We are Action Challenge and take groups, individuals, charities and companies on inspirational adventures and challenge events. Our events are usually unforgettable, sometimes life changing, and always rewarding with group camaraderie as important as physical commitment. We've helped to raise over £50 million for charities; take part in one of our challenges and fundraise - or just do it for yourself!
