From mass participation running to small local abseiling events, invigorating muddy obstacle races to gentle country-side walk challenges, we have a programme of adventure challenge events for people of all ages and abilities.
EightPointTwo deliver unique and challenging adventure events across the UK for charities or organisations. We ensure everyone involved has a positive experience and our health and safety standards, attention to detail, effective delivery and successful fund-raising are at the core of everything we do. With over 20 years experience you are in very safe hands.
The style of events we manage tend to be adventurous and challenging, which requires people to get out and get active, often taking them out of their comfort zone.
More often than not our events will be raising money for charity. Activities range from abseiling, walking and cycling events to mud runs, obstacle course and bespoke team challenges or corporate events.
Each event and each organisation is unique, so there isn’t a one size-fits-all formula. However, our experience and knowledge is what guides us to success and we follow some standard principles – a five-step process.
Kate Gaynor - Marie Curie Cancer Care
As a charity we always strive to ensure that our fundraising events are not only professional, efficient and fun but above all that they are organised with the utmost attention to safety. 8.2 offers peace of mind because they ensure that these high expectations are met. Your expert advice and support has been invaluable – thank you.
Susan Crossley – Cystic Fibrosis Trust
We have worked with 8.2 for several years now always finding them extremely efficient, courteous and with a good measure of humour and the ability to cajole even the most terrified participant into action!
Jo Bottomley - Community Manager, Yorkshire Building Society
8.2 have been our event company of choice for many years now, we can rely on them to come up with a memorable and challenging event for colleagues, from walks and hikes to abseils, obstacle challenges and colour runs. Communication with the team from planning to event day is smooth and the support and experience on the day is calming and supportive to colleagues ensuring the events run as planned.
Steve Loane - Fundraising Manager
A huge thank you from everyone at Sheffield Royal Society for The Blind for holding the 160ft Abseil from the Owen Building at Sheffield Hallam University. We raised a fantastic £6,893 from the event and will hopefully exceed the £7,000 mark as people are still collecting in their sponsorship.
Rebecca Richards, Fundraising manager - Myton Hospice
I just wanted to email and say once again a huge thank you to you and the team for Saturday and thank you for bearing with us in the run up to the event with all the back and forth! We have so far raised just under £20,000!!
Lisa Talbot, Fundraising Manager - Manchester University NHS Trust
I just wanted to send you an email to thank you and all the team at 8.2 for putting on a truly wonderful abseiling event over the weekend! Your team were professional throughout and the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Thank you once again your team made the event seamless!
Stuart Wyle - East Anglian Air Ambulance
East Anglian Air Ambulance worked with the team at eightpointtwo to create, develop and launch our very first mud obstacle race in 2016 ,that went on to become our Only the Brave. In its first year the event sold out within weeks, so we knew we were on to a winner! We continued to work with 8.2 as their event delivery partner and the event grew from strength to strength and is a flagship fundraising event for the charity. We have always found their professionalism, event expertise, support, enthusiasm a real asset.
