The 2013 Charity Challenge was held in the picturesque setting of Willen Lake Park in Milton Keynes, Hertfordshire. As was the case in 2012, the Charity Challenge was a multi-event enterprise, which consisted of a Run and Walk around Willen Lake, a sponsored Hike in the Alps, a separate Walk and Run in Scotland, as well as numerous other smaller events throughout the year.
2013 also saw the addition of a Bikeathon, held in conjunction with Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research (LLR).
The 2012 AMA Charity Challenge was held in the grounds of The Tower of London on Sunday 13th May 2012. Unlike previous years, this was a combined event of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association UK and all its auxiliaries.
Prior to the event, exhibitions were set up by AMYA UK as well as many of the supported charities. The UK Armed Forces had also set up an inflatable obstacle course which provided much entertainment to many participants.
One of the AMA's sponsored London Buses was also parked on the main concourse of the Tower complex overlooking the final straight of the moat.
In addition to the Run/Walk a separate event was held by AMYA Scotland in aid of the Yorkhill Children's Hospital and over 2 dozen members of AMYA took part in a sponsored hike in the French Alps.
On 8th May 2011, the AMYA UK held its Annual Charity Challenge in the town of Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. AMYA was generously given the use of the Pump Room Gardens to use as a start/finish point for the event. As an added attraction, the Gardens were transformed into a Festival-style environment, comprising stalls, fairground style rides for children as well as exhibitions from our sponsored charities. A giant TV screen was also hired for the event, displaying video clips introducing guests to AMYA as well as interviews with local dignitaries.
The race was started by the Vice President of AMA UK, following some introductory words by Councillor Robert Cunliffe, the Mayor of Leamington Spa.
On 9th May 2010, the AMYA held its Annual Charity Challenge in Windsor, Middlesex. The Run and Walk took place in Windsor Great Park and the final prize giving session was held at the prestigious Beaumont House Hotel.
