Understanding our challenge types

Download everything you need to know about about this challenge

Join us as we discover Kerala – South India’s most serene and beautiful state. Starting in Thattekad, our challenge takes us through dense forests, tea plantations on our ascent to Munnar – surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. We'll visit the world-famous arch dam of Idukki, before we start our descent. We'll cross Vembanad Lake by houseboat, before continuing to our destination of Marari, where we enjoy a celebratory meal! We then have a free day to relax and enjoy miles of golden sand at Marari Beach. If sunbathing isn't your thing, you can even visit the historic city of Fort Cochin. This fantastic cycle challenge involves tough climbs throughout – but we will be rewarded with the most spectacular scenery!

Climate Care

We believe that we all have a responsibility to help fight climate change and as a company, we are committed to offsetting as much of the carbon generated by our challenges as we possibly can. With this in mind, we will plant 26 trees for every open participant who takes part in the challenge. For further information on our climate care strategy, click here.
