The MammothMarch story as taken from the its website, goes like this:

In today’s hectic world full of (digital) distraction, information overload and daily routine, we are looking for ways to slow down and recharge – our bodies, minds and souls.

At the same time, we must get out of our comfort zone and push our boundaries to become a better version of ourselves as well as to help reverse the decline in the environmental health of our planet.

MammothMarch is a one-of-a-kind adventure that gives you the opportunity to do all of the above.

Unplug. Recharge.

Reach your limits. Push them.

Are you ready for the challenge of a lifetime? Let’s get there together. Step by step.
