Calling all action heroes!

The Three Peaks Challenge (7th — 8th July) is an event for teams of four to six, including a driver. Adventurous supporters attempt to take the Charity’s mascot, Paddington Bear, to the top of the three highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in just 24 hours.

Teams are responsible for their own transport between the mountains — Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon — and must raise a minimum of £1,800 for Action Medical Research.

Race the Sun is a unique triathlonstyle challenge for teams of four. Set in the stunning Lake District, teams will set off at sunrise on Saturday 1st September, aiming to cycle 50-miles, climb to the summit of Helvellyn and canoe a course on Lake Thirlmere, all before sunset.
