You may have heard that this event has been postponed. You should have heard from the race organiser by now and we have also been in touch with your options. Whatever you decide, there's always a place for you with #TeamNSPCC, so please do get in touch with us to let us know what you would like to do. We're grateful for all your hard work training and fundraising – it's only with the help of people like you we're able to protect children today and prevent abuse tomorrow.

You can still join #TeamNSPCC for the new date too! Sign up for this event and help us make sure we can still be here for children.

Challenge information

This challenge is run by Charity Challenge. It's a tough day, with 9 full hours of hiking, cycling, and kayaking. It is suitable for all fitness levels, but we highly recommend training and having a good base level of fitness. 

In order to take part in this event, you should aim to raise 80% of your fundraising target (£350) by 17 July. If you do not reach this, we may not be able to pay for your place.

Bike hire is not included in this event. You're welcome to bring your own bike (road or hybrid bikes are recommended) or you can hire one through Charity Challenge for £25. 

Accommodation on Friday night and breakfast and lunch on Saturday are included.

Fundraising ideas

GIF with Ready Steady Go flashing

As the world is changing daily, so is the way people are fundraising and asking for sponsorship. We’re here to help you think of fundraising in a different and safe way during this time.

Did you know… Donations made via Just Giving and Virgin Money Giving are paid to the NSPCC once a week. This means that we can put every donation to use immediately – so we can continue to be there for children.

Here is our handy guide to how you might reach your target during lockdown (and have fun at the same time!)

  • Online pub quiz - £100
    You don’t need to be at your local to hold a quiz, get online and use a video conference platform to host one instead. Ask individuals to donate in return for taking part. 
  • Hold an online class - £100
    You may be a teacher, fancy yourself as a fitness guru or can teach a musical instrument. If not why not reach out to friends and family to host a class on your behalf.
  • Have a clear out - £150
    Having a big sort out is great during anytime of the year. Sell your unwanted clothes and accessories online to rack up the cash.
