Welcome to the Virgin STRIVE Challenge 2016!

In September 2016 a Core Team of 20 people will travel 2000km, from the base of the Matterhorn in Switzerland, to the summit of Mt Etna in Sicily, entirely under human power. The Core Team will be joined by hundreds of people across the different stages, all striving for a Big Change.

This epic challenge will see us hike for 5 days through the Alps (stage 1), cycle the entire length of Italy (stages 2, 3 & 4), finishing with the STRIVE triathlon: swim to Sicily, mountain bike to the foothills of Mt Etna and then run a half-marathon to the summit of the volcano (stage 5)!

The Virgin STRIVE Challenge is a Big Change event and aims to raise £1.5m to support innovative early stage projects across the UK, giving young people the tools to develop a Growth Mindset in order to thrive in life.

We will be officially launching in early 2016, but in the meantime please enter your email address if you want to be sent information on how to get involved!
