Join An Open Challenge

Are you aged 18-35 and looking for an adventure with purpose? You’re welcome to join any one of the challenges listed on our website. If you join one of our university challenges then you’ll need to agree to raise minimum sponsorship for one of our fantastic campus partner charities. To find out more about the treks and European Marathons available just select one of the options from the menu above.

Alternatively we run trips each year that are only open to non-students. These trips are designed for travellers who want to travel with like-minded people to some of the worlds most amazing destinations. As a Choose a Challenge participant you’ll get:

  • Incredible value; Whether it’s a 3 peaks challenge or a trek to Everest Base Camp we offer some of the lowest-priced trips of any UK operator whilst ensuring that all our trips are safe and professionally-run.

  • UK reps; our overseas treks are locally-led by guides who have grown up in the area where the trek takes place. We also have fully-trained reps stationed at the hotels we use in Moshi, Kathmandu and Cuzco so you have the peace of mind that there’s someone from home on hand to help you with any issues that may arise in-country.

  • Flexible pricing; you can choose whether you want to take the minimum sponsorship pathway or self-fund.

  • Awesome Support; our London HQ is staffed by a full-time team who are on hand to provide any help and advice you need. We’re experts in our field and whichever challenge you choose, there’s someone in the office who has ‘been there and done that’!

The whole experience was amazing from registering for the trip through to standing on top of Africa’s highest mountain in the dawn light. It really felt like Choose a Challenge were with me every step of the way
