ALPINE SPORTING EVENT - STRIVE CHALLENGE



THRESHOLD SPORTS

In September 2019 we had the pleasure in working for Threshold Sports in the delivery of the latest Strive Challenge for Big Change, a charitable organisation formed in 2014 by the Branson family and others.

 

The physical challenge based event catered for everyone from novice to seasoned striver, with a route that offered alpine lake swimming, hiking, road cycling, climbing and paragliding. In the evenings the group stayed in some of the Alp's finest hotels, remote mountain refuges and glamping in breathtaking locations.

 

Although the event is physically challenging and the participants pushed their boundaries every day, there is still time allocated for them to kick back in the evening, eat amazing food and sample delicious local wines while having meaningful discussions.

 

Our role at Haute Pursuit was to work with the UK based event managament company, Threshold Sports, acting as their local agent on the ground using our book of contacts and local knowledge to help them deliver their requirements for the Strive Challenge. Highlights of what we were tasked with included:

 

Venue sourcing for the various elements of the challenge

Local supplier liasion, and regular reporting back to UK office

Group transportation requirements for the French side of the event

Glamping - sourcing site, tents, organising dinner, sourcing and confirming walking guides

 

Testimonial:

 

"What can I say! You are just a total legend and we could not have done it without you last week. Such a positive person and you worked so hard, both during and pre event. So thank you so much. It was also fun – the many laughs made it all worthwhile… The week went so well, and all participants were super happy and chuffed at the end at what they had achieved and the fun they had on the way. Just a shame it was so cold for the first couple of nights, however I think those nights were so special, and different, and the ones that they will remember."

 

If you are planning a sporting event, perhaps a cyling sportive in the Alps in summer, or want to organise a charitable hiking event around Mont Blanc, contact us to find out how we can help you deliver your activity.
