About EPIC Challenges

Using challenges, events and talks to help change as many lives as possible.

Challenges

We’ve been taking on endurance challenges since 2014 and have raised over £100,000 for charity to date.

Events

We organise and deliver a range of short, medium and endurance distance events in Guernsey, ranging from Fun Runs to 12-hour Endurance Races.

Talks

We draw on our experiences of organising and taking on life changing challenges to inspire individuals, teams and organisations to be the best they can be.

The Why

For us, the why is simple, but the journey to discover the why has not been simple.

First of all, it is not about running, swimming or cycling. It is about us using challenges as a vehicle to help change as many lives as possible.

We have realised that when you combine purpose and challenge yourself to be the best you, the outcome is often a positive change in your life and positive change in the lives of others.

We have core objectives at EPIC Challenges, everything we do must:

Inspire individuals

Engage and inspire the community

Engage with Education and young people

Raise awareness of charities

Raise money for charities

The Impact

At the heart of what we do remains our core purpose to help improve other people’s lives. Since 2014 we have raised over £100,000 for charity.

Since starting out on our journey in 2014 we have always aimed to have a positive impact in everything we do. Our challenges and events have helped people in Guernsey and across Africa.

We have also seen the intangible benefits of our work where people have started to push themselves in their own ways as a result of involvement in our events or children who believe they can achieve their own dreams because they met someone who inspired them at our events.

Below are the charities that we have supported to date through our challenges and events.

 

  • This Is EPIC
  • MUG
  • NSPCC
  • Jonah and Anthony
  • The HUB
  • Guernsey MIND
  • Guernsey Cheshire Home

The FCG EPIC Week 2018

Get Your Move On! 

The FCG EPIC Week is back for 2018 and this year we are aiming to get as many people of all ages and physical abilities to take part and get moving.

Following the success of last year we are to raise money for two fantastic local charities whilst inspiring people to take on new challenges, become more active and push themselves to their personal limits – whatever that may be.

Much like last year you can sign-up as an individual or a team for this unique community event and challenge yourself to do something you have not done before, raise money for two amazing charities and inspire others to be active and take on new challenges.

The difference this year is that the FCG EPIC Week is open to any sporting or physical activity, making it accessible for all. We have provided a comprehensive drop-down list of sports and activities to choose your 7 day challenge from. When you have selected your sport or activity you can the enter details regarding the distance or time in the free text field.

On sign-up you will be given the option of buying branded merchandise for your epic challenge, includng t-shirts, cycling jerseys and neck-buffs in a range of sizes. Once registered, you will be automatically set-up with an online fundraising page which we encourage you to share with as many people as possible.

We are aiming to raise £15,000 through The FCG EPIC Week. Please make sure you share your sponsorship details with as many people as possible. The event is raising money for two great Guernsey based charities, This Is EPIC and Guernsey Cheshire Home.
