Surviving is no easy business out there in the wilderness.
The Bear Grylls Survival Race and outdoor festival is a fun-packed adventure day for all the family.
Participants aged between 4 and 13 years will make their way through jungle, desert, mountain, and arctic conditions, all in the space of one day! Of course, we’ve scaled the adventure down, so it’s suitable for all young ‘Bear’ cubs out there.
The race obstacles are designed to challenge the kids but none of it is compulsory to complete. So toss away those mobile phones and tablets, it’s time for an adventure into the unknown!
The course consists of natural and purpose-built obstacles, with approximately:
800m - 1km course for 4-7 y/o
1.5 - 2km course for 8-10 y/o
2.5 - 3km course for 11-13 y/o

One small plane in the sky. One giant leap from the plane for humanity!
Take on the exhilarating challenge of soaring from 10,000 ft on a Tandem Skydive and as you freefall at 120 mph towards the ground remember one thing… you’re doing this for a good cause, for the best cause in fact, for the advancement of impoverished individuals around the world.
No need to be nervous, we hear they have parachutes!
Raised the minimum sponsorship? You’ll get to jump for FREE!
Three Peaks Challenge

Location: Snowdon, Scafell Pike, and Ben Nevis
Three massive mountains, three extraordinary peaks and just 24 hours to conquer the lot!
The three mountains are of course Snowdon, Scafell Pike, and Ben Nevis, the highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland.
With Humanitas Charity not only will you get a crack at standing atop all these peaks in the same 24 hour period, but as you gaze down from each summit you’ll know your personal achievement will help achieve so much for the vulnerable people we support around the world.
As if that wasn’t enough, your £325 registration fee also includes return travel from London / Hitchin, travel between the mountains, a fully qualified guide, overnight accommodation in North Wales, navigation equipment, and a finisher’s t-shirt you can show off to your friends back home!
The three biggest mountains in England, Scotland, and Wales? It’s all in a day’s work.

In these magnificent surroundings, we combine exciting safari drives with a challenging marathon route going right through the habitat of the most famous African game: Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard.

Marathon des Sables 2019
Entry: £3950 – including flights
Min sponsorship: £3000
AN EXTRAORDINARY RACE
FOR EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE
IN AN EXTRAORDINARY PLACE
The Marathon des Sables is the stuff of legends. It is the Toughest Footrace on Earth.
We’re not kidding. You take this on, you go down as a Humanitas LEGEND.
That’s because MdS is a gruelling multi-stage adventure through a mythical landscape in one of the world’s most inhospitable environments – the Sahara desert.
In just six days you will run over 250km (156 miles) through endless dunes, over rocky jebels, and across white-hot salt plains. The sun will be your constant enemy with temperatures regularly reaching 50 centigrade. The sand will be your constant companion, clouds of it under your feet, sheets of it stinging your eyes and lots of it chafing where it shouldn’t!
The Long Stage has become a legend in itself. You will run out on a Saharan morning, though the day, on into dusk, and then into the dark, with many runners not finishing the 80+km (52 miles) until well into the next day.
Your feet will swell, crack, and bleed under the pressure and the heat. But none of that will matter when you cross the finishing line - a Humanitas Hero.
