What physical activities does the event involve?

Exact details of the UK Challenge will not be disclosed until the first evening of the event to maintain a degree of mystery. That said, teams can expect to be running, cycling and canoeing amongst other things!

What training do teams need to do in preparation?

Training is an important part of the UK Challenge and a great way of engaging your wider business in the lead up to the event. Each team will be provided with a comprehensive training guide well in advance of the event to assist with preparations. Our team are available daily to provide additional advice with regular updates on training and preparation.

Do teams have to fundraise?

Fundraising is a great way of engaging the wider business and motivating your team at the event, however it is at the individual team’s discretion.

Do we have to bring a senior executive along?

You don’t have to, however we have designed a senior executive stage for networking. Not only that but this is a great opportunity for them to experience the event for themselves, get to know employees they may not know, learn about the company and of course see how awesome their teams are!

When does the event start?

Registration takes place between 10:00 and 14:00.

What kind of minibus would you recommend we hire?

One that is capable of carrying all 6 (or 7) team members and equipment comfortably. (nb. there is a limit of 1 vehicle per team on stage)

How fit do I need to be?

The UK Challenge is uniquely designed to test the combined mental, physical and strategic capabilities of individuals in a team environment. However, it is suggested that team members should be capable of comfortably covering a distance of 10km on foot and/or 15km by bike. There will be waterbased activity such as canoeing, but most of all teams should be prepared for long days and challenging missions.

What should I bring to the event?

Please refer to the team manual. However, we recommend bringing warm clothes, spare footwear (including socks), insect repellent, towels etc. Anything that you may need that is unique to this year’s event will be communicated to you beforehand.

What are the final deadlines for team selection?

We ask that you have your final team selection confirmed 4 weeks before the event. This is due to logistical operations such as ordering your running suits and ensuring caterers are aware of any dietary requirements etc. If you decide to change any team members in those 4 weeks before the event, please inform us ASAP and we will strive to accommodate any changes if possible.

When can I book my company’s place for 2020?
