Let's Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Camp Challenge!

Online registration is currently closed. Registration will be available on event day. Please plan to arrive at Camp for the following check-in times: Ride: 8:30AM and Run/Adventure: 9:30AM to register for this event. 

Rally your family, friends and colleagues for an opportunity to “raise a little hell” at our 10th Anniversary of Camp Challenge! There will be something for everyone as the day combines Camp’s traditional 15-mile and 30-mile scenic bike routes, our Bandit 5K run/walk and for our second year, a 3-mile Grit ‘N Wit adventure race with updated obstacles!


Cyclists will ride through the beautiful hills of Northeast Connecticut, where they will find the friendliest, fully staffed rest stops and SAG vehicle support. Teams of 4 are recommended for the Grit ‘N Wit adventure race, a family-friendly competition that will challenge teams’ brains and brawn throughout the course. All are encouraged to join for our one-of-a-kind finish festival with Camp tours, activities, food trucks and live entertainment!


You can build a team or join as an individual, and every dollar you raise helps bring "a different kind of healing" to seriously ill children and their families through The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp's year-round programs. All services are provided free of charge.
