Frequently asked questions

What is the aim of a Wildbase 360 weekend?


We aim to inspire people to undertake amazing and potentially life changing physical adventures. The weekends provide you with an intense, holistic, fun overview of what's possible.
You will meet and be inspired by amazing people. You will eat fabulous food, chat under the stars of rural Spain and focus on challenges you never thought possible before.




How fit do I need to be?


All levels of fitness are welcome and each weekend itineray is different and shaped by the people attending. The weekend is very much focused on helping you understand what's required to get to the start line rather than being overtly physical. Please get in touch if you want more information by emailing hello@wildbase.co.




You talk about preparing for major challenges but what kind of adventures do you mean?


We know how transformational taking on a significant physical challenge can be for the individual. But we work with a wide range of people, those who have little/no experience but want to do something completely different to those with some adventure experience looking for a step up. We love our groups to be as diverse as possible, learning and experience being shared by everyone who attends. Whether you're preparing for a cross continent challenge or a charity bike ride.




Is accountability a key benefit of attending a Wildbase 360?


Absolutely. Many of us need a push, some encouragement to go that extra mile. You will meet some amazing and highly motivated people who become part of your accountability network and help you get to the start line.




What kind of expertise does the Wildbase team provide?


Huge .....

Our co-founder Luke Grose has rowed the atlantic, cycled the length of Britain twice and done more tough mudders and fell runs than he cares to remember.

Other members of the team have cycled the world, completed multiple ironman events, run ultramarathons and many other incredible challenges.
We have qualified physical trainers and nutritionists conducting sessions throughout the weekend.

Our in-house chefs make sure the quality of food matches the quality of insight.
Have a look at our team page and you'll get a flavour of the expertise available.




Where is the Wildbase 360 weekend located?


We have exclusive use of a casa rual in the small spanish village called Zorita de los Canes. Approximately one hour from Madrid but in reality, a world away. Our hotel sits directly beneath an ancient castle ruin and just above the River Tagus. The surroundings are exquisite, sublimely Spanish and a perfect backdrop for some intense fun.

What happens after the weekend?


You become part of the 360 alumni network but more immediately, you're part of a new accountability group from the weekend itself, all of whom will aim to keep you honest and motivated towards your goal. Wildbase will maintain contact and if you’ve committed to an event, provide regular nudges and advice. You also become part of the Wildbase community, an amazing and supportive community that will only get bigger and stronger as we grow.
