The Challenge Hub is again allowing Tag Teams to take part in each challenge, providing an opportunity for those wishing to take part, but want a slightly less daunting experience. 

Mike Inkster, Director of Challenge Hub said, ‘The Challenges are not races. They have a simple purpose: to give individuals the opportunity to take on a challenge that tests both mental and physical fortitude in a safe, well organised environment.  There are a lot of people who are looking to push themselves, define themselves...these events do that’.

He added, ‘We are committed to making everyone feel welcome and cared for, whilst remembering that the Challenges are tough and are probably going to cause most people a degree of pain and discomfort. However, we also believe that everyone who takes up a Challenge will know more about themselves when they finish than they did when they started. Whilst we do our best to offer every encouragement possible to help you achieve the objective ultimately it will be your mental and physical strengths that carry you through’.

Each Challenge offers a safe and picturesque setting for either an individual or team to take part in.  The challenge will be physical but more importantly will test you mentally! How will you cope as the hours tick by? Are you interested in seeing how you will respond to the body wanting you to stop? You can enter either solo or as a tag team.  Tag teams will have to decide the best tactics and the team ethic!

Mike said, ‘Everyone who takes part in any one of our Challenges is a winner...no matter how far they get. Everyone who completes a Challenge gets the same medal regardless of the ‘position’ in which they finish’. We like to treat the last person home as equally as the first.’

All the details are on our website and you can enter online using the PayPal option with any major credit card (you don’t need an account) or by post with a cheque.

If you have any questions regarding the Challenges then please do get in touch by email or ‘phone and we will do our best to help.

We look forward to seeing you in 2016.
