We have lots of challenge events coming up in 2012. Whether you fancy running a marathon, have a burning desire to climb a mountain (super-fit supporters can climb three in 24 hours with us at the COINS Three Peaks) or fancy a cycle around London by night, there's something for you. Read on to find out what is coming up or see our fundraising page for other fundraising suggestions.
The "Three Peaks Challenge" is a endurance trek up the tallest mountain in each of Scotland, England and Wales, in the space of just 24hrs.
One of our major supporters, COINS, uses high profile challenge events to raise money for charity. This year COINS is giving away 10 sponsored individual places for the 3 Peaks Challenge. The PEAS fundraising team is taking on the challenge this year, and we are looking for people to join us and help fundraise.
|The "Peckham 10km Charity Fun Run" on 7th May is a informal way to raise money for PEAS by running in lovely surroundings.|
|"Nightrider" is a 100km moonlit bike ride past London's iconic landmarks on the 9/10th June. It's a great way to fundraise while testing your limits and having an atmospheric experience.|
|The "Great South Run" is a flat 10mile run through Portsmouth on 28th October.|
|The "Wiltshire 100" is a 100mile bike ride through the Downs. The route through the gentle countryside of Oxfordshire and Berkshire makes it a relaxing, if tiring, fundraising event.|

|The "Jersey Marathon" takes place this year on the 7th November, which you can participate in individually or as part of a relay.|
The "Snowdonian Marathon" is a challenging route circling Mount Snowdon and rising through the Pen y Pass at 1100ft. This offers a way to really push yourself while fundraising for PEAS.

|The "24 Peaks Challenge" is a gruelling walk and consists of 24hrs across two days: 10 peaks on the first day and 14 on the second. It is suitable for only the most fit and the most determined.|
