THE 2.5 HOUR CHALLENGE
10-minutes of intense work followed by 20-minutes recovery, five times:
HOW IT WORKS
Your team will face an endurance test of five 10-minute workouts in 2.5 hours. 10 minutes of intense working followed by 20 minutes of recovery x 5 times. Because today, 1 in 2 is affected by cancer.
Your team will be scored in each workout with comparable results across our GLOBAL 2023 leaderboard so you can see where your team sits against the fittest in the world - from Dubai and Miami, to Berlin and Paris.
