  1. What are the 2020 challenge costs?

    The total challenge cost for 2020 is £3,590 (Costs remain the same as in 2019!)

    Challenge Deposit: £420 

    The cost is based on 2 people sharing a twin room* and dormitories on the trail itself (single room not available).


    Please Note: The cost of your package has been calculated at the time of the event launch in May 2019. Due to the possible fluctuations in the financial market, for the forthcoming year (2020) and the value of the GBP against the US Dollar, 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 fluctuations of currency are out of our control, we will keep you informed of any changes.

    *In the event that the ratio of female/male applicants does not match the availability of twin rooms, a single room supplement will apply.
