Overseas challenges

Ready for your next challenge? With an overseas event you could complete your next personal best hiking in Iceland, cycling the Golden Coast or following the footsteps of the Incas in Peru. So, what are you waiting for? Fasten your seatbelt, it’s almost time for take-off!

An Asian man with dark glasses wearing a grey beanie hat, blue jacket and grey trousers, stands on top of a mountain holding a white Cystic Fibrosis Trust branded tshirt. He is standing in front of a sign saying 'Mount Kilimanjaro'We know you are taking on a huge challenge and there’s a lot to think about. That’s why we’ve got two very straightforward options for you to choose from when you take part in an overseas trek or cycle with our charity partners Global Adventure Challenges.

Option 1: self-funded

Sign up, pay your registration fee, then fund the rest of the fee yourself. This way you have no minimum sponsorship target to hit, so there is less pressure on you whilst you train!

Option 2: minimum sponsorship

Sign up, pay your registration fee, select us as your chosen charity and we will review your application. Once we are satisfied we have all the information we need, we fund the cost of your challenge in exchange for a pledge to raise a minimum amount for Trust (this can vary from event to event, so please check before you commit). Remember, 80% of your sponsorship is due approximately 12 weeks prior to your departure date.

Now it’s time to choose your challenge!


How would you like to trek through the Grand Canyon or walk along the Great Wall of China? What about taking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or exploring the Sahara Desert? With events in five continents you’ll be spoilt for choice!


Cambodia, Cuba, California, even the Costa Rican coast – wherever you want your next epic cycle to take place, we can guarantee we've got an event that will have oiling your brake cables and pumping your tyres in anticipation.


It’s a fairly safe bet that wherever you choose to venture in this wacky world you won’t go far without stumbling across an iconic marathon. So why not pound the streets of New York or set your personal best in front of the Eiffel Tower?

How we'll help you

We'll send you your Overseas Welcome Pack, introduce you to your team and make sure you have a Fundraising Support Officer and two members of our Events Team just a phone call or email away.

Once you sign up we will ask you some questions about your current level of fitness and lifestyle to deliver a bespoke training solution just for you!


The financial commitment for an overseas challenge can seem a little daunting, but don't worry - we've got you covered. In your welcome pack, we now include a step-by-step guide on the easiest and most effective ways to chip away at your fundraising target so that by the time you come to check in all you have to think about is remembering your passport!
