Launching at the gates of the resort, the Champneys team will be joined by The One Show and Countryfile presenter as well as BBC Children in Need’s Pudsey.

The 10-mile challenge is raising cash for BBC Children in Need and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Stephen Purdew, Champneys owner said: “This will be a lot of fun, and a great way to help make a difference to so many lives.

“Champneys are proud to be supporting such worthy charities and we know that the money raised will go a long way.”

Teams of five will be required to raise a minimum of £2,500 and will be tasked to bike or trike (rickshaw) for two miles to a designated location set within the Tring countryside.

They will then take part in a six-mile hike before cycling for another two miles back to the resort.

It is suitable for beginners, experts and everyone in between. A prize will be given to the three teams that raise the most money.

Entertainment at the resort will include a brass band, celebrity guests, fitness demonstrations, fashion shows, luxury sports cars, gourmet food stations and vintage fairground rides.

There will also be face painting, magic shows, a football skill school, donkey rides, cake decorating and assault courses.

The event takes place on Saturday, October 8 from 11am to 6pm. Go to www.champneys.com
