This event is ATKINS inaugural team building challenge event in partnership with the Youth Adventure Trust.
We are inviting teams of 4-6 team members to cycle 80km and walk 20km to the summit of Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons and raise £1,500 per team for the Youth Adventure Trust. This will require some planning and preparation by the teams. You will be given support and advice on fundraising, equipment and training. The event aims to test teams’ abilities to work together effectively and will also present many personal challenges along the way. If you have any questions about any aspect of the ATKINS 100 Challenge please contact Claire.
Take the first step to a rewarding adventure... Register your team.
As mentioned above, teams will receive support and advice including training days, fitness and training plans, equipment advice, a fundraising handbook and fundraising support from us.
There will be an event briefing held on the Friday evening and the challenge will start at 0600hrs on the Saturday morning. Starting in the heart of the Brecon Beacons the 80km cycling route heads southeast, from Brecon, following the course of the Usk river, linking with the Heads of the Valley road then returning north over the A470 high mountain pass for a dramatic descent to Brecon. The 20km walking route starts at the finish point for the cycling, heading southwest into the mountains. Teams will gain height quickly and will summit Corn Du, Pen Y Fan (the highest peak in the Brecon’s) and Cribyn before descending back to the finish.
Route cards are provided as well as VHF radios for communications and qualified mountain marshals. The event will be rounded off with an evening reception and party at a local hotel. Each team will receive a certificate marking their achievement and a prize will be awarded to the team with the highest level of fundraising and to those fastest teams on each stage and overall.
If by the end of your training programme you know you can do the following reasonably comfortably, then you should start the event with a very good level of confidence:
The ATKINS 100 Challenge 2014 has two very different but inextricably linked components: the fundraising and the physical challenge. In our experience the most successful teams tackle both elements with equal determination and gain the support of the whole company.
Some highlights from Forest Camp 1. We're off again to the Forest of Dean tomorrow, for the last camp of the season. http://t.co/kfFqM88kSo
We're off to Forest Camp tomorrow young people will have a great chance to show off the skills they've learnt so far! http://t.co/1bdX7ZgbA3
@BritainonFoot not a problem for the young people we work with, who just completed their first mountain expedition at Mountain Camp.
Final review of Mountain Camp done and we're on the bus back home with some tired but happy young people. http://t.co/1X2vOZd99f
