When: 11- 12 August 2018

Where: Chepstow to Hereford

Walk, jog or run the Wye Valley 100km challenge from Chepstow to Hereford. From Chepstow you'll pass through beautiful countryside, past historic castles and hill top forts. Action Challenge will be there supporting you all the way on route. Take a break at a rest stop, grab a drink or simply take in the views. 

If the 100km trek is a bit daunting, then you can chose a 50km or 25km and experience all of the highlights and hospitality as everyone else. 

Whether you take part as an individual or part of a team, we will be there to support you from when you register and all the way to the finish line.

Training and kit

We've teamed up with fitness industry experts Full Potential,to give you training advice and plans to make sure you're ready for the big day. They have also put together a Training Trekking manual which provides useful information to take the stress away from training so you can concentrate on fundraising.  

Fundraising

The first step on your fundraising journey is to set up your JustGiving page. Setting up a JustGiving page is a great way to kick start your fundraising, and keep your sponsors up-to-date with what you’re doing.

Did you know…

  • People who have a JustGiving page raise 50% more money than those who don’t
  • Every time you share your page you’ll earn £5 on average
  • Every time you update your page you can earn £7 on average.

Make the most out of your page by uploading images, posting updates on how your training is going and sharing British Heart Foundation facts so your supporters know why you’re fundraising us.

Why is your fundraising so important?

Before the British Heart Foundation was founded 4 in 5 children born with congenital heart disease died before their first birthday. Today in the UK, thanks to research, 4 in 5 survive into adulthood.
