Channel UK Events CIC
Here at Channel Events our aim is to run engaging and accessible lifestyle events that drive lifelong, self-led participation in physical activity in the outdoors. We are driven by the belief and research that regular physical activity in the outdoor environment has massive physical and mental health benefits. We deliver outdoor events, not only because they are an awesome thing for you to participate in but because it is about much more than just event day, it’s a lifestyle choice. Setting yourself a goal which then leads to regular physical activity, enjoying the outdoors, joining clubs, meeting new people and training for the event makes positive changes in peoples lives. From the moment you enter one of our events you’ve made a lifestyle choice and what a great choice you’ve made, we look forward to seeing you on the start line!
Channel UK Events CIC is a Community Interest Company (CIC) incorporated in October 2018 – A community interest company is a business with primary social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community. Channel Events has always been and will continue to be not-for-profit, firstly as a project of Channel Adventure and now as its own entity.
Dan Brice heads up Channel Events and is completely passionate about every event we organise and deliver. Dan came to the Channel Group 3 years ago bringing the successful Quantock Quake with him, this event is now the finale of The Triple! Through Dan’s passion and drive we are delighted to have incorporated Channel Events as a CIC and look forward to the trail ahead!
Our events could not happen without the amazing support of our Volunteer Tribe! We are very grateful to every single one of them for donating their time to help us deliver fantastic events for you. We do of course look after them as best we can with social events, merchandise, breakfast and drinks on event days. Interested in giving something back to a sport you love, or just have some free time? We are always looking for more volunteers to join the tribe!
Be a warrior by entering an event, become one of the tribe or both!
We’d love to meet you
