Book Your Event

If you’re a company or a charity and you’d like to know how we could help you or have any other questions, you can give us a call on 0161 922 8666 or 0044 161 922 8666 if outside the UK, or complete the easy form below. But if you’re just raring to go and want to book yourself onto one of our great events – and can see the event which you want – then go for it, and get booked on using the calendar below!
As a company

If you’re planning a corporate event to develop staff, improve their performance and build a stronger team, fill out our online form and we’ll give you a call to discuss how we can help. Alternatively, we can post you all the information you need, so you have time to consider your options, then arrange a follow up call or meeting with one of our Event Directors.

As a charity

If you work for a charity and are looking for a new and exciting challenge for your supporters, please get in touch so we can discuss how we can help. We’ll send you all the information you need, including fundraising options to ensure that the costs to both the participants and your charity are kept to a minimum and only paid when you can afford to do so. One of our Event Directors will then give you a follow up call, or arrange a meeting, to chat about any particular needs you have.

As an individual

If you simply want to challenge yourself and take part in an adventure of a lifetime, pick a event that suits you on the calendar below and book. Places are limited so, if you do want to come with friends or family, it makes sense to all book at once. Anyone that wants to raise money for their chosen charity can register and pay as normal, then let us know who you want to fundraise for. We’ll contact the charity on your behalf and will guide you through the process of setting up a fundraising page.

It’s no easy task to plan an event, especially when it involves a group of people and you’re under pressure to make it a success. Well don’t worry. We’re here to help you every step of the way.

On booking

We’ll send you a Welcome Page with lots of support material to make the process a little easier

  • To help you promote the event to potential participants you will be able to download a flyer, which you can personalise, as well as video clips and images.
  • To help with enrolment, you’ll be able to access an Eventbrite link with a registration form and medical questionnaire.
  • To help with all those last-minute questions your welcome page will include full event Instructions with details of what to bring, locations, times and important contact numbers.
In the run-up to the event

We’ll keep in touch at pre-arranged times to see how you’re getting on and find out whether you need any additional support. Of course, you can always contact us at any point if you have specific questions.

How fit do I need to be?
We’ve designed Challenge the Wild so that it’s accessible to everyone. The idea is that people work together and, therefore, the team only moves as fast as its slowest team member. That said, there is some trekking involved so we’d recommend that you have a reasonable level of fitness.

Do I need any specialist equipment? If so, how much will it cost?
No, you do not need any specialist equipment. Although there will be a need for sturdy shoes and relevant clothing. We will be sending a kit list over to you and if you are not a mountain climber than it might entail a little cost but it will be very affordable.

What training do you recommend to help me complete this challenge?
You don’t have to do any training beforehand but, if you want to get fit try hill walking with a weighted backpack or walking on an incline on the treadmill. Both are excellent training exercises.

I’m fundraising as part of this challenge. Can you give me any tips on how to raise as much as possible?
Yes, we have a few fundraising ideas. You can set up an online fundraising page to ask family and friends to support you, organise a cake sale or clothing sale? Any hidden talents? You could sell artwork?

Is the event dangerous?
Not at all. If they were, we wouldn’t have so many people coming back to us year after year. They’re challenging, yes, but we have extremely experienced Mountain Leaders and Technical experts who are brilliant at their job and amazing at getting the best out of our clients. Every activity in every location is thoroughly risk assessed and each has passed the required safety standards.

Are there any medical issues or disabilities that would rule someone out from taking part in the challenge?
Yes, there can be some medical issues but not many. It’s important for our team to know of any issues or allergies in advance so that we can work around them. If you have any concerns or queries please email nia.zakria@challengethewild.co.uk.

I’m scared of heights/water/enclosed spaces etc. Will this be an issue?
These are very common fears so you won’t be alone. Our challenges do involve heights, water and enclosed spaces, but our staff are very used to dealing with nervous people and will work with you to combat any fears. If you really don’t want to go through with it, you don’t have to.

Is it OK if I decide not to take part in one of the activities?
Yes. So long as you give it your best go, then we can’t ask any more of you.

Do you have a kit list of everything I’ll need?
Yes. Once you’ve booked your place we’ll send you an email with all the details you’ll need.

As these challenges are in remote locations, will we have contact details to share in case of emergencies?
Yes. These will all be sent to you in your Welcome Pack.

Will food be provided?
If it is a one day event then you will need to bring a packed lunch with you as food will not be provided. If it’s an overnight stay event you will also need to bring a packed lunch but on the night of the event you will be making dinner as part of a challenge and breakfast for the next morning will be provided.

Are all the events the same?
Most of our one day events include the same activities which are abseiling, scrambling, waterfall jumping and zip wiring.
We also hold Xtreme events where you will do the same activities but they will be more intense and challenging.

Do I need to bring my own tent?
No, tents will be provided.

Is there a toilet on site?
There will always be toilet facilities near your camp site.

How old do I need to be in order to complete the challenge?
All participants must be 18 or over on the date of the challenge.

Will we have a chance to chat with the delivery team?
Every month, the delivery team invite all of our upcoming participants onto a webinar (if you’ve never been on one before, don’t worry it’s like a video conference call thingy – you just press a button and can watch and talk!). On these, you’ll get to meet some of the instructors, learn about your upcoming event and ask any questions – no holds barred! People find them real handy to cover off all those questions they have.

Got a question for us? Just pop your details in the form here, and we’ll be in touch real soon.
