Training & Preparation


Training weekends are a fantastic opportunity for you to get into the challenge spirit before the event itself.

We do not expect our participants to be professional athletes, or super fit by any means – it’s all about the experience – but it is true that the fitter you are, the more enjoyment and satisfaction you will receive from your chosen challenge.

A major benefit and a huge positive of the experience is having the opportunity to set targets and increase your fitness levels in the lead up to the challenge. With our support, encouragement and advice, we’re positive you can achieve your goals, whatever they may be.

 

Training Guidelines

As part of our commitment to you and to support you on your journey, we supply comprehensive training guides for all our challenges. These will be sent to each participant, as part of the Welcome Pack received following registration. 

However, if you've lost them or want a sneak peak brief, they can also be downloaded below.

Training Weekends

Training weekends are a fantastic opportunity for you to get into the challenge spirit before the event itself.


We hold trekking, off-road and on-road cycling training weekends, as well as a dog-sleeding information day for those taking part in The Husky Trail Challenge. There are many benefits of joining us on a training weekend:

  • Test your kit – you can test your kit out and/or grab some face-to-face advice from our Challenge Leader on what equipment is best.
  • Assess your current fitness levels and speak with our Mountain Leaders about your training progress and goals.
  • Meet and get to know others who are also taking on a Global Adventure Challenge
  • Just fancy a great weekend away in the stunning UK countryside!
  • Information on locations, dates and costs can be found by downloading the challenge specific guide.


High Altitude Challenges

Any challenge that exceeds 3,500m in altitude is considered to be a high altitude challenge.
 


It’s very important every participant understands the effects altitude can have on the body. We’ve created a comprehensive document, which we highly recommend you read in the lead up to your challenge. You can access this by clicking here.
