World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji is the ultimate expedition race in which 60 teams from 30 countries race non-stop, 24 hours a day, across hundreds of miles of rugged back-country terrain complete with mountains, jungles and oceans. Each race team is comprised of four competitors, including at least one member of the opposite sex, and one assistant crew-member that hels their team from home base. Each team races under a single country flag while making their way through some of the most impenetrable terrain Fiji has to offer.
The race encompasses a variety of non-motorised forms of transportation including outrigger paddling, mountain biking, rappelling, climbing, whitewater rafting, paddle boarding and canyoneering, which teams must pass assessment tests in. Navigation is done with only a map and compass and teams are required to use expedition problem-solving skills in their quest to the finish line. If any team member quits or is unable to complete the race, the entire team is disqualified. Only teams that can work together under extreme stress and fatigue have any hope of reaching the finish.
Hosted and executive produced by Bear Grylls (You vs. Wild).
