action challenge

.. and we bring people together through challenge & adventure

New_AC_Logo

Since 1999 we’ve organised inspirational challenge events & adventures in the UK and Worldwide, for individuals to join, and for groups, companies & charities. Take on a challenge just for yourself, or link it to a special cause and fundraise – and so far our events have raised over £90 million for charities. Now is a great time to set new goals, to re-energise, and to get active!

Individuals

Be inspired with like minded adventurers

We have over 40 UK & overseas challenge events that you can sign up to now – ranging from a meandering 25 km Thames Path walk, to conquering a snow capped Himalayan peak. Take on an unforgettable group adventure with full support all the way – and push yourself further! We welcome individuals, couples, or groups of friends & family – and you can self fund, or link your challenge with fundraising for a chosen charity. 

groups & Teams

Unforgettable challenges that bond & build

Few experiences bring a group closer together than an outdoor adventure which challenges comfort zones, builds understanding & resilience, and forges respect & friendships. If you have a small group, you can join one of our 40 or so scheduled events, or if you want something special – we can craft a bespoke itinerary or plan a unique challenge to meet your objectives with your own event.

Corporate Challenges

Motivation. Wellbeing. Engagement. CSR

Energise colleagues, boost wellbeing, engagement & loyalty, and ensure that CSR objectives are on-track. We’ve planned & delivered amazing corporate challenges – from taking Harrods, HSBC, Blackrock, DHL, Citibank to Kilimanjaro’s summit; groups from British Gas & WPP on grand cycling tours; to hundreds of Tesco trekkers relaying the full length of Britain. Whatever challenge your organisation is up for – UK, Europe, overseas, mass participation, or even a company wide ‘virtual event’ – we can make it happen!

Charity Challenges

We can help boost fundraising & loyalty

We deal with nearly 500 UK charities of all sizes, and our challenge events have helped raise over £90 million for good causes. Whether it’s the UK’s biggest & best series of walks & runs with our famous Ultra Challenges, or because we’ve taken over 5,000 trekkers to the summit of Kilimanjaro, or that you want innovation & inspiration for your own bespoke challenge – we have the range of events, the experience, the track record, and the passion to help your charity with a fundraising challenge.

The UK’s best loved & biggest series of walking & running trail challenges –  with 25,000+ adventurers taking part each year and raising over £7 million for over 400 charities. In 2022 we have 14 fantastic events across the country that your charity can promote to your fundraisers & corporate partners.

We have 40+ events & adventures  across UK, Europe, & overseas that your charity can promote to your supporters as amazing fundraising challenges. They’ll get full support all the way, with UK mountain leaders & medics on our tough overseas treks – and you’ll have the confidence of dealing with a first class operator that has over 20 years experience within the charity challenge sector.

Many charities want their own special ‘bespoke’ trip – tailored for their supporters to act as a focal point for a major fundraising initiative – and we’ve organised hundreds of successful, unique, challenges. Whether it’s a trek, cycle, community project, or mass participation event – in the UK or abroad – our Team will deliver the perfect event, which your charity will be proud of, and will inspire your supporters!

‘Covid time’ means that we now have a class leading platform which enables us to run any form of virtual challenge for our clients – whether it’s walking, running, cycling, climbing, swimming, skipping or haircutting – and to bring it all alive via an app interface.  An innovative & engaging virtual challenge could be a great addition to your charity’s fundraising program – and we can deliver it for you.

Overseas Challenge of the Month

THE SAHARAN CHALLENGE

It’s 2 marathon distances over 2 days, with a fantastic route through the lush Draa Valley down to sun baked dunes on the desert edge, with rugged mountain scenery, and sleeping under the stars in our Bedouin style base camp. This 5 day trip has it all – a tough challenge, stunning scenery, luxury camping, sun, full support, and a night in Marrakech. An unforgettable Moroccan adventure with some welcome sun!

UK Challenge of the Month

EASTER 50 CHALLENGE

The first Ultra Challenge of 2022. From a Windsor Racecourse basecamp, you can Walk, Jog, or Run 50 km or 25 km through the Great Park with fantastic Castle views, along the historic Thames Path, and enjoy some wonderful surrounding countryside. You’ll get a few Easter surprises, hot food & drink, a medal & neck buff – and it’s a great opening event to kick off the season, to test those legs, and get in shape! Join as an individual or as a team – do it for yourself or to support a charity.
