CHALLENGER CAMPING, GLAMPING AND PRE-PITCHED TENT OPTIONS
Our Bardon Mill venue is the junction between day one and two for the Challenger class. Here will have our start/finish line, campsite, supporter car park, and your overnight bag collection point.
To gain access to the campsite with its toilets and showers all participant and supporter campers will need to have purchased a camping pass – get your’s here. The camping pass allows a camper to pitch their own tent in the general camping area. Or alternatively hire one of our glamping or pre-pitched tents. EVEN IF HIRING A TENT YOU WILL NEED A CAMPING PASS FOR EACH OCCUPANT. The camping pass is a separate purchase so we are able to plan and fund our campsite infrastructure against the number of campers booked in. This infrastructure includes: the area of land hired for the campsite; Beerstalker food and bev marquee, security measures such as staff, fencing and wristbands; phone charging point, showers and toilet facilities. This way folk only pay for what they use and we can keep pricing as competitive as possible.
PLEASE NOTE: Our campsite cannot accommodate any vehicles including cars, trailer tents, campervans or caravans. The campsite is strictly no dogs.
