Challenge yourself to trek for charity along 25 miles of Hadrian’s Wall – one wall, one epic charity challenge in just one weekend!
Hadrian’s Wall was built in AD122 on the orders of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, and stretched from the East to West coasts of Britain, from Bowness on Solway in the West to Wallsend in the East.
This most ancient of charity treks takes us from Lanercost Priory to Brocolitia, encompassing some fascinating ruins. It is the most remarkable Roman monument in the country, and quite unique throughout the former Empire. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site – which cuts through Northumberland National Park, Hadrian’s Wall attracts trekkers from all over, as it offers great challenging walks, filled with a stunning backdrop and history. It’s a perfect location for charity challenges in the UK sector of fundraising events.
When will you plan your invasion? Join and conquer the Wall today!

Join us on this long-weekend trek for charity, as we experience the beauty of one of the most breathtaking and largest deserts in the world – The Sahara!
Our charity challenge is to trek for four days through this ever-changing landscape and to climb to the top of the massive Chigaga Dunes, where we will witness the desert sun-rise. The days will be hot, and the trekking will be tough, but the rewards of being part of one of the best fundraising events around, conquering this desert and the pleasure of having the volcanic Anti-Atlas Mountains as our backdrop will be worth it!
With traditional Berbers as our guides, we’ll experience the delights of Morocco first hand, in addition to being mesmerised by the remoteness and solitude that the Sahara brings. If you want to take part in one of the most fantastic charity events but have limited time to take away from the UK, this most unique adventure in charity challenge events is for you.
So join us as we conquer the Sahara!
Great Wall Trek

“You have not lived if you have not been to the Great Wall”, or so the Chinese saying goes, and it’s not surprising why! The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys.
The China Great Wall Trek for charity is a fantastic 5 day hike along this awesome man made structure. One of the best in charity treks, this challenge takes us over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections during this charity challenge where we’ll feel the Great Wall is for us only, with no-one else in sight. Rest assured, the Great Wall provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.
Exclusive to Global Adventure Challenges, this most amazing of fundraising events also enables us to ‘lend a hand’ repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. We will each place our brick in this newly restored section, ensuring our own place in the Great Wall of China!
The trekking on this charity challenge is hard, due to the amount of steps we trek up and down each day – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek 1km on this glorious structure! Another highlight of this challenge is to conquer the 1,000 steps up to the wall at Mutianyu – culminating with the ascent of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’.
Following this crème de la crème of charity events, we’ll have some free time to explore Beijing’s famous sites, such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square before celebrating our achievement at dinner.
An ancient wonder, an amazing accomplishment… join us on this charity challenge of a lifetime and ensure your place in history as we trek and help repair the Great Wall of China!

THE BEST LONDON TO PARIS BIKE RIDE – SEE THE FINALE OF THE TOUR DE FRANCE IN THE HEART OF PARIS!
We are offering 2 amazing routes in July 2016 giving you more choice. Our London to Paris Bike Ride in July 2017 combined with watching the exciting finale of Tour De France is the best cycling experience in Europe. Register today to take advantage of the EARLY BIRD OFFER and secure your place!
Cycling from London to Paris is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe, and the best of bike rides for charity to hit the sector! Join our London to Paris Bike Ride for a truly inspirational experience, and a great way to raise funds for the charity of your choice.
Starting in London, our 299 mile, 4 day route takes us through glorious English countryside, to the ferry from Dover to Calais. Once ‘French side’, we push on cycling along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France. Get ready for a fantastic charity bike ride – the tarmac in France is superb, and cycling is the nation’s favourite sport so don’t be surprised when the locals make way for you and cheer you on!
Whether you are a regular cyclist or simply enjoy a Sunday afternoon meander, as long as you are willing to train, then this charity cycle event is perfect for you. We cater for all levels of ability on this ride. The special cycling experience, combined with a fantastic support crew to look after you, means this charity challenge is no longer a dream but a reality. Don’t worry about your luggage, water or food – we take care of it all – leaving you to just cycle and focus on your goal of reaching Paris.
The pièce de résistance of this cycle for charity will be the spectacular view of the 324 metre Eiffel Tower, which marks our finish line. The days in the saddle are long, but upon reaching Paris and celebrating our achievements in this fabulous capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off!
Try something more challenging like an ultra marathon or how about one of the more fun physical challenges such as Tough Mudder where you and your friends and colleagues can make up a team. All we ask is that you ask for people to recognise your great achievement by sponsoring you.
With a variety of events throughout the year across the UK all you need to do is tell us which event you would like to do and we will help to get you signed up and provide you with a fundraising pack and materials to help you fundraise.
As these events are organised by a third party there is a charge for participating but we don’t impose a minimum sponsorship target (unless otherwise stated), we do however recommend that you set yourself a personal target of £100.
