Our top 5 tips for taking on a fundraising challenge: Choose a training plan Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to train for your challenge at your own pace. If you choose to take on a Dream Challenge, they will provide a comprehensive plan to support you on our journey. If you choose to take on a challenge of your own you can create your own training plan or get in touch and we can support you to develop a plan that suits you. Please consult your doctor before undertaking a new programme of physical activity. Get the right equipment You can use our handy kit list to make sure you are prepared for your challenge. Make sure to spend some time trying on different shoe styles to find the best fit for you and bring an extra pair of socks to change into halfway through your challenge - because happy feet equals happy hike! Cross-train Don’t just stick to one exercise, mix it up with a range of different activities. Cross-training will help improve your overall fitness and make the distance feel easier. Prepare for the weather British weather is unpredictable and part of the fun. So make sure you look at the weather forecast and prepare for sun, wind and rain. Our kit list has some key items to help you prepare for this. Recover and re-energise Make sure you drink plenty of water and eat well when completing your challenge and training. Scheduling rest time is just as importing as scheduling training activities, as this reduces the risk of injury and fatigue.
