• Challenge Overview

    On Friday 13th September 2024, you and your team will take on the Housebuilder Challenge 2024 in the glorious surroundings of the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons in Wales! Although we can’t promise sunshine, we can promise glorious scenery and a rewarding experience we are sure you will enjoy.

    All teams will need to register before the challenge so that we can run through a safety and radio briefing with you. All team members need to be present for this! At the end of the hike we will head for a gala dinner and prize giving where teams will celebrate their immense achievement.

    Physically and mentally this is a tough challenge, so you’ll need to be well prepared! When it’s over you will have a huge sense of achievement, both in knowing you have succeeded in completing the challenge but also that your team will have raised £2,000 for the Youth Adventure Trust’s work with vulnerable young people.
