Where does our entry fee go?

We work hard to make the Apex Challenge one of the best value outdoor adventure competitions in the country. Apart from a small surplus we keep for unexpected expenses, every penny paid by teams at an event is spent on that event.

Putting on such large, complicated events isn't cheap. There are all sorts of things we need buy including kit for the activities, food and drink, printing materials and the fees to keep this website online.

It costs £150 per team of three or four to take part in our 2017 competition. Based on our expenses from 2016, this graph gives you some idea how each of those team entry fees is spent. Full details of how we spend the money is in our latest annual report.
