Challenge Yourself

Why not do something amazing, challenge yourself, get fit or boost your adrenaline for a good cause?

From skydiving to half marathons to fire walking, we have a range of exciting challenges to help raise money to keep us flying! 

Bath Half Marathon 2017

The ‘Bath Half’ is one of the longest established and most popular city centre road events in the UK. It is also the largest charity fundraising event in the South West region, raising over £2.1 million for charity in 2015 alone!

The course itself is fast and flat making it suitable for all abilities – for beginners whose key objective is to complete the course, to more regular long-distance event runners, looking to beat their personal best time. It covers a two lap 13.1 mile (21.1km) traffic-free course straddling both sides of the River Avon. The race starts and finishes in Great Pulteney Street, in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath.

Entry for the Bath Half Marathon has now closed. If you’d like to take on the challenge of running for GWAAC, why not check out the Forest of Dean Half Marathon?

Nightrider is a fully-supported charity bike ride around Bristol, with a choice of 50km and 100km routes. The route will take in many of the city’s top sights and famous landmarks, not to mention plenty of hills, making for a tough and fun challenge! Back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night, plus a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish.

Riding for GWAAC means that you will save £60 on the entry fee (£39 instead of £99), plus you’ll receive goodies including a t-shirt, high viz vest, drinks and snacks. We can also help you with fundraising ideas (we ask you to pledge to raise at least £175 for the charity).

It’s a great event to do with friends or work colleagues, so why not get a team together? Sign up now and help us to raise the £2.6 million we need a year to provide our life-saving service.
