Turn your goals into challenges and do some good: Trekstock's upcoming competitions

January is coming to an end, it’s dreary outside and the gym is already losing it’s appeal… fear not!

It’s time to set yourself some achievable goals and there is no better way to do this than to use physical challenges and competitions.

Trekstock, a fantastic charity that works with young adults with cancer (more details here) has some great events coming up where you can challenge yourself, meet some cool people and do some good. It’s time to grab your mates, colleagues, friends, family and sign up!

Using a physical challenge to help motivate you to hit the gym is proven to be one of the best ways to stay in the game. A kilo here or an inch there are nice goals but it’s even more fun to use a competitive goal and work towards it - the health- and physical benefits happen along the way!

If you are training towards a physical challenge, race, competition or to master a specific movement, get in touch and we can talk about designing a program to get you there.

Here are the details, direct from the team at Trekstock:

March 16th


Reach new heights by racing to the top of London’s impressive Broadgate Tower to support young adults with cancer. Conquer The Tower will see you and your team climb 35 floors and 877 steps, to a panoramic view of London. We would love this year’s climb on the 16th of March to be bigger and better than ever to celebrate our tenth anniversary! Check out their site for more details and let me know if you want to set up a team to join in.

I’ll be in charge of the competitors warm ups again this year! - Grace

April 26-28th


Our Jurassic Coast trek is a tough one day challenge which will have you trekking 30km along the stunning South West Coast Path. Whilst the distance alone would make this a tough challenge, the nature of the undulating terrain will have you ascending over 1700m of ascent, greater than climbing to the summit of Ben Nevis! The team at Trekstock have all signed up to mark our tenth anniversary and we’d love you to join us. We have full and half trek options available. Check out the site for details.

May 11th


Challenge your colleagues, customers and friends to join us on a 10-mile urban trek around London. Use your best map skills to hike around key sites for your business, iconic landmarks or the steepest inclines. We can help tailor your urban trek specifically for you - or you can join Trekstock’s 10th anniversary route. It will be a motivating, team building, PR-able fundraising challenge. Your steps could help change lives. Check out the site for more details.

Let’s do it!
