Over £650,000 raised since the first challenge in 2013

The Welcome Break Nine Hour Challenge is an invitation only challenge to raise vital funds for Children in Need.

When and where is it ...

The date of the Welcome Break Nine Hour Challenge is Saturday 23rd September 2017, with arrival at the Low Wood Bay Hotel in Ambleside on Friday evening (22nd September) and departure on Sunday (24th September).  

How much does it cost to take part ... 

The minimum fundraising or donation commitment for Children in Need is set out in your invitation but otherwise there is no entry fee as all the costs of the Challenge are being covered by Welcome Break. You can therefore reassure your supporters that every pound raised will go to help disadvantaged children in the UK and that they are not paying for your luxury weekend break!

What's included ...

Included in the entry to the Challenge are the guided routes, lunch and food stops, use of a mountain bike if you don't wish to bring your own, congratulatory drinks at the finish and a celebration dinner afterwards. 

Also included is shared twin room bed and breakfast accommodation at the Low Wood Bay Hotel for the Friday and Saturday nights.

How do I sign up ...

If you've been invited to take part, you will be sent a link to sign up for the Challenge.
