Event Managers


Great events need great teams to deliver them. Action Challenge has a reputation for the highest quality events and participant experience in the sector, and we’re looking for key staff who will share our ambition of delivering excellence! If you’re an Event Manager, or perhaps you are looking to gain some real experience of mass participation events – you could be part of our team helping to deliver some of the UK’s biggest & best fundraising challenges.

Event Crew


We’re looking for dedicated & enthusiastic individuals to join us and work with us on our events. Working on an Ultra Challenge can be fun, engaging and hugely rewarding – from helping to set up the sites, serving cups of tea, to welcoming in challengers to rest stops – the roles are varied and you will never be doing the same thing all weekend. Fancy joining us and gaining some fantastic experience working in the world of outdoor events? 



Have you recently graduated this summer, or you are now on a long summer break from your studies and looking for a great way to travel the country, meet new people, gain life long skills & event experience whilst at the same time taking on responsibility & having the opportunity to earn?

We’ve just launched our ‘Student Summer Crew’ programme – for those eager to learn & earn!

I started completing in the Ultra Challenges, and after taking in part in a few I decided to join the Cheer Squad to help and celebrate others achieving their goals. The atmosphere is always amazing, and it’s like being part of a big family – I’ve made friends for life through being part of the Ultra Challenges. 



Cheer Squad


Our Cheer Squad are an amazing bunch of energetic, passionate, and fun individuals – many of whom have taken part in an Ultra Challenges themselves, and are now using their experience to motivate others. We’re looking to grow the team in 2023 – if you can give a few hours, a full day, or a whole weekend to help others -at our finish lines handing out 000’s of medals and cheering on Challengers. You will join our team of like minded individuals & have a lot fun! 

Trek Masters


Trek Masters are fit & active volunteers who give their time to helping others along the actual routes, and bring their own deep experience of Ultra Challenges and a passion for helping others to their finish line. As a Trek Master you’ll be part of a close knit team, and allocated a section of the route to patrol, or to lead groups of participants when the going gets tough, and to support our safety teams during the day or night.
