Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a remarkable New Year.

23 December 2014

As the end of 2014 approaches, we wish all past and future race crew, sponsors and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a remarkable New Year.

Congratulations once again to more than 670 crew from over 40 different countries who competed in the 2013-14 race. We proudly celebrate your achievements and hope fond memories of your race continue for years to come.

Looking ahead, 2015 is guaranteed to be an exciting, life-changing year for our future crew. 78 training courses ran this year between our UK and Australian training centres as we prepare our 2015-16 and 2017-18 adventurers to take on one of the biggest challenges of the natural world.

Thanks to everyone for the daily inspiration that keeps us discovering ourselves and our planet. We're looking forward a New Year filled with more thrills, adventures and achievements.
