About this event

Trek on the serendipity island of Sri Lanka and raise funds for Children with Cancer UK on our Britain V Cancer trek.

Wandering through rolling rice fields and tropical farms, climbing the ancient Sigiriya rock, meditating with a monk and ending at the very special Elephant Transit Home, initiated by the Born Free Foundation, this challenge gives you incredible insight into the friendly Sri Lankan culture and the lifestyle of its locals.

It may sound peaceful, but your legs won’t be sleeping by day, as we trek for five days straight, from Dambulla in the heart of the vegetable farming region in the dryer side of the country to the Bandarawela Buddhist temple, nestled in the misty South.

We spend the last day of our adventure relaxing at one of southern Sri Lanka’s paradise beaches in the exquisite, small town of Hikkaduwa. 

Places for this once in a life time Britain V Cancer challenge are likely to go ridiculously fast so please register soon to secure your place.

Have you and your team got what it takes to conquer the Snowdonia Challenge?

Experience the beautiful Snowdonia National Park on this amazing one-day team event, cycling 40 miles, summitting Snowdon and canoeing Llyn Gwynant.

Kicking off from our event base in Llanberis in the heart of Snowdonia, with a 20 mile cycle along gorgeous country roads, you’ll swap your bikes for boots at the foot of Snowdon to trek the tallest mountain in England and Wales. After a few happy snaps and some spectacular panoramas at the top, it’s back down you go to meet your bikes at the bottom.

Once at Snowdon’s foot, you can revive your energy with some refreshments, before getting back into your cycling gear and into the saddle for a ten mile stretch to the shore of Llyn Gwynant.

Here, you meet your Canadian canoes and conquer a course on the lake. There’s no need for canoeing experience or equipment, as we provide everything you need, including experienced canoeing guides ready to help you out at the drop of a paddle.
