Merrell teams up with Action Challenge!
We have teamed up with Action Challenge, a group of International Challenge Event Organisers, that have a variety of challenges available; sometimes tough, often life changing, usually unforgettable, and always rewarding.
Action Challenge prides itself on offering a high quality experience for walkers and runners. Each event is split into a four stage course with major rest stops at every 25km and check points at every 12.5km where drink and energy snacks are provided. In addition:
• Every route is fully signed – with maps and GPS downloads provided
• There is a tented village at each start-line providing aerobic warm-up and refreshments
• Hot food stops are provided at 50km, 75km,100km stops
• Support walkers, masseurs, medics are provided along each route
So, whether it's climbing Kilimanjaro with some friends, walking the 100km to Brighton overnight with 3000 other adventurers, cycling 1000km from Lands End to John O'Groats, or as part of a speeding peloton heading out from London to reach Paris within 24 hours – Action Challenge will have the challenge for you!
