Xtreme Character Challenge


XCC is physically demanding. The journey is based in wilderness locations where you will need to carry all the equipment you need to survive. There are no cars, no rides, no lifts. Your feet will move you from place to place. Some say it is the hardest thing they have ever done, others don’t agree.

You have to be ready to think big. To open your mind and soul. There are moral challenges and also spiritual challenges. This is not an expedition for quitters: come determined to press on. This is an adventure like no other.


Endurance hike for men only


4days and 3nights


Spiritual breakthrough


Brotherhood forged

Adventure, with all its requisite danger and wildness, is a deeply spiritual longing written into the soul of man. John Eldredge

There is more to life than you think

The XCC has been specially developed for men who are looking for answers to the big questions of life. Throughout the adventure you will explore and discover what it means to be a man in this modern world.

Come with everything you have: with your failure and your success, with your thinking and your doing, with your heart and your hands, your smile and your tears: come as yourself.

Teams become brothers

You operate in teams of eight men. You can compose this team yourself or you can register individually, then we will classify you. Your team will become your brothers, so if you don’t have anyone to come along with COME ANYWAY, you will have brothers when you leave.

If you want to participate as a complete team, each person must register separately using the form below.

What other men have to say about the XCC


This XCC was at the right time to push me forward- not just think about change but make commitments to do it.


It made me realise there are a lot of common issues that we as men face and can share.


I didn’t know the next 3 days was going to shape me: physically, emotionally and spiritually and change my life forever.


The men’s testimonies. I could see my story in them and learnt a lot about how to deal with my challenges.
