The first instalment of the Wonders of the World series is taking it as high as we can possibly go on Earth. As this is a Challenge Event, why not start with the biggest challenge available to us - climbing Mount Everest? We’re not saying you need to fly to Nepal for the month to trek Everest but why not give yourself a more demanding challenge wherever you are and complete either 30km, 100km or a whopping 200km in July?
Upon completion of the first event in the Wonders of the World series, you will receive the first piece of the WotW jigsaw. The top left corner piece will show the peak of Everest to begin your own journey to the peak of fitness. When you collect more pieces throughout the year, you can either hang them up or connect the other pieces of the jigsaw.
Our chosen charity for the WotW Challenge Series is 'When You Wish Upon A Star'. When You Wish Upon A Star grant magical wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. They make memories for a Wish child and their family to remember for a lifetime. By granting a Wish, this enables the family to have a truly amazing time forgetting about hospital routines, doctor's appointments and the gruelling treatments that have become a daily occurrence and allowing the whole family to smile, laugh and enjoy life!
Challenge Events are all about pushing yourself to complete the distance so everyone is a winner if they can reach their target. So, in addition to your event reward, we have three prize boxes for the most accumulated donations and 12 lucky draw prize boxes to be won by anyone who completes their chosen distance, each worth £25!
