About us

Neville Duncan ~ Director

Neville has a background and passion in sport that goes back 30 years. He has worked with organisations such as the Great Run Company, Events of the North and Cancer Research UK (helping to pilot the one of the first Community ‘Race for Life’ events in the UK).

His event management experience includes mass participation events, formal / informal presentation evenings, charity sporting events and new innovative events like the Original Elf Run, Mad March Mare, and Clarty Bairns.

Stewart Armstrong ~ Co Founder

Stew’s experience has come from his work on some of the world's largest sporting events, including motorsport, cycling, mass participation runs, swims and multi terrain obstacle events.

He has brought his vast knowledge of health & safety to the business, conducting risk-assessments, designing event safety-management plans, and ensuring that medical and infrastructure requirements are met at each event. This, combined with his project management experience in the construction and event industries, ensures that our events are safe, practical and most importantly, enjoyable.

Our beliefs

We believe everybody wants and needs challenges in life, and we want to provide challenging opportunities through safe, professional, and innovative events. We also believe in service excellence and treating customers with respect, so if we wouldn’t do something ourselves, then we would not expect our clients to do it either.

Our promise

Between us we have over 20 years experience and knowledge of the events industry, which gives Challenge Northumberland a sound professional backbone. We are committed to the pursuit of excellence with every project we deliver. We strive to provide the best possible service and to create events that ensure that participants have the maximum possible fun!
