Starting and finishing at Bath Recreation Ground in the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, the event comprises 2 challenge walks or Marches of 9 and 15 miles including snack stops.

Alternatively, you can take up your own walking challenge like Faith Smith who walked 60 miles along the Kennet and Avon Canal to celebrate her 60th birthday and raise funds for us.
It isn’t just the well known events that make a big difference to us. There are plenty of endurance activities, relaxing walks and muddy adventures to take part in. We partner with Dave Talbot Adventure Events, which organises events as diverse as coastal Californian cycle rides, climbing in the Atlas Mountains, trekking from Santiago de Compostela, 3 peak challenges in Wales and many more. Plan your own unique challenge!
For example, the Brecon Beacons 10-Peak Challenge takes places Sunday 10 April 2021. This will be a beautiful and exhilarating route across the Brecons, with transport to return you to the start point. If you’re interested in taking part and raising funds for Genesis, contact our Fundraising & Events team.
We’re now a registered charity with Discover Adventure – an adventure travel company with fundraising at its heart. From trekking in the Rockies to cycling across Zambia, there’s a challenge out there for you!
