Mark won't be stopping to relax when the 2012 Formula One season draws to a close in Brazil in November. Instead, he'll continue to push people and potentially himself to the limit, taking part in the annual Swisse Mark Webber Tasmania Challenge.
Our relentless driver has announced the course details of this year's charity adventure race and believes the route, which runs around the north east of the Australian island of Tasmania will be a challenge of F1 proportions.
Our Aussie Grit said: “Getting out in the wilds of this beautiful island is a huge contrast to racing, but it will provide a huge challenge for everyone who takes it on... We are building one of the world’s true endurance adventure races in Tasmania.”
Particpants will be expected to run, ocean and river paddle, orienteer, mountain bike and take on some secret tasks throughout the gruelling five day mission.
Mark's participation in the event is dependent on his physical condition at the end of a twenty race F1 season but if previous years are anything to go by, there is every chance Mark will join a team and run, cycle and kayak with them to raise funds for the Mark Webber Challenge Foundation. The foundation, established in 2006 encompasses all of Mark's philanthropic activities.
“Every year I say I might not do it, but when I actually get there, my competitiveness starts to flow and I just love getting out there and pushing myself in an entirely different way to the track” Mark said recently.
Thirty nine teams have already signed up for the race. If you think you've got what it takes to form a part of the fortieth then click here.
