Student Challenges

If you're looking to raise funds whilst experiencing some of the world's most iconic locations and experiences then Action Against Hunger's challenge events are for you! 

Machu Picchu Trek

Trekking through the stunning Salkantay route you’ll travel through some of the most beautiful and virtually untouched areas of the iconic Inca trek. The challenge finishes up at the breath-taking site of Machu Picchu – one of the Seven Wonders of the World! 

By taking part in the challenge you will also have the chance to connect with our project team in Peru and find out more about the direct impact your fundraising has on the local communities.

This is a chance to hear from our staff on the ground about the difference you are making, and really is the experience of a lifetime. 

Morocco Trek

A chance to explore a country that offers a wealth of diverse cultures, steeped in classical history.  With the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Sahara to the south, Morocco offers something different for every traveller; not least the once in a lifetime experience of the High Atlas Mountain Trek. This incredible mountain range spreads over half the Mahgreb and is conveniently located south of Marrakech, where you will begin your adventure. The incredible journey will take you through valleys, up to high villages and ultimately to the summit of Mount Toubkal – North Africa’s highest peak!

Running Events

Whether you're a keen runner or keen to become one Action Against Hunger has an expanding student running calendar with a challenge to suit you!

Budapest Marathon - October 2016
Known as the 'party marathon of Eastern Europe' this beautifully bohemian route is great for those wanting to get a p.b. or just soak up the scenery. Runners will travel to the city on the Friday before their challenge, enjoy a day of sightseeing before the run itself and of course - the after party! So if you've got the running bug and are up for an adventure then this is the challenge for you.

Silverstone Half Marathon - March 2016
This unique race gives you the chance to take on the iconic Formula 1 track by foot. What's more for everyone that hits their fundraising target there'll be the chance to revisit the circuit again with a free Formula 1 experience either taking on a few laps by car or taking a helicopter tour.
