Challenge Overview

Who wants to spend the day stuck behind your desk or networking in conference halls when you could be out in the hills? We know where we’d rather be! Hike Bike Paddle is THE industry challenge for anybody working in the sports and outdoor sector. An epic team challenge made up of 3 elements: a hike [usually up a mountain], a bike [off and on road] and a team Stand Up Paddle board to cool you off.

Teams from across the sports and outdoors sectors will take on a spectacular route through the mountains of one of the UK’s most iconic national parks (2024 location TBC). Teams will enjoy stunning views (weather permitting!) from some of the most iconic mountains in the UK.

Hike – Approximately 5-6 hours

Bike – Approximately 3 – 4 hours (on and off road)

Paddle – 2km lake course on a giant stand up paddle board!

Places are limited and filling up fast, so register your interest with Philippa today.

  • Teams

    We recommend teams of 4-8 people who can either enter the whole challenge or do the event as a relay (minimum numbers on each section will apply). You will need to ensure that at least two members can navigate with a map and compass and it’s definitely best if a couple of you are able to swim. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a team – you can still take part and we will team you up. You will be timed and yes there are prizes!

  • Accommodation

    We suggest participants plan to stay on the night before the challenge, as it is an early start on the challenge day! There will also be a prize giving and celebration after the challenge so we recommend booking 2 nights accommodation. We have put together a list of some of our favourites which we will share with you once your team is registered.

  • Entry Fee

    It costs £500 + VAT for a team of up to 6 people to take part;you will be invoiced upon registration. There is a discounted rate for returning teams available. We also have a number of partnership opportunities available so if you are interested in free entry, brand exposure and some fantastic content then take a look to see if any would suit you. In addition, you will need to cover your own travel, food and accommodation costs, as well as bike hire if you require this.
