Run the Virgin London Marathon

The sheer sense of achievement of taking part in the Virgin London Marathon, one of the world’s greatest marathons puts it in our top five of things to do before you die.
How to get a place in the London Marathon
There are two ways of entering the London Marathon; either through the ballot system or through a charity place. Entering the ballot system does not guarantee a place, which means applying through a charity is the preferred option for most runners. Most places are allocated by the end of December. If you agree to take a charity guaranteed place, then you will need to agree to raise a set amount of money. Each year the London Marathon nominates one or two ‘official charities’, which usually have a significant number of guaranteed places available.
How will it cost to run the London Marathon?
The amount of sponsorship money expected usually ranges between£1,000 and £2,000. However, this is where generous friends, family and work colleagues come in.

Dive with sharks

An inspiring experience

Sharks may not have the cuddly reputation that dolphins have, but diving with sharks comes in at number three down to their own unique charm.
Seeing the ocean’s top predator cruise towards you underwater is sure to make your heart beat a thousand times faster. No extreme sport beats the adrenaline rush of diving with sharks.
How dive with sharks
Cage diving with great white sharks is amazing, the best swimming with sharks experience is off the Cocos Island. Located in Costa Rica, 350 miles (563km) off the Pacific Coast; this is one of the best places for shark activity. Here you will see hundreds of schooling hammerhead sharks cruising in to be cleaned by smaller fish at this offshore mount. The waters here also play home to other top marine creatures, includingmanta rayswhales and dolphins. You need to have a good diving experience and be prepared to pay out a lot of cash to for a diving liveaboard trip.
How much will a shark diving course cost?
Expect to pay up to £3,000 for a diving trip to the Cocos Islands. Definitely the most expensive feature of the top 10.

Walk the Great Wall of China

An inspiring experience

The Great Wall of China faved to be the only manmade creation that can be seen from space, China’s Great Wall stretches more than 4,500 miles (7,200km) across the northern Chinese countryside.

Many tour companies offer trips to the Great Wall.

Guided trips to China which take in the Great Wall can cost anything from £1,000.

Swim with dolphins

An inspiring experience

Swimming with dolphins hits the top of the list time and time again on things people wish to do before they die. The team at realbuzz.com agree — coming face-to-face with one of the planets most fascinating and most-loved creatures is hard to beat.
Where you can swim dolphins?

Don’t swim with dolphins kept in captivity. That’s what conservation organisations, such as the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society say. If you want to experience the true wonders of being in the water with a dolphin then go to their territory and let them visit you on their terms. There are a number of travel companies, such as Wild and Free Adventures in Nature, which offer swim-with-dolphin trips. Make sure the organisation you pick is reputable and operates an eco-friendly policy. Among the best places to swim with dolphins are Egyptian Red Sea, the Azores and the Bahamas.

How much will it cost to swim with dolphins?

The cost depends entirely on the location you chose. Organised trips to the Red Sea will cost much less than the Bahamas, which will be considerably higher.
