Event information

WaterAid have teamed up with Discover Adventure to provide the ultimate challenge. Cycle the furthest possible distance in the British Isles and help #FinishThirst.

Cycling from Land's End to John o' Groats is a tough challenge, but an awesome way to see the country and a story to tell for years to come.

Starting at Land’s End on the southwesterly tip of England, you'll pedal your way through Cornwall, over Dartmoor then north along the Welsh border, before skirting past the Lake District into Scotland. Join us and together we'll change people's lives for good through clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

The challenge is led by adventure travel experts Discover Adventure. Your fundraising will cover the cost of your challenge, including food and accommodation. Please note you will need to have reached your fundraising target in order to take part in the event.
