1. Will I be assigned a trainer or will we be tackling the challenge as a group?
Yes you will be assigned a trainer to help you conquer the challenge in smaller groups! This is all about team work and getting across the finish line as one! Email email@example.com if you have a preference on your trainer – choose between Pelé, Sammy, Matteo, Nickol or Uche!
2. What fitness level do I need to be to take on this challenge?
You need to be willing to do a bit of gentle jogging on the challenge. Once we are aware of the abilities within the group, we have the option to cater for all. If you’re worried about your fitness level don’t create barriers – our aim is to get EVERYONE through this challenge.
3. Can I come alone?
Yes of course! Come solo and join other adventurers in an air bnb with some new mates from the group.
4. What time will the challenge start and end?
We will meet at the start point in Horton in Ribblesdale at 5:45am where you’ll be led through a group warm up to get those vibes going before we all set off as a team. We will head off by 6am. We aim to finish early in the evening. Please note the starting point is the end point.
5. Will I need to bring my own food and drink?
You will need to bring your own lunch, snacks and water. All of this prep info will be covered in our pre-challenge Zoom workshop.
6. How do I get there?
The nearest station to the start point is Horton In Ribblesdale. Trains from London run regularly via Leeds and take approx. 3 – 4 hours depending on your connection. If you have a car (if not you can easily rent one) we recommend reaching out to your fellow ROWBOTS and car share. Split the cost, buy some snacks and enjoy each other’s company on the drive up.
7. Where can I stay?
There are beautiful AirBnbs, campsites, glamping sites and hotels in the area. Come along with friends or come solo and buddy up with some new mates from the group.
The following locations are all 10-15 minute drive from the starting point.
