Tomorrow is the final day, and you can’t wait to finish, but then it hits you, it's not about the final Finish line, it’s about the journey, there were times you wondered if you would make it, each day giving you fantastic highs, very tough going at times, sometimes making you doubt if you can succeed, but with the support and help of the team and your fellow competitors, many who become lifelong friends, the finish is in sight, you worked hard for this moment. and suddenly you don’t want it to end.

With astonishing sights and scenery along the way, moments of complete despair followed by immense joy, living, fighting and being triumphant in an environment like nowhere else on the planet.

A lifelong experience that will live with you forever, and you realise you can achieve much more than you thought was possible.
