Challenge events

You could help us change young lives forever. You could do something amazing by raising money from the things you love to do. Or the things you’ve always wanted to try, but never quite plucked up the courage.

This could be the year you ran faster, cycled further or experienced more than you thought you could, and by doing it in aid of YHA you’ll be making a tangible difference to young lives. Take a look at the different ways you could get involved on one of our charity challenge events this year…

Great north swim

The most iconic open water swim in the UK is a great one for outdoor lovers, as it’s slap bang in the middle of the Lake District. You can dry off at YHA Ambleside, one of our finest hostels, with stunning views over Lake Windermere.
