Even if you are new to these type of events then it doesn’t matter as long as you try to do some training for it. Everyone has to start somewhere and the advice and support you receive from the staff accompanying you and from other participants will help you along to cross the finish line in triumph.
All events are led by qualified and experienced staff who are first aid trained, but our aim is to see you safely from start to finish and in a way that is enjoyable to everyone taking part.
We specialise in running trips for all abilities and we also run tailor made trips for charities, factories or other groups. We can organise and quote for any challenge even if it is not on our website.
After you have looked through the various events, if you have any questions then please contact us. That way we can ensure that you are happy with your challenge and you know what it entails..
You should choose us because: -
We strive to ensure that your safety is our priority and we want you to enjoy this challenge then go on to greater things in the years to come. Our staff are qualified and experienced in all weather situations and terrains and all are first aid qualified. You will be looked after from start to finish.
Our trips are extremely good value compared to our competitors and we pride ourselves that we offer a realistic price for all our events in the current economic climate. The only way to find out is to register for one of our events and see what you get and the achievements people make on their personal challenges.
Our aim is not just to get you to register for a trip in 2013 but to come back with us over and over again. By providing a good and enjoyable trip then word spreads, so if you enjoy your trip then tell others or better still bring them with you on another event.
The price you see on the itinerary is the price you pay. There are no hidden costs. If you wish to change to a different trip then that is no problem. Just contact us to discuss it. There are no financial penalties in doing so.
How to use this website: -
1. The website is easy to navigate. Look through the list of events and see which challenge would suit you.
2. Read the itinerary carefully and see which challenge and dates are convenient for you.
3. Decide whether you wish to self fund your place or whether you are going to use the charity option. Complete the name and address of your charity, (we will contact them to arrange payment of the balance after you pay the registration fee).
4. Complete the registration form ensuring you give contact numbers, email address and notifying us of any medical problems which may affect your challenge.
5. Post the form to us with a cheque payable to Outdoor Challenge Events.
Before your Challenge: -
Get organised and get a training or fitness programme. We acknowledge this is easier or harder for some than others. Those who do some training usually succeed those who do not, struggle!
We will send you a kit list which you should try to acquire before the event. We do not hold stocks of kit so if you do not have it then get it. Remember, new boots need to be ‘walked in’.
We will also send you a receipt for the monies paid for the event and any further information before the event and from time to time which may be beneficial for you.
As the challenge approaches, ease off training on the preceding week and ensure you have the kit list. And know where we meet and times.
Join us in good time on the day and on your challenge, give your best, and if you are struggling then just spare a thought for those worse off than you, who you are perhaps raising money for and that should give you the motivation to complete your challenge.
Once your registration form and initial payment is received by us that guarantees you a place on the trip, subject to enough participants. The registration fee is non refundable but may be transferred to another challenge. Should you enrol for the higher price challenges, you can pay by instalments if you wish to. Contact us to arrange this.
