Select Your XCC WILDERNESS Challenge


It is a MIND BODY SOUL ADVENTURE — like an 'MOT' for blokes. It's a life check up. It asks big questions and expects to deliver big answers. 

- XCC WILDERNESS is a 4 day adventure in the wild: a significant physical challenge that tests and builds skills for life. 

- XCC REMOTE is designed around you & your life commitments. It is a bespoke ADVENTURE based from home.

- XCC TEAMS is for you and 5 mates.  In your small TEAMS you will complete various tasks - some individually, based at home, others together, based in the wild.

If you have lived a bit and are looking to re-boot, re-charge or re-engage, then an XTREME CHARACTER CHALLENGE adventure is for you.

“I’ve not seen my reflection in 3 days but I’ve never seen myself so clearly.” A.L.

“XCC allowed me a place to focus all the pain, grief, frustration, passion, confusion, anger in a context where other men were asking some of the same questions .” M.P.

Why bother? Who is this for?

James Ray explains more about an XCC -
a physical life impacting ADVENTURE for your MIND BODY SOUL

Why would you go?   Who is it for?
This film is an invitation ... what do you think?

“When life is
stripped back you
dig deeper.”  S.B.

“It was way beyond
what I thought
I could do.”  A.N.

“The weekend was truly 
life changing in so many ways,
I was blown away.” R.L.

What can you expect?

XCC WILDERNESS will be 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 is moral challenge and also spiritual challenge. This is not an expedition for quitters: come determined to press on. This is an adventure.

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

“I know it’s OK to ask for help, to stand together;
real manliness is not defined by what we do but how we live.”  B.L.

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

"It's a breakthrough adventure and camaraderie for a fresh start ... It's so accessible and a great way to have fun and bond together." R.K.


What kit should I bring? It's important that you ONLY bring what is on the kit list, nothing more. Try to borrow any items you don't already have. Some group items can be hired from our website shop.

In the event of a family emergency how can I be contacted? We take this issue very seriously and a mobile number will be given to all participants in advance of the event to leave with family/friends.

What is the route?/Where are we going? You will see! At the right times you will be fully briefed by our experienced crew throughout the weekend ... not knowing now is part of the challenge!

Can I bring snacks or isotonic powder? No. All food is supplied. You bring 1.5 litres of water, and we supply water thereafter. Extra snacks (unless for medical reasons) will be confiscated.

What if I have specific dietary requirements and/or medical conditions? Ensure you have filled in the relevant details in your sign up form and we will take it into account where possible.

How fit do I need to be to take part? It is a physically challenging event, so if you can't walk up stairs or jog to the local shop without breathing heavily it's definitely time to start training. Prepare as much as you can in the lead up to the event - walk, run, do basic strength training (examples here) - and ensure you drink plenty of water and fuel your body with healthy 'quality' calories. 

I've heard these events are just for men - can women take part? Due to the nature of topics we discuss and the way men in particular respond and open up, these events are currently only for men. We have a partner organisation called 'Arise' that run similar events for women.

When should I sign up? Now! And encourage your friends to join you, you won't regret it.
