Description

BEN NEVIS

Join us for this fantastic opportunity to take a guided walk to the roof of Scotland – Ben Nevis (1345m). A truly unique opportunity to join a like-minded group, get active and savour the wide expansive views across Scotland from the highest mountain in the UK.

Our team will meet you outside the Glen Nevis Visitor centre in Fort William. You will receive a brief on the event before we begin this incredible experience.

WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

This event will appeal to everyone from seasoned adventurers to Sunday hikers. This is an ideal walk for anyone who would like to summit the highest mountain in the UK whilst being fully guided by our team of qualified mountain leaders.  The walk is aimed at all experience levels however, you will need to be reasonably fit to ensure your own enjoyment and that of the group as the trip will take around 9 hours.

WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED:

  • Travel to and from the start location
  • Personal Insurance
  • Accommodation before/after the event

YOU WILL NEED TO BRING:

  • Suitable walking boots (with ankle support)
  • Appropriate clothing for the walk
  • Waterproof Jacket and trousers
  • Spare warm layer
  • Hat and gloves
  • Food, snacks and water (minimum 1.5 litre’s) for the walk

YOUR CHARITY:

If you’re fundraising you’ll confirm which charity you’re supporting via a drop down menu. Be careful to pick the correct one. Once your place on this event has been booked, your contact details will be passed to your chosen charity so that they can support you in your fundraising efforts.

CHARITY FUNDRAISING DEADLINES:

All sponsorship goes direct to the Charity via your online JustGiving page. At least 50% of the sponsorship target should be with the Charity 3 weeks prior to the Challenge. At this time the Charity pays a Fee for your place to the Organiser (similar to the Self Funding cost – or half of it for Mixed Funding as you’ve already covered half). Failure to meet the deadline may result in cancellation by your charity. The remaining 50%, and any extra, should be with your Charity no later than 4 weeks after the Challenge.

PLEASE NOTE:

The walk will take place in most weathers but the leader will reserve final judgement on the day (in most cases) and maintains the right to abandon any walk if they feel the safety of themselves or any participant is at risk.

FAQ’S:

WHAT WILL I RECEIVE ONCE I REGISTER?IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?CAN I CHOOSE A CHARITY NOT LISTED?CAN I FUNDRAISE FOR TWO CHARITIES?WHEN WILL I HEAR FROM MY CHARITY?
You will receive a receipt via email, along with a Confirmation Email welcoming you onto the challenge detailing our exclusive Facebook group and letting you know where to find all the information you will need for your challenge. If you don’t receive this within 48 hours, please check your spam/junk mail folders and pop us a message using the contact form.
Yes you must be 18 or over on the day of the challenge if signing up alone or 16+ & accompanied by a legal guardian.

Under 18s taking part cannot sign themselves up – they must be signed up by someone over 18.

If there is a charity you would like to fundraise for that does not appear on our list, we ask that you speak with your preferred Charity about what you would like to, and ask them to register with us via our short contact form which can be found on our website page www.eliteadventures.co.uk/charityregistration

Once they’ve registered with us, it will take about 5-7 working days to add them onto our registration forms, and you can then sign up to your chosen challenge in aid of them.

We are happy to contact the charity on your behalf, please let us know the charity name, website, contact details (phone number and/or email) and the challenge you wish to take on.

Alternatively you can Self Fund your place and fundraise for them independently with no fundraising commitment.

Please note: the above is relevant for Charity Sponsorship or Mixed Funding places only. If you are entering as a Self Funder you can fundraise for any charity of your choice (only if you want to) & we do not need to be informed.

If you are entering on a Charity Sponsorship or Mixed Funding place then NO – you must select one prime charity for your fundraising, and they must be registered with us. This is because your charity will be paying for a portion of your place on the event (out of the fundraising that you generate). If you wish to also fundraise for another charity, you can do so on your own terms but only as long as you reach the minimum fundraising target your first/prime charity.

If you join as a Self Funder however, you have complete flexibility on who you fundraise for – with no targets or deadlines, and no cost to those charities.

If you have chosen to fundraise for a charity, we will pass your details over to them and you can expect to hear from them within 14 days. If for some reason you do not hear from your charity after this time, please contact them directly or email [email protected]
