Calling all adventurous people...

Adventure and personal challenge are at the very heart of what we do at the Youth Adventure Trust.

This year, to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we are looking for 25 intrepid individuals to take on a personal challenge and raise some money to help vulnerable young people climb their own personal mountains.

Run a marathon, do an endurance bike ride, swim the oceans or take to the air - do whatever you fancy and we will support you every step of the way.

Louisa Oldfield would be delighted to talk to you about your ideas, advise you on planning, training and fundraising and be your own personal cheer leader.  Email her on This email address is being protected from spambots.

 If you need some inspiration then take a look at what some of our other TEAM 25! members are doing this year:

London Marathon

In April, YAT volunteer Elisha Hocking went for the big one. She ran her first ever marathon in London and was sponsored for YAT. Well run Elisha and thank you for supporting the Youth Adventure Trust!

In July Louise and Caroline took on the Cotswold Way Challenge.  They walked 100km from Bath to Cheltenham in 24 hours, an ultra- achievement!

John BennettsSwimming Lake Windermere

John is going to be swimming Lake Windermere in September.  This is what he has to say:

"The plan is to take on the beautiful and challenging Windermere One Way swim along the full 10 mile length of Windermere from Fell Foot to Low Wray. The event is in September, and he's already training to make sure I can swim the distance, psyching myself up for at least 6hrs face down in the 15 degree water and keeping my fingers crossed for good weather!"

Mark smallWiltshire to London Kayak

Leading by example, Youth Adventure Trust CEO Mark Davies and Trustees Peter Coleman and Mike Hughes will be paddling from Devizes in our Wiltshire homeland to Westminster Bridge in London. The race is a severe test of skill, physical and mental stamina and planning as its not only 125 miles long but also contains 77 portages to circumnavigate! The route is well tested as there has been an official race along this route since 1948 however our illustrious leaders have elected to do this in September, without the huzzah of the crowds. Now all they need are the boats…!

Youth Adventure Trust Ambassador, Sarah Outen, will be taking on the Slateman Triathlon in May.  She will be taking on a swim surrounded by mountains, a bike course in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and a run through an awesome slate quarry. On top of all of that, Sarah has set herself the target of raising £3,300 over the course of the year, enough to cover the cost of one place on our programmer core costs, allowing us to plan ahead for the future.

Team Bike

YAT Volunteer Manager Jon Rich and his cycling buddy, YAT volunteer, Dan Wilesmith are taking on a Bath Everesting Cycle Challenge on 30th September. They are expecting to cover the distance of 175 miles and 70 hill climbs in around 16 hours and tick another ride off their bucket list!

Robotics student Jeremy May is a novice fundraiser but in July he bravely took to the skies this summer in support of our young people. Hopefully the start of something Jeremy?!...
