Congratulations Trekkers!

Congratulations to our New Year Killi Climbers! 

As the sun dawned on a new day and year on the morning 1st January 2015 - our group of 25 intrepid trekkers successfully reached the summit of Kilimanjaro - seeing in the New Year from a different perspective! 

New Year Kili News Story


After setting off from London on boxing day - opting for fresh air and trekking over another box of Quality Street and Dr Who re-runs - our group took on the 6 day Machame route up to the summit. Blessed with good weather and great views of the summit it is an experience not to be forgotten.

 "I loved every second and never had a down moment. I doubt I will ever top this!"

If perhaps you have the January blues and are keen to take on Africa's tallest mountain to see in the next New Year - sign up to our 2016 New Year summit!

We would like to extend a huge congratulations to all of our 509 Isle of Wight Challengers who took on the island over the bank holiday weekend -  and made the weekend one we will never forget! For it's first year the Isle of Wight Challenge can be described as our toughest challenge yet - but also one of our most stunning! We are completely in awe at the determination and sense of spirit everyone showed - and for many it was their longest challenge yet!

 We are excited to announce that for 2015 the Isle of Wight Challenge will take place over the May bank holiday weekend - 2nd - 3rd May so get it in your diaries now. We have partnered with the Isle of Wight walking festival, and have many exciting ideas about how we will be looking to grow the challenge!From Nick Barwick who took just an incredible 12 hours and 8 minutes to run the challenge and was first to cross the finish line - to our other challengers who took a bit longer, some out on the course for a staggering 36 hours - we think you are all winners.
