Descend deep into one of the best natural wonders of the world on one of the
best charity events! We begin our American charity challenge with an acclimatisation
trek through Sedona, with its popular red rock formations, also known as Red
Rock Country. Natives consider this to be the spiritual vortex to the south
west of America and it’s not surprising why – Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
rival many national parks the World over. The highlight of the trek for
charity will be the descent of over 3,100 ft into the mind blowing Grand
Canyon following an ancient Indian trail that leads us into the breathtaking
Havasupai Indian Reservation – the bright blue green lagoons, huge waterfalls
and scenery within the reservation are by far some of the best our planet
Earth has to offer.

Kilimanjaro-listing-2016  

Kilimanjaro

14 September - 23 September 2017
£395 registration fee and minimum sponsorship of £3700

Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World and for
many people, standing on its summit is a life-long ambition. The snow-capped
peak was first reached by German explorers in the late 19th century and you
will follow in their footsteps as you attempt to scale this mighty mountain! The
world’s highest freestanding peak (Kilimanjaro is an extinct volcano and rises
alone from the surrounding savannah) is situated in Tanzania and this challenge
is an amazing opportunity to, not only climb Kilimanjaro, but also to explore
East Africa yourself and learn about the rich culture and varied landscapes of
the region.

Everest-listing-2016  

Everest Base Camp

21 September - 5 October 2017
£395 registration fee and minimum sponsorship of £3700

If we had to describe one of our challenges as ‘Epic’, then this trek to Everest
Base Camp would be the one that we’d choose. Maybe it’s the fact that you
have to fly into the ‘Worlds Most Dangerous Airport’ at Lukla to begin the
trek that makes it feel so epic or maybe it’s the soaring peaks that surround
you at every turn. Maybe it is simply the fact that this journey to the very heart
of the Himalaya mountains takes over a fortnight in total. Either way, in terms
of the scale and grandeur of the landscape through which you travel nothing
can beat this truly epic challenge
