Upcoming Challenge Events  

The London to Paris Cycle Ride: In May thousands of people will take on the epic challenge of cycling from London to Paris to raise money for charity. Find out more details now on their website.   

The Color Run: This fun event runs throughout the year in plenty of locations. It's a 5k run with an added twist: participants are covered in a rainbow of colours throughout the day at special colour zones.  Find out if there's a race near you on their website.

The Three Peaks Challenge: If running and cycling aren't your thing, you can challenge yourself with an ambitious climbing event running from May onwards. The Three Peaks Challenge involves scaling the highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland, and climbers are supported with a professional guide and transport to each location. You can find out more through event host Maximum Adventure.
