On completion of this trek its back in the saddle for pedal over and across the beautiful Derbyshire Dales countryside and back towards Matlock and your final challenge - just a small matter of an Abseil!!

What is a Level 3.0 Multi Activity Challenge Like?

These challenges are either longer, higher, or span several days. In the case of single day events, you can expect around 8 hours of full on multi activity. In the case of a multi day challenge, you can expect a lower daily duration, but of course the effort is sustained over a longer period. You need to be used to challenging physical exercise for these events, and to enjoy your training, and to do it regularly. Longer duration challenges are likely to be easier in terms of the physical effort, however, you will need to be more resilient due to simple living conditions, i.e. using same clothes for several days, simple food, and maybe camping. This forms an integral part of the challenge.

 

How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 3.0 ‘Multi Activity Challenge’?

You need to have good endurance for these events. You must be used to doing longer days in the outdoors - 7-8 hours. You should be doing regular exercise - with some intense outdoors exercise. You should be used to long rides, long walks, and all round challenging days. You need to have balanced the need for multiple forms of exercise in your training - including some upper body work, and some flexilbility.

 

Medical Issues

Please note, it is extremely important for this physical challenge that you are in good health. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please consider carefully whether you should be joining the challenge. Please ensure you fill in the booking form accurately and honestly, this is important. In the case of serious conditions (epilepsy, diabetes, heart conditions, recent illness or operations), please discuss the challenge with your GP.
