About the event

This event is a once in a lifetime challenge to trek to Poon Hill (3,210m) in the stunning Annapurna region of the Himalayas. In six days you'll pass through charming Nepalese villages where you'll experience the culture of the mountain people of Nepal first hand. The challenge will be tough but the friendship and camaraderie along the way will be very special

Britain V Cancer is not your normal Open Challenge – all funds raised on this trek will support charities that undertake research into the prevention, causes and possible cures for all types of cancer, or provide emotional and practical support for the many thousands of individuals and families affected by cancer worldwide.
