If the more energetic events listed here have triggered a desire to get out there and do something meaningful, then good news – we’ve got further options for you. Challenge events are the perfect chance to chalk off a life goal while raising money for YHA’s vital work with young people. For runners, we have charity places at the London Landmarks Half Marathon, the Great North Run and the London Marathon, while cyclists can join Team YHA for the 100-mile Prudential Ride London. For a fresh challenge, enquire about Man vs Coast, a 23-mile trail race along the Cornish coast, or The Wall, a 69-mile ultra along Hadrian’s Wall.

The fundraising targets are achievable and we’ll be there to give you tips, support and encouragement. And remember – we’re always delighted to hear from any of you keen to raise money through your adventures, no matter what they are.
