"Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light." – Yogi Bhajan
The Silverbacks Adventure Race Team travelled the 13th June to compete in the 'DARE' Challenge on Saturday 15th June which was hosted by the St. Gilgen International School in Salzburg, Austria. The Dare is a physically demanding adventure race that took the teams up mountains, across lakes and off cliffs. The race was not only a test of endurance but also teamwork. Justly so, there were 27 teams involved (from Germany, Switzerland, Austria and The Netherlands), in total featuring 18 Junior Teams and 9 Senior Teams.
The Juniors had to complete a course of 15km and the Seniors 28km. All ISH Teams completed the gruelling course with 4/5 Teams finishing in the top 5 and two teams surprising everyone by getting a position on the podium!
The ISH Junior 1 Team finished in 2nd place with a total time of 2hrs 48mins 58 secs. The ISH Senior 1 Team finished in 3rd place with a total time of 5hrs 13mins 52secs. A huge congratulations to all involved!
