WORKING WITH YOU

CORPORATE GROUPS

We have ideal events for your team!

2022 is the time to get colleagues in shape as a re-energised, motivated team! We deliver high quality outdoor events for many UK companies, and whether your organisation wants a mass engagement event for the wellbeing of thousands of employees, an unforgettable challenge for a group of achievers, or a company-wide charity fundraising initiative – we have an event for you – and we’ll tailor it to meet your objectives, match your values, and leave a lasting impact.

For 20 years we’ve organised challenge events in the UK, Europe, and Worldwide for groups, companies, and charities – and our events have helped to raise over £90 million for UK charities. We’ve devised & delivered some of the best corporate challenges for many top UK companies – with Tesco, British Gas, Marks & Spencer, Harrods, DHL, Blackrock, HSBC, PWC, Citibank, Dell, and Centrica being just some which have trusted us to stage world class events for their colleagues & teams.

So whether it’s a group of hikers bonding on one of our famous UK Ultra Challenge events, a bespoke multi day challenge that can really test & develop a leadership team, or even a mass engagement ‘virtual’ challenge to connect all your offices & people wherever they sit in your organisation – perhaps linked with fundraising for your special charity – we’ll craft the ideal event!

Bespoke packages

Tailored for your company

Unlike most event organisers, we have a full toolkit available to ensure that your challenge event will genuinely work for your company. Our experienced team will lead the way managing the development of your brief, handling any administration, creating registration platforms, building a bespoke challenge website to help drive recruitment, and a tailored App based participant communications journey. We also conduct the route & risk planning stages – and then full operational delivery of the event.

Our flagship mass participation challenges, with 14 events across UK each year, 30,000 or so participants tackling 25 km, 50 km, or even 100 km on foot whilst fundraising over £7 million for our charity partners. Many corporate clients have teams of all sizes taking part, some with extra hospitality packages, and all getting a top quality, accessible, risk free, great value event – without the hassle of organising their own!

If you want something unique, and shaped for your company from the outset – whether it’s hiking, running, cycling, swimming or a mix – in the UK, Europe, or overseas – for as few as 15 to a thousand colleagues – we’ve planned & operated hundreds of events for our clients, and understand the detail & energy needed to deliver low risk, great value, and unforgettable experiences!

We can create a Challenge App, or website, for a Bespoke Challenge, which houses all the info about the event, and will carry your company branding, and makes the whole participnt admin process & communication journey efficient and professional.

2020 ‘lockdowns’ enabled us to develop a class leading platform for operating any ‘Virtual Challenge’ – and the options are as good as your imagination! It could be individuals or teams, walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, head shaving, or whatever – with single offices or worldwide locations from 100 to 50,000 participants – and with a challenge ‘app’ to bring it all alive!

Virtual challenges are a fantastic and flexible way to engage large audiences – including suppliers & customers alongside colleagues. If paired with a parallel centrepiece ‘real physical’ event – there’s now an unbeatable ‘hybrid’ model available to really capture the imagination of colleagues!

We deal directly with over 500 UK charities – including all the major ones, and we fully understand how the sector operates – what works well as a fundraising challenge and what doesn’t – and how to go about getting all the details right first time.

BESPOKE VIRTUAL CHALLENGE

An electric van was driven the length of Britian – Lands End to John O’Groats – visiting Centrica offices enroute, and teams of employees mirrored the route ‘virtually’ by clocking up miles walking, jogging, running, or cycling anywhere at anytime during the month.
