The Everest Challenge - Challenge yourself to climb Mount Everest in 12 weeks!

Registration fee: £13 

Have you ever wanted to climb Mount Everest? Do you like the sound of reaching 8,848m above sea level, the highest point on Earth, at an altitude where humans are not designed to survive and where aeroplanes cruise? That sounds very dangerous, expensive and difficult to do in line with social distancing....

But we have a solution – a big challenge for Lockdown 2020. Can you climb the equivalent of Mount Everest in 12 weeks? In this challenge, you can go out to the hills on your daily exercise or simply tackle the stairs a couple of times every day..... achieve 8,848m of elevation gain before the end isolation, and this well earned medal can be yours!

Walk or run the Inca Trail!

Registration fee: £13 Image shows a medal with an Incan symbol of a sun engraved into it

The Inca Trail is a world famous high altitude trail through Peru, starting at what is known as Kilometre 82 and culminating 25 miles later at Machu Pichu – The Lost City of the Incas. Famous for gold and the stone cities they built, the Incas were an ancient civilisation who existed in the 15th and 16th centuries – the Inca Trail traces their footsteps through the high peaks of the Andes Mountains.

We have taken inspiration from the Inca gold, stone and the Inca cross to create the amazing medal for our latest event – The Inca Trail. So if you would like to get your hands on one of these Inca treasures, run or walk 25 miles. You can complete the distance in one or as many efforts as you choose. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do it at high altitude… but if you do we’d recommend getting a group of Porters to carry you!
