Mount Toubkal challenge Friday 4 October – Monday 7 October

Our Mount Toubkal challenge is a great opportunity to take on North Africa's highest peak and raise money to help us give disadvantaged children a route out of poverty. Sign up on your own or get a group of colleagues or friends together and take on the challenge together.

Mount Toubkal is North Africa’s highest peak. Situated just south of Marrakech in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, Mount Toubkal stands a lofty 4,167 metres rising out of a jagged chain of mountains that give way to the pre-Sahara and the desert itself. Marrakech, known also as the 'Pink City', provides a fascinating start and finish to the trek, transporting you to a very different world, just a 4-hour flight from London.

The ascent is not technical but it is tough in places, with some steep scree slopes and less air than you will be used to. Reaching the top of North Africa and looking across the savannah and mountains will be a feeling never to be forgotten.

This is an epic challenge for teams and individuals.

  • Registration: £150
  • Minimum fundraising £1,200 (excluding Gift Aid)

Flights and insurance NOT included
