Go Hard or Go Home (4 x 60′) – A adventure challenge series presented by adventurer Hannah White. Hannah chooses 16 members of the British public to take part in a life changing challenge. In just twelve weeks Hannah’s mission is to get her team to the start line of some of the world’s toughest physical endurance races, ready for the challenge of their lives.
As one of the UK’s most successful single-handed sailors, crossing the Atlantic, solo, three times, Hannah is used to taking on a challenge, but is this a challenge too far? She’ll be mentoring unfit members of the public through the physical and mental pressures of tackling some of the most notorious sporting events on the planet.
Hannah will equip the competitors, including doctors; car dealers; pub landlords; and members of the Woman’s Institute, with the necessary skills to attempt events from ‘The World’s Toughest Canoe Race’ in Texas to ‘The Bone Breaker’, a 127mile cycle race across the Pyrenees; to a 71mile charity triathlon in California and a 41mile quadrathlon across the western coast of Ireland, with the reputation as the toughest race in Europe.
During the series, Hannah will try to teach her participants the discipline needed when committing to huge changes in lifestyle. For many of her contestants just getting to the starting line will be more than they could ever have hoped to accomplish.
