On your bike

Keep fit, make new friends and even team build as part of our cycling events – we’ll be there to keep those wheels rolling! 

Organise your own event

Ever fancied organising a dress down day? Shaving your head? Or organising a family fun day? Whatever your plans let us know and we'll help as much as we can.

Take on a challenge

From sky diving and bungee jumping in the UK to trekking Kilimanjaro, we’ll be there to support you through your adrenaline-fuelled challenge.

Volunteer at one of our events

We always need people to help us at events from masseurs to photographers to people to cheer on our participants and keep them motivated! Can you help?
