CORPORATE TEAMS

UK'S BEST CORPORATE CHALLENGES

Looking for a memorable event to energise & motivate your Team, without the hassle of organising your own, or risks of an unproven supplier? An Ultra Challenge gets colleagues active & bonding on a fun, accessible, safe, high quality outdoors event - ideal for a wide range of ages & athletic abilities, and perfect to boost wellbeing and perhaps support your 'charity of the year'. Teams can be of any size - take on a distance that suits them, at their pace - and there're 14 fantastic events to choose from.  There's also a 'Virtual Version' of each Challenge, so your company could engage more colleagues across a wide geography and bring the whole team together!

10 KM, 25 KM, 50 KM, or 100 KM

Push yourself further

full support all the way

Why an Ultra Challenge is perfect for your Team!

Because they’re great ‘oven ready’ events with full support & hospitality; excellent value with no set up costs, and will provide an unforgettable bonding experience for your team! With optional enhanced hospitality packages also available – including private gazebos, branding, support vehicles, and accommodation packages – you can make it your own special event. From a group of 6 looking for an active weekend, to company’s with a few hundred colleagues supporting their charity of the year and getting to know each other – there’s an Ultra Challenge for your team!

Teams can Walk, Jog, or Run 25 km, 50 km or 100 km (+ a few 10k / 10 mile events) and mixing it all up to suit colleagues with a range of fitness is fine! You won’t find more accessible, flexible, sociable, and rewarding events anywhere! Colleagues who are unable to make the big day – can always take on the ‘Virtual Version’!

For 20 years Action Challenge has run events in the UK & Overseas, and have a 1st class record. ‘On Foot’ is much safer than cycling; our events are risk assessed, and operated to the highest standards with medical professionals & qualified mountain leaders involved with safety teams.

We deal with over 500 UK Charities, and Ultra Challenges are perfect events to get colleagues behind  fundraising initiatives for your Charity of the Year. We have a range of flexible payment options to make it all easy for you & for your chosen charity.

We provide tailored online registration forms to make colleague sign-up easy, and our dedicated Challenge App communicates all the key information to them – enabling you to focus on recruiting your participants.

For teams of 20+ we can offer discounts, and have a range of payment options to make it easy for bulk payment via invoice, or to collect an agreed registration fee from colleagues, and to involve your chosen charity where applicable.

Whether it’s your own gazebo or marquee decorated with your branding at the start – or perhaps overnight camping for your colleagues – or group transport up to the event – we can tailor a hospitality package to turn your Ultra Challenge into your own special company event!

Your Team will have a fantastic, inclusive experience on an Ultra Challenge. For many it will also kick start a more active life-style, and others will come back more motivated – and all will understand fellow colleagues better.  

Parallel to each ‘real’ Ultra Challenge – we run a ‘Virtual Version’. This means the overall company ‘challenge event’ can be opened up to a much wider audience – for those who cant ‘make it on the day, or live too far away. Colleagues can then take on their challenge anywhere – either over an extended period that suits them – or over the weekend of the ‘real’ thing – and join in online with their stories via social media. A great value way to engage with, and motivate, the wider team!

There’s an App to download once signed up – with guides, optional extra bookings, route maps, kit lists, training videos & plans, and much more – along with and all the latest updates leading up to the event. Our Facebook forum is great place for advice and hints & tips. 

Experienced Ultra Challengers help develop our training guides & videos on – foot care, nutrition, hydration, & building distance up for all levels of experience. We also run optional training walks.

There are bookable coach transfers, shuttle busses, & parking options before & after the challenge to make travel planning a bit easier.  Most Events offer camping packages at the ~50 km Saturday ‘half way’ for the 2 day ‘Daylight’ 100 km challenge option (or for half challenge finish / start), and on many events camping at the main start venue for Friday night camping before the event.

Pink arrows, ribbon, & glow-sticks at night, mark the route, and with Google maps in the App – you won’t get lost! Our chip timing has you scanned at rest stops, with your progress tracked, and can be  shared online for family & friends. 

There are covered rest stops every ~12.5 km or so, with major stops each ~25 km – with seating, clean toilets, medical services, & shuttle busses. There’s a range of snacks & drinks at all stops, with full meals at major ones & at the finish – all included in your entry fee.

Rest stops have expert medical teams, including – doctors, paramedics, first aiders, podiatrists, & massage services. There’re emergency response teams, safety marshals & ‘Trek Masters’ on the route – with a 24 hr control room just a phone call away. 

The finish line is a celebration, and quite emotional for many after a tough journey. You’ll get a big cheer, a medal, a glass of fizz, a visit to the massage tent or foot clinic, and a welcome BBQ. Memories will be long lasting – perhaps personal goals redefined – and a great sense of achievement.

Full Support

We’ll help everyone prepare for an Ultra Challenge® – with an App, online guides, forums, and training walks. On the day there’s the best support & hospitality you’ll find on any similar styled event – with  camping options, a noisy send off, a fully signed route, chip timing, marquee rest stops, fantastic food & drink, and expert safety, medical, and welfare teams. It’s a big finish line cheer, a medal, a glass of fizz, finishers t shirt, massage, BBQ, and an event to really remember!

Case study...

In 2019 we organised a package for the Ben Charity & their team from BMW on our Thames Bridges Trek, with bespoke hospitality to make their day special.

Step up to an Ultra Challenge – we look forward to welcoming your team in 2022.
