You choose

However you take it on, the trek will test your stamina. But don't worry - you'll be supported all the way, and the beautiful views, the fantastic camaraderie and finally getting over that finishing line to your medal, and a glass of bubbly will never match the amazing sense of achievement.

The challenges are brilliantly supported with hot food, snacks and drinks, rest stops, medics and masseurs. There's also a handy shuttle bus to local stations and halfway points.
