It takes a special kind of person to compete in the Endeavor Team Challenge. This is not a casual race to be completed in an afternoon, and we don’t call it a monumental fitness challenge for nothing. The ETC is more than a race. It’s validation that you and a teammate can surmount challenges out in the wilderness requiring self-reliance, physical resilience and psychological fortitude. It taps into the inner primal instinct that has been subdued, but is always present and waiting for a worthy test. The willingness to tap into this reserve is what separates those who choose to answer the call to compete from those who never take action. The reasons not to take on the Endeavor Team Challenge are endless, but it only takes a moment of courage to Answer the Call.
