The search for the UK’s most adventurous author is on!

Go Ape (www.goape.co.uk) are searching for the UK’s most adventurous authors between the ages of 4 and 12, with the chance to win a selection of adventurous books as well as a group adventure in the tree tops with their tribe!

An experience at Go Ape is all about living life adventurously, and Mini Tarzans will simply need to write 100-500 words describing their favourite adventure for the team. These tales can be completely made up or a real account of an exhilarating escapade - if it’s fictional, then imaginations can run wild!

Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the following categories:

  • Best fiction author (for ages 4-7 and 8-12)
  • Best non-fiction author (for ages 4-7 and 8-12)
  • Best character (for ages 4-7 and 8-12)
  • Best use of language (for ages 4-7 and 8-12)

As well as this, an additional prize will be awarded to the favourite entry by Go Ape’s two Chief Gorillas – Tristram and Rebecca Mayhew.

Within each age range judges will review the quality relative to age, so all monkeys, whether big or small, will have the same chance of winning!

Entries are open until midnight, Thursday 22nd June, 2017. For further info, T&C’s and to enter visit goape.co.uk/adventure-stories. Handwritten entries can be scanned in and sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

About Go Ape:

In 2001, ex-tank Commander Tristram Mayhew and his wife Rebecca, discovered how much fun it was swinging through the trees during a holiday in France. They quit their jobs and the following year, with a giant leap of faith, created the first Go Ape adventure – and they’ve never looked back.

It is still a family run affair, Tristram’s brother, Jerome, is the Managing Director.

Go Ape, whose quirky aim is to be the best adventure company on the planet where you can be home in time for tea, is driven by creating adventures and encouraging everyone to live life adventurously.

All adventurers are expertly fitted with climbing harnesses by trained instructors and are attached to the safety line when off the ground.

Go Ape is the UK's No. 1 Forest Adventure with 61 activities across the country including:

- Tree Top Adventure – for adults and children of 10 and above who are at least 1.4m (4ft 7in) tall.

- Tree Top Junior – for children who are at least 1m (3ft 3½ in) tall

- Forest Segway – for adults and children of 10 and above weighing at least 7 stone.

- Zip Trekking Adventure – for adults and children of 13 and above who are at least 1.4m (4ft 7in) tall and weigh a minimum of 7 stone.

The company has grown organically to 30 locations across Britain and 17 in America, creating 1000 jobs. In 2016, more than 963,050 people came to live life a little more adventurously at Go Ape – an 11.5% increase year on year. Go Ape won Rural Business of the Year at the 2016 Amazon Growing Business Awards – the UK’s most established and respected recognition of SME and entrepreneurial success.
