WYE VALLEY CHALLENGE

Saturday 11 - Sunday 12 August 2018

CHEPSTOW TO HEREFORD

 

From the same organisers as the Cotswold Way Challenge, the Wye Valley Challenge follows the same format i.e. run, jog or walk between 25 and 100km along the beautiful Wye Valley.  Take on the full 100km over 1 or 2 days or 50km (first or second half). There is even a shorter 25km distance from Chepstow which allows people of all levels of fitness to support Young Gloucestershire. 

Sign up here today – you’ll be asked to pay a registration fee and agree to a fundraising target depending on the format you choose.  Take part as an individual or enter as a team.  Either way you’ll be supporting disadvantaged young people in Gloucestershire.

We are a small team but we will support you from start to finish of your challenge journey to make sure that every step you take helps young people in Gloucestershire move forward themselves.

As well as working with Action Challenge on their 100km series  we also work with Charity Challenge who put on challenges across the globe.  See yourself at the top of Kilimanjaro, walking along the Great Wall of China or in the heights of Machu Pichu or Everest Base Camp?  Check out their challenges here.

Here are some of our favourites:
