First Training Weekend

With the departure date for the expedition being just 6 months away the team's training is going to be very important from hereon in. Everyone's started their own individual fitness routines with a couple of small group cycles being organised here and there. Our first official training weekend has now been planned for Friday February 25th to Sunday February 27th. A lot of the planning for the weekend is still underway and so further details will follow!

We are planning on running this weekend similarly to how we will be living our day to day lives when travelling to Morocco. This means we will all be on bikes, purchasing food as we go, wild camping and cooking. There is even a chance that we will get out in kayaks onto one of the reservoirs but this is yet to be finalised. Training weekends such as this one will be vital to ensuring the actual expedition runs as smoothly as possible.

If you've not already watched it, check out the video from the selection weekend that is posted below.
