  1. What are the 2019 challenge costs?

    Details below are for 2019 and will be updated for 2020.

    The Team will be staying at the amazing 4* Hilton Charlemont hotel, in the centre of all that Dublin has to offer; the location is perfect! The basic package is 3 nights from Friday 25 to Monday 28 October 2019, however, if you wish to extend your stay to explore some more then this is possible! You can also upgrade to a Deluxe bedroom, if you wish to do so - please see details and costs below.

    Walkers Full Package

    Deposit (non-refundable) £280




    Your friends and family are welcome to join the Team and support us over the 26.2 miles, plus enjoy all the delights that are included in this Dublin weekend. Please be aware, as a Charity and first and foremost our places must go to Walker who are fundraising for us. Please get in touch with the Unique Challenges Team and they will be happy to help. 

    Please note: The cost of your package has been calculated at the time of the event launch in March 2019. Due to the possible fluctuations in the financial market, for this year and the value of the GBP against the Euro, please be aware that should the exchange rate fluctuate above 3% on the cost of the challenge, the charity will, unfortunately, be forced to pass on any increase in costs (or reduce your costs for any decrease if applicable). The final price will be confirmed to you prior to the Final Balance being due, any costs below 3% will be covered by Walk the Walk in Action and will not be passed on. The charity will aim to avoid any additional costs, however, the fluctuations of currency are out of our control and therefore an increase in price may be applied.
