Run, ride, ramble… or ski, scoot or swim your way to resilience!

Build your resilience with the Virtual Resilience Challenge while helping vulnerable young people to build theirs.

Inspired by the resilience our vulnerable young people develop over their time on the Youth Adventure Trust programme, we’re challenging you to take on 25km, 65km, 100km or even a mighty 200km this February Half Term from Saturday 19 to Sunday 27 February 2022.

Choose your challenge – run, ride, ramble, or even ski, scoot or swim your way to resilience… pick one activity, or a mix, or do something else – it’s your challenge!

Choose your own distance – 25km, 65km, 100km or stride out to 200km either in a day or across the week – you can complete it outside or use indoor exercise kit.

Go at your own pace – complete the distance on your own, with a pet, or recruit your friends or family as a team to conquer the distance together

Bespoke medal – to reward your resilience we’ll send you a bespoke medal when you’ve raised over £25

Prizes – we’ll be awarding The North Face prizes to those of you who push challenge boundaries in the following categories: highest team fundraiser, highest individual fundraiser, and furthest distance, and special photo categories: best adventure, best team and best pet adventurer

The Resilience Challenge has given us a focus for our walks and a target to aim for. It has pushed us to walk further, to go outside despite the wind and the rain. Our hallway is covered in muddy footprints, the washing machine has been on the go all week but our cheeks are rosy and the children are happy.

We’re asking everyone who takes on the Resilience Challenge to raise funds to match the kilometers you’ll cover – and once you’ve signed up and started fundraising, you’ll be in with the chance to win some exclusive prizes!

Every penny you raise will help vulnerable young people build their resilience by getting outdoors and challenging themselves in the school holidays with the Youth Adventure Trust. It will also help us to offer them the one to one support they need more than ever, as they navigate the pandemic as well as the other challenges in their lives.

We are delighted to be running this year’s Resilience Challenge in partnership with Outside & Active

We are excited to have The North Face supporting this year’s Resilience Challenge with prizes and goodies for all participants
