And taking on a charity challenge is a brilliant way of getting yourself out into all that natural beauty.
Something for everyone
Charity challenges are big business in the UK and over the years have grown to encompass just about every sporting activity you can possibly think of.
Those with a head for heights and a love of walking will be salivating at the prospect of the various Three Peaks challenges, other peak challenges and a wide range of challenge walks.
Runners can choose from a 5K or 10K run, half marathon or full marathon, whilst those with sea legs can test their mettle and skills with a sailing challenge or a swim. Adrenaline junkies can get their fix abseiling, zip sliding or skydiving and if getting in the saddle is your thing, there are dozens of charity bike rides all over the country. Alternatively, why not take on a swim, bike and run in a triathlon or all sorts of activity combinations in a multi-activity challenge?
When it comes to running for charity, marathons remain arguably the most popular - and demanding of fundraising pursuits. We list events right across the UK, from the Isle of Wight Challenge to the Loch Ness marathon in the Scottish Highlands.
