Jenny Morgan on behalf of team MADBIRDSANDGORDON | Team Challenge Participant | 3 Peaks Challenge

I would just like to say THE BIGGEST thank you to absolutely everyone who made the 3 Peaks Challenge possible. It was simply the best event I have ever been involved with. The organisation was just amazing.  Although I, along with the rest of my team, feel like we've been in a car crash this morning, we enjoyed the weekend and will carry the memory of it for many years to come, so much so we are talking of doing it again! Thanks to you all.

Trudy Hurst | Team Challenge Participant | Race the Sun

"Please pass on our thanks to the whole team involved with Race the Sun. What a fantastic day, the challenge was gruelling and that last 15 miles of the cycle felt nearly impossible at times, but we did it. A very well-considered course that had everything a challenge should have. Our team is so awed by the whole thing we are already discussing the possibilities for next year. The organisation was unlike anything I had experienced before from the marshalling to the provision of food, drinks and even a bike mechanic! Thank you again."

Piers Stone | Overseas Cycle Participant | REGAIN Cycle Challenges

"I have participated in five Action for Charity events - cycling across Kenya, China, Egypt, Vietnam and France in support of the charity Regain. Each adventure has been very challenging both physically and mentally, but it’s a remarkable way of raising money for others in a way that provides one with unforgettable, awesome experiences every time. Thank you to Action for Charity for their efficiency and for making each event such a well-organised success. Keep up the good work!"

Stephen Arnott | Overseas Trek Participant | Mount Kilimanjaro Trek 2013

A once in a lifetime experience. Thank you Dream Challenges for your superb organisation and for turning a dream into reality. Given that only 50% of climbers ever makes it to the summit, it says masses, that thanks to your impeccable preperations and exemplary support team that you had a 97% success rate, with a mixed ability group ranging in age from 16-63. I won't be doing it again! But wouldn't have missed the opportunity to do it once for anything.

Piers Meadow | Meadows Recruitment | Ben Nevis Charity Challenge

I just wanted to feedback what a wonderful weekend the last one in Fort William was.  There has been a real buzz in the office this week from those that took part, and they are all saying they want to do another one next year! Thanks very much for the organisation – you were all great.   The food was great, all the staff and marshals were helpful and friendly as well as able to give us a little shove too! See you next year, when we are fitter and up for posting a more competitive time!

Jos Morgan | Overseas Cycle Participant | Big Heart Bike Ride Africa

 South Africa was fantastic, another brilliant, funny, crazy group of people from all walks of life. Everyone there for different reasons, but all in the same boat, supporting each other, making lifelong friendships, being equally astounded by the capabilities and determination of our tetra riders. Once again, the routes we took each day were amazing, scenic, challenging, out of the ordinary. The group trials, tribulations, triumphs and experience bond you in a way that it is difficult to explain unless you have done it and there is invariably a rather strange down period on the return…..but always the knowledge that there will be another one to sign up for. See you in Cambodia! 

Larry Hughes | Overseas Cycle Participant | Big Heart Bike Ride India

In 2006 I stepped into the unknown and signed up for the first BHBR, the experience changed my life and those who cycled with me, since then I have cycled through Rajasthan and across the Sinai helping raise funds and awareness in the fight against heart disease. More than 100 people have taken part so far and I asked them how they would describe the event in just one word, here are just a few of them… exhilarating, incredible, achievement, pride, adventure, camaraderie, fantastic, fulfilling, brilliant, amazing, triumph, love, laughter and tears. For me the word would be memories and nobody can take them away. 

Paul Dibden | Overseas Cycle Participant | Big Heart Bike Ride Jordan

The Big Heart Bike Ride is a tremendous opportunity to challenge yourself whilst raising money to help fight heart disease. I have taken part in four Big Heart Bike Rides and they have all been exhilarating experiences, which have left me with fantastic memories and lifelong friendships. Jordan here I come!  

Ruth Boreham | Overseas Trek Participant | Britain V Cancer Hike the Himalayas

 I trekked in the Himalayas, reaching Poon Hill (3210m) to see sunrise over the Annapurna Mountains.  One of the most beautiful views I have ever seen.  But also the hardest physical challenge I have ever done. I did it thanks to the fantastic people I was with and also the thought of fundraising for such amazing charities – Children of Songea and Children 1st. 

Jennifer Downie | Overseas Trek Participant | Britain V Cancer Great Wall of China

 I still don't think what we have all achieved has sunk in. So proud of each and everyone one of us! It was an absolute pleasure to share this amazing experience with you all couldn't have asked for a better group. 

Emily Wallwork | Overseas Cycle Participant | Cycle Cuba

The trip to Cuba was amazing, I am still smiling every time I think about it.  I thought it was all so well organised.  All the staff were great, from Dream Challenges, Regain and Cubania.  I'm just sad it’s over. I keep looking at my pictures to help my holiday blues. 

Rod Mearing | Overseas Trek Participant | Lets Trek for Children in India

The trek was a wonderful experience with a lovely group of people.  I think the key factor that made the whole thing feel relaxed was that the organisation was seamless. The crew did an amazing job of waking people, collecting and delivering bags and making sure that the only thing we had to concentrate on was getting ourselves from A to B through some spectacularly beautiful scenery. I was very proud to raise £4,732 for my chosen charity Childhood First 

Gareth Wolstencroft & James Donald | Overseas Trek Participant | Mount Kilimanjaro Trek

Just wanted to post a big thank you to all you guys for making this such an amazing trip for me. It would definitely not have been the same without you all! I had the best 2 weeks and owe all of it to you. Thanks very much and I can't wait for the reunion!

 Thanks to Dream Challenges for all that you have done to make this challenge happen. It was the most incredible experience and we have made lifelong friends. I will never forget it.  

Dawn Sephton | Overseas Trek Participant | Trek Jordan

I would just like to say what an amazing experience it was and I am constantly boring my family and friends with tales of our trek and none of them can believe that I slept out under the stars, given my phobia of creepy crawlies!! Although I found it difficult at times and much harder than I was anticipating, I felt a real sense of achievement when we finished at Petra. I met some lovely people and the memories will always stay with me. I would just like to thank Dream Challenges and all their team in Jordan for all the organisation and support from the minute we arrived at Heathrow until the time we landed back

“I had a fantastic time, and I am really, really pleased I completed the ride. With 2,000 women riding together showing such grit and determination, how can you not feel great about this event?
“I must admit I am aching all over and there were times when I felt like giving up, but I had two great women riding with me and we helped each other get to the end.”
