What is OBE?
OBE is team challenge event with hiking and activity bases and is in 3 parts:
- The Friday Night Challenge (full of surprises!)
- The Day Challenge (multiple activity bases)
- The Night Hike (around 8 miles interspersed with challenge & food bases)
Taking part in each activity is important, but the key to being successful rests with those who show good teamwork!
