Fantastic charity challenge events for the local community!

As well as providing charity challenges and expeditions across the UK and overseas, we also love to provide events for the local community and local charities.

This year we have the pleasure of organising the Erddig 10K on behalf of the National Trust Erddig Estate charity and the ‘Lights Out Moel Famau WW1 Centenary Walk’ in aid of the Royal British Legion.

These are great opportunities for people in the local community to take part in something fun and challenging whilst raising money for local charities. It is also a fantastic way for companies and work colleagues to do something active and enjoyable together outside of the work environment and all for a great cause.

If you are in the local North Wales/Cheshire area and fancy taking part in a charity challenge why not sign up to our local events today!

Lights Out Moel Famau

 ‘Lights Out’ is an invitation by the Royal British Legion to commemorate World War One by encouraging everyone in the UK to turn off their lights between 10pm and 11pm on 4th of August 2014 – leaving only a single light or candle for this symbolic act of reflection and hope.

The North Wales Poppy Appeal are inviting people in the local area to take part in the ‘Lights Out’ campaign in a unique and special way by joining them for an evening’s walk up Moel Famau on August the 4th in aid of the Royal British Legion.

Participants will begin the walk up Moel Famau at 9.30pm, climbing the hill as the sun sets and reaching the Jubilee Tower at the top of Moel Famau for 10:15pm. There will then be a ceremony where all torches will be turned off to replicate the ‘black out’ during the First World War, followed by a 2 minute silence to reflect & remember the more than a million Commonwealth Service men and women who lost their lives in the First World War. Torches will then be turned on again to signify the new hope, before the group start to make their way down Moel Famau arriving at the bottom before midnight.

Erddig 10K

Following the success of last year’s event, we are happy to announce we will be returning to the beautiful location of the Erddig Estate on Sunday 14th September for the Erddig 10K!

With three running options including the 10K, 5K and 2km Fun Run, it’s a great event for all levels and a fantastic event to do as a family. Each runner will receive a goody bag and free entry for themselves and one other to the Erddig Estate Gardens, so you can make it in to a lovely day out for the family!

So whether it will be your first 5K, or you are a seasoned runner looking to beat your Personal Best, this is a fantastic running event to be enjoyed in stunning surroundings.

£2.50 from every entry goes to the Erddig Estate charity.
