Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation are delighted to be joining forces with Zip World for the fourth year running for this Zip Wire Velocity Challenge, which sees our fundraisers fly through the air at speeds of up to 100mph!

You will have the opportunity to take on not just one, but two zip line challenges.

The experience starts with The Little Zipper. It is the UK’s 3rd fastest zip wire reaching speeds of up to 45 mph. But this is just a warm up compared to the big one…

The Big Zipper is the longest zip line in Europe and the fastest zip line in the world! You will descent through the quarry from 1,500ft, reaching speeds of up to 100mph as you fly through the air for over a mile! It has been described as the closest thing to flying!

In order to ensure everyone is able to take part, we have three different payment options for you to choose from.

Sponsorship and payment options:
  • Option A - £75 one-off payment

  • Option B - £60 registration and £25 minimum sponsorship

  • Option C - £25 registration and £100 minimum sponsorship

As this is an extreme challenge, there are a few restrictions for participants.

  • Weight: 30kg minimum, 120kg maximum

  • Age: 10 years old, no maximum

  • Height: 120cm (4 feet) minimum, 210cm (7 feet) maximum

Whether you enter as a team or an individual there will be plenty of support to help you with your fundraising. Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation will provide you with support, fundraising materials and one of our t-shirts to wear on the day.

Perhaps zip wiring just isn't for you. But you do know someone who would love to take part. How about giving them one of our NEW Zip Wire Gift Boxes?



With each box, they'll receive; a gift card, a wristband, a pin badge, a thank you card, a personalised letter, a keyring, a snood and a t-shirt to wear on the big day.

Speaking of "big day" - our extreme challenge gift boxes make brilliant hen or stag do experiences!

We offer two payment options for our gift boxes. Either pay £25 and challenge your loved one to raise £100 to beat the UK's biggest cancer killer. Or, pay a £75 one off payment that covers the cost of the zip wire and makes a donation on their behalf to the fight against lung cancer.
