Challenge Events

Challenge events are a fantastic way for a company to support a charity. We participate in a number of running events throughout the year and we are always keen to see a corporate team getting involved. These events are a great way of creating a team spirit and getting people active and inspired.

We are happy to arrange charity places for your company if you want to take on a challenge on our behalf.

In previous years our supporters have taken part in the British 10k London Run and the Royal Parks foundation Half Marathon on behalf of Mentor - click the button below to read more about our challenge events.
