EARLY BIRD OFFER: Get 10% discount on your registration fee when you register before 31st October 2017

Originally constructed to defend China against the nomadic tribes, the Great Wall is a thrilling challenge of twists, turns, ups and downs. Beginning 4 hours north of Beijing, our challenge takes us on a series of vigorous upwards climbs of over 10,000 relentless steps over the course of a week. As the days progress we follow the winding path along the mountains that spread either side of the Gubeikou Gateway. Exhaustion will quickly vanish as we are rewarded with sweeping views over the vast mountain ranges.

  • Conquer the imperial masterpiece of the Ming dynasty in support of Cancer Research UK
  • Test yourself against thousands of challenging steps
  • Triumph over the crumbling, twisting pathways of the Yan Mountains
  • Savour the timeless landscapes and time- weathered watchtowers
  • Enjoy the cultural highlights of China's bustling capital city Beijing

The trip departs on 13th October 2018 and returns on 21st October 2018.

We ask that you pledge to raise £3,295. All you pay is the registration fee of £395 - you can even split this into 2 installments to make it easier to pay.

If you wish to reduce your fundraising target, you can become a 'flexi-funder' whereby you pay an extra £500 upon registration to bring your fundraising target down to £2,295.

In order to guarantee your place on the trek we ask that you return 80% of your fundraising 10 weeks prior to the event. But, please don’t worry, we’ve got loads of fundraising tips and support to help you achieve this.

Our mission is to ensure that 3 in 4 people survive cancer by 2034, but we need you to join the fight today. So register now and we will beat cancer.
