Why choose
classic challenge?

Classic Challenge have grown and adapted with the charity event market as it has evolved over the past few years.  We are constantly re-evaluating our events and destinations to see how we can offer the best possible experience to our participants and charity partners.


At Classic Challenge we’ve been leading the way in charity challenges since originating the concept in 1992. Over the last 25 years, more than £100 million has been raised for hundreds of charities by individuals, teams and companies.

Some 65,000 people have cycled, trekked, run, climbed mountains and ridden horses in all corners of the globe while taking part in a life-changing challenge.


Classic Challenge isn’t just about box ticking adventures.  We create bold, bespoke, life-changing adventures all over the world for charities and individuals.  We do travel to some of the world’s top sites in our ‘classic’ itineraries but can also stretch you well beyond your comfort zone to new destinations to really push yourselves.


Classic Challenge is comprised of a small team of dedicated and passionate individuals who strive to give you the best possible experience from the point of booking right through to crossing that finish line (and the celebration after). We pride ourselves on our customer service and honest and approachable manner with charities, participants and suppliers. We are always on hand in the build up to your challenge whether you need a quick chat to check your kit list or to chat through airport drop off logistics, we are always here and happy to help in any way we can be it big or small!


We are always updating our guidelines and risk assessments with up to date information given by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) and relay any advice given to our participants.  We also ensure that all of our participants depart with valid and destination and activity appropriate travel insurance making sure you are as safe as you can be once in country.
