As amateur athletes, we are not focusing on one kind of sports and try to do that in the best way. Rather, we aim to get involved with every type of sports that we enjoy, support us to overcome the difficulties and experience more in nature. In this way, our target is to enhance our limitations as a whole. Lycian challenge is the race to utilize abilities of various sports to reach a target, and doing this really in a hard way.
Lycia is a region where we always enjoy seeing and admire the nature and history. We can perform many sports activities all together here. Moreover, there is only one chance to complete the Lycian Challenge, to act wisely and in harmony as a team!
Our team observing all these facts needs to answer one question: We have the philosophy of unifying our lives with nature, but most of our lives are in the offices. Can we complete such a challenge under these conditions?
