About the event

Good luck to all our Challengers who are heading off soon...

Imagine travelling to a far off exotic destination with a group of people you may not have met before and experiencing some of the most spectacular scenery and inspiring culture the world has to offer. Sounds like an idyllic holiday, right?

Now imagine you are travelling across that country on foot or two wheels, undertaking a daily battle with wild terrain and tropical weather, where around every corner and over every hill there is another incredible view or experience to be had. And imagine you could undertake that journey in the knowledge that you are raising funds for a cause that makes a daily difference to the lives of hundreds of people.

This is what our Ocorian 2017 Challengers will be facing this November when they head to Costa Rica!

The Ocorian 2017 Challenge is a biennial event that draws the very best from people in terms of personal endeavour and generosity. Our Challengers will be either cycling or treking from coast to coast in the Caribbean country (some are even doing both!) – a distance of over 480 kilometres for the cyclists and approx 100 kilometres for the trekkers. On the way they will encounter rain forest, volcanoes, quiet village communities and striking colonial towns. It will be the journey of a lifetime that will make a difference to the lives of others.

The cycle challenge takes place from 1 – 12 November 2017

The trek challenge takes place from 10 – 22 November 2017
