We've done some volunteer stuff for a hospice where a good friend of mine spent his last days, gardening and general maintainence. Track building at the mountainbike park, a sort of urban orienteering course with cafe and pub stops. All optional but with 100% attendance rate. I hate forced stuff but also like the idea of my team being removed from work and putting some personal element to what they do.
Teambuilding opinions please
10k could be very reasonable depending on the outcome of the event, being able to be part of helping a group of people to achieve their goal which may be worth 100's of thousands or more. It probably cost more to get the people into a room for a day when you take into account salary, travel etc.
Elite team sport has a lot to offer business in terms of methods and commitment. As with all lists some are good and some are bad, Alister Campbell looks over priced unless it includes some sort of boxing/fight.
In nearly 15 years I'm yet to work somewhere that couldn't have benefited from some outside help.

This. Given we have a lot of overseas sites, the transport bill will dwarf the event cost.
Take the budget and put it behind a bar somewhere. This tends to work best in my experience!
Except, of course, for employees who don't drink. Or ones who already have a problem with drinking too much.
