Eco-Challenge
« on: April 16, 2003, 11:43 AM »
Do you watch or ever heard of the Eco-Challenge?
This year it is in Fiji.

This is the description from the Eco-Challenge site:

This is a physical endurance challenge pitting teams 4 men & women to the ultimate adventure. Races non stop for 6 to 12 days, 24 hrs a day, over a rugged 300 mile course using mountain biking, river rafting, horseback riding, mountaineering & fixed ropes, kayaking & navigation skills.

The first team to cross the finish line together, in full complement, is the winner. If a team loses a member due to illness, fatigue, injury or team disagreement, they are disqualified. Only teams that work together as friends have any hope of reaching the finish line.

I have watched the Eco-Challenge from the start many years ago. This is from producer Mark Burnett who is the guy who produced Survivor.

The challenge starts this weekend on April 21. I get in on the Discovery Channel.

Does anyone else watch & like this show?
