8th March we have a brand new event called Step Up! – Mencap! Mencap, in partnership with Land Securities, is offering you the chance to participate in the first vertical challenge event that takes you all the way to the top of 20 Fenchurch St, the City tower with a garden in the sky. There will be three peaks to complete, with your last destination resulting in an amazing view over London accompanied with a glass of bubbly to celebrate your achievement! Parachuting World Record Our Skydives happen throughout the year and it is a perfect way to give yourself a daring challenge and fundraise for a charity of your choice! Our Skydiving World Record day broke the previous years’ on 14th June 2014. Airfields across the country had participants fulfilling their dreams, resulting in over 320 charity skydivers filling the sky! Our next World Record Day will take place on 20th June 2015, we hope to beat this years so do not miss out on your chance to be a part of this in 2015! Fun Runs Our Fun Runs are a fantastic event to get active at your preferred level and also raise money for a charity close to you! First up this year we have The National literacy Trust Where’s Wally Fun Run in Victoria Park on 22nd March and then in May The Superhero Fun Run in Regents Park – both a great day for the family! On the day of each event you are provided with your own costume and can either partake in the 5k or 10k route; you can walk, run or either dance your way around! On the day charities are there which gives you a chance to engage directly with them along with other supporters!
London to Brighton We have events for all levels of fitness and sport! We have our annual London to Brighton Cycle, which can be completed as slow or fast as you like – its not a race! The cycle is 54 miles long and is a fantastic event to meet new people along the way too!
Overseas Our overseas events have two brand new challenges which have been added for all you adventurers; Vietnam to Cambodia Cycle Ride, where you can cruse your way through two amazing countries, experiencing the breath-taking scenery from beautiful temples to dazzling green paddy fields! Or why not climb Mount Toubkal in just 3 days through the Moroccan Atlas Mountains?! London to Paris and 3 Cities Cycle London to Paris is a very popular cycle event and again is a great way of meeting new people. It entails 4 days of cycle, so training for this event is very important! We can set you up with a training plan to get you started and help is always on hand with any training advice! Another popular cycle we have is our 3 Cycle Cities –you begin the 90 mile cycle in London, continuing through Amsterdam and finishing up in Brussels! Its an amazing charity cycle challenge!
