Black Mountain Challenge

Enjoy a thrilling abseil from one of the many mountains in the Black Mountains, Wales.

Soar through the stunning countryside as you take part in the ultimate mountain biking experience set in the heart of the breath-taking natural beauty of the Black Mountains. You will need endurance as you canoe along the beautiful River Wye and, if you love crawling behind waterfalls, jumping off ledges, crawling in and out of small caves and jumping into deep pools, the gorge walk is for you!

If this sounds like the adventure for you, register for our Black Mountain Challenge

Please note this event is for Essex residents only.
