Register for this challenge

This beautiful trek along the vermillion coast of the Costa Brava follows in part the Coastal Freedom Trail or ‘Chemin de la Liberté’, a WWII escape route from Nazi-occupied France into Spain. 

The trek offers a huge variety of scenery, following the coast initially before heading inland to cross the border via the Col de Rumplissa, where we see our route in full winding its way along the beautiful, remote coastline - a personal challenge which commemorates the bravery of others.

Where does my fundraising go?
The fundraising we receive beyond this cost covering your target will allow Help for Heroes to continue providing lifelong support to our wounded Servicemen and women. Ideally, we would like your fundraising to have hit £2550 within two weeks of the challenge finishing.

Who organises the Trip?
This is an Open Challenge, meaning anyone can take part, organised and run by our partner Discover Adventure and is a fantastic opportunity to meet different people. All communications, regarding trip registration and logistics are directly with Discover Adventure, whilst Help for Heroes will support you every step of the way with your fundraising.

What will the trekking be like?
Discover Adventure grade their challenges on a spectrum of Yellow, Orange and Red, increasing in difficulty based on distance, terrain, climate etc. Discover Adventure grade this trip as yellow and it is perfect for first time trek challengers.

The Help for Heroes Events Team will work closely with you throughout your fundraising journey and share helpful tips and advice every step of the way. You will receive a comprehensive fundraising guide to help you get started, along with monthly fundraising ideas straight to your inbox!

Although sponsorship from your friends and family is amazing, getting creative and coming up with other ways to fundraise will provide a massive boost to your fundraising. You can do this by planning events throughout the months leading up to your challenge and for three months after the end of it – plenty of time to reach that magic target. Your fundraising journey is all part of the experience, so relish it!

It’s easier if you break your fundraising down into smaller monthly chunks and plan an event or activity for each month to hit that amount.

  • Your first target is £2040 which is due 22/072019. Take this amount and divide it by the number of months you have until that date. You now have your monthly target.
  • Plan how you can make that monthly target. For some great fundraising ideas contact the Help for Heroes Events Team.
  • The rest of you target of £2550 isn’t due until 04/11/2019, two weeks after your return.
