The Millers Dale Challenge

This exercise will last between one and a half hours and two hours and is run on location in Millers Dale. The abseil at Millers Dale is the one featured on TV's Stars in Their Eyes.

The challenge itself can include teams competing for either points or money generation depending on the nature of the programme. Teams are set off at the same time and each team has an individual time programme to include an opportunity to abseil the Millers Dale Bridge itself. During the exercise, teams will also undertake an orienteering type treasure hunt around the area to recover information. We may also include a quiz sheet as well just to give them an even greater challenge!

The challenge does not demand any physical requirements and running is discouraged as teams often over shoot the target points! Teams can be made up by your own choice or left to our instructors on the day.
