It is the duty of both organisers and participants in challenge
events that take place in the countryside and wild, remote areas to demonstrate
a responsibility and respect for other users of these resources and also to
those who's responsibility it is to manage and maintain them.
This is particularly relevant for charities who are members of the Institute of Fundraising (and/or their event organisers) who have a
responsibility to ensure that their event abides by the standards set in the Codes thus helping to maintain public trust and confidence along
with the sustainability of fundraising for all.
Global Challenge UK run mountain challenge events strictly within
the Institute of Fundraising's code of practice, a copy of which is available
from their website at www.institute-of-fundraising.org.uk.
Some of its principal points are as follows:
- Maximum of 200 Participants
- Contact and consult all landowners
- Avoid Bank Holidays
- No activity in populated areas between midnight & 0500
- Liaise with other organisations to avoid clashes
- Provide adequate facilities at all locations
- Use experienced guides in all locations
Global Challenge UK are also members of the Fundraising Standards Board which ensures charities who work with us know that we are committed to
best practices with regards to all of the current UK Outdoor Event codes of conduct.
Traditional 3 Peaks events climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and
Snowdon are extremely popular and GCUK are more than happy to organise this
traditional Challenge on your behalf. As an alternative, GCUK can organise your Three
Mountain Challenge using different peaks that still offer a significant
physical test and a memorable event. This has the benefit of offering an
alternative event for those who have already taken part in a classic three
peaks event and are looking for something different. It also relieves the
environmental pressure on the popular three peak's mountains. For a typical
Three Mountain Challenge go to Typical Events.
The staff of Global Challenge UK are all keen outdoor enthusiasts
and responsibility is a by-word in the planning and management of all of our
