Wye Valley Challenge - Charity trek details

Walk, jog or run above meandering rivers, past ancient cathedrals, and reach exquisite viewpoints including the Devil’s Pulpit as you take on the Wye Valley Challenge. Join 2,000 fellow fundraisers of all ages and experience a rewarding weekend to remember.

Starting in Chepstow, you will venture through woodlands and across the limestone cliffs of the Wye Gorge, with the magical twisting riverside path passing Tintern Abbey en-route to Ross-on-Wye, the halfway mark. You will climb Capler Hill to the Iron Age fort and traverse above the river, before Hereford's cathedral comes into view and a welcome finish line after an amazing 100km journey.

Whether you're new to endurance events, a keen walker or even a marathon runner looking to up the distance, the journey will be unforgettable. With the right training and determination anyone can take on the Wye Valley, so join us for a real challenge in 2018.

You will get full support and hospitality along the way, so you can focus on your challenge!

How do I register to complete this challenge?

The challenge is run by Action Challenge and you should register directly with them. During registration you can choose to fundraise for Help for Heroes. If you do, we will be notified automatically and will be in touch. If you’ve already registered and have subsequently chosen to fundraise in aid of Help for Heroes, please click the ‘Register Your Fundraising’ button on the left to let us know. We’d love to welcome you to our team!

Where does my fundraising go?

Half of your fundraising target (dependent on the distance you choose) needs to be received by the Charity no later than eight weeks before the challenge. This covers the cost of your participation in the challenge.

Anything you fundraise over this amount is the money that Help for Heroes can use to provide lifelong support to our wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel, Veterans and their loved ones.

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!

It’s not just about sponsorship from friends and family. You can plan events throughout the build-up to your ride to help boost your fundraising total.
