Welcome to Challenge Central

Ordinary people doing extraordinary things, together


What We Do

Challenge Central takes great pride in helping ordinary people do extraordinary things together.


To us, challenges are about finishing what you started, overcoming personal boundaries and enjoying the adventure with the camaraderie of others.


Our mission is to share our love of challenges and help more people push their limits to achieve something special.


Our Challenges:


As well as our scheduled events, we also provide customised trips for groups, companies and charities.


We can adapt all aspects of our adventures to suit the requirements of any group and we can also organise a number of other trekking and cycling challenges on request.

All of our challenges are underpinned with the ethos of participation for all and pushing the individual limits, no matter how big or small.


Our events are more than just physical challenges. We have worked hard to ensure our itineraries maximise enjoyment allowing a great social enviroment to all our adventures.
