You too could take part in the Youth Adventure Trust's Virtual Resilience Challenge.
If you’re looking to keep fit and active during Lockdown you can take part wherever you are on any day this February Half Term. Inspired by the resilience our vulnerable young people develop over their time on the Youth Adventure Trust programme, we’re challenging you to ride, run or ramble 25km, 65km or 100km from Saturday 13 to Sunday 21 February 2021.
Choose your challenge – ride, run or ramble your way to resilience… pick to do one, two or all three disciplines, or do something else – it’s your challenge!
Choose your own distance – 25km, 65km or 100km either in a day or across the week – stay local please, lap your garden or use indoor exercise kit.
Go at your own pace – complete the distance on your own, with a pet, or recruit your household/support bubble as a team to conquer the distance together.
Bespoke medal – to reward your resilience we’ll send you a bespoke medal when you’ve raised over £25
Prizes – we’ll be awarding prizes to those of you who push challenge boundaries in the following categories: highest fundraiser (ride, run & ramble), best adventure photo, best team photo and best pet adventurer photo
Ride, run or ramble your way to resilience. Build your resilience with the Virtual Resilience Challenge while helping vulnerable young people to build theirs.
What is the Youth Adventure Trust?
The Youth Adventure Trust helps vulnerable young people from Wiltshire and Swindon aged 11-16 years old unlock their potential and lead positive lives in the future. The Youth Adventure Programme, which spans 3 school years, is a genuinely life changing opportunity, giving young people the chance to build resilience, develop confidence and learn skills that will last a lifetime.
Since 1992 it has helped over 3,900 vulnerable young people, providing more than 27,000 activity days. It broadens the horizons of young people who otherwise are unlikely to experience such valuable opportunities. There are no financial barriers to taking part as the programme is entirely free of charge to all the young people, their families and the organisations who nominate them to take part.

We went to the races in March. It was a meeting with 10 races, 8 riders in each. It wasn’t at Epsom, or Haydock Park, or just up the M4 at Newbury. It was, of all places, in Wanborough Village Hall.more
