“You have not lived if you have not been to the Great Wall”, or so the Chinese saying goes, and it’s not surprising why!

Please note: various dates are available.

The Great Wall of China Trek is a fantastic charity challenge hiking for five days along this magnificent man-made structure. The challenge takes you over watch towers and mountains, through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections during this challenge where you’ll feel the Great Wall is for you only, with no-one else in sight. Rest assured, the Great Wall of China provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.

The trek is lead by Global Adventure Challenges, and exclusive to their tour you will "lend a hand" repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. You will each place your brick in this newly restored section, ensuring our own place in the Great Wall of China! Memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Fundraising Options Explained:

Option A:

Raising a Minimum Sponsorship: You pay the non-refundable Registration Fee to Global Adventure Challenges. In addition, you then commit to raising the minimum sponsorship as shown. You send the sponsorship money to your chosen charity as you raise it. 80% of the minimum sponsorship MUST be received by the charity no later than 11 weeks before departure. Failure to do so may mean non-participation in the challenge. Your chosen charity will decide when the remaining 20% should be received - this is a normally a couple of weeks after your return to the UK. Proof of pledges may be required. The balance of the challenge costs will be paid for you by your charity out of the sponsorship raised. Please do try and raise as much as you can, as every penny you raise over the minimum sponsorship will be retained by your charity too. Please note, you will also be required to contribute towards the cost of Airport Taxes and Fuel Surcharge (if applicable)

Option B:

Self-Funding: You pay the non-refundable Registration Fee to Global Adventure Challenges. 10 weeks before departure, you will receive an invoice to pay the challenge balance. This is in addition to the Registration Fee and is to be paid no later than 8 weeks prior to departure. Although there is no minimum sponsorship target, you are encouraged to raise as much as possible for your charity should you choose to fundraise. Please note, you will also be required to contribute towards the cost of Airport Taxes and Fuel Surcharge (if applicable).
