Eco-Challenge Adventure Races

Base Camp Manager

Christy’s early career in sport and adventure involved mud, snakes and leeches. For six years, starting in 1996, she worked on the Eco-Challenge Adventure Races. The series was a pairing of outdoor sports with a 300 mile non stop adventure race over several days through extremely challenging terrain. From Borneo to Cairns to Morocco, Christy worked around crocodiles and orangutans while camping in the jungle and desert. The dirtiest job in Christy’s career was this series that ended up being the catalyst to Mark Burnett’s incredible career developing out his reality television franchise that includes ‘Survivor’ and ‘The Apprentice’.
