Conquer the Cotswolds

Multi Activity Adventure

Get ready for an action packed day - Paddle, Trek and Cycle across the beautiful Cotswold Water Park! This itinerary is fully customisable, and you can opt for a different combination.

Located just a stones throw away from Swindon this series of lakes has created an adventurous outdoors playground. Clear lakes, beautiful scenery and a wildlife haven makes this a unique location to test yourself on this multi activity challenge. Our day begins by Canoe on one of the Water Park's 150 plus lakes. Once off the water you will then depart by bike on flat roads through the beautiful Cotswold countryside passing traditional Cotswold villages. Finally we finish with an Orienteer negotiating negotiating the maze of lakes the Water Park is made up of. This promises to be great day.

What is a Level 3.5 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 8-10 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 3.5 ‘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.
