The goal of our common world trip

In 80 days we want to cover 122,578 kilometers of land and 36,443 kilometers of water. The disciplines on land and on water are contested at the same time, the uploaded and documented results are calculated for the land or water route. There will be two moving points on the interactive world map that will show us every day where we are on our journey. So we come to a community effort that, with your support, leads us through 153 countries and their capitals.

We want to take as many people as possible with us on our world tour. No matter where you live, everyone can join in and help ensure that we travel from Norderstedt to Norderstedt in 80 days. We want to hear your stories on social media. Show us your favorite route, show us your favorite travel destinations, show us your favorite vacation photos. Be creative, because only through you will our journey become an exciting, communicative and interactive community experience.

In addition to the sporting component, the trip is also intended to serve various non-profit organizations. The focus is on a local project in Norderstedt and various climate and environmental protection projects.
