Sporting Challenges

There really is something for everyone – from sponsored walks to the London Marathon, cycling 100 miles in the unique London-Surrey 100, jumping out of a plane, walking the Great Wall of China or climbing Kilimanjaro!

Whether you’re an experienced athlete or just looking for a new way to push yourself, challenges are a great way to fundraise. Turn2us has guaranteed places in some of the UK's top sporting events - and, by teaming up with a leading specialist tour operator, Charity Challenge we can offer a range of treks and bike challenges both in the UK and overseas.
