Red Bull Can You Make It? – The race of a lifetime

Participants – Action

Red Bull is challenging you and your friends in a race across Europe.

Red Bull Can You Make It? is the team challenge you do not want to miss. You and two friends must cover more than 1,000 miles in one week to reach the finish line in Amsterdam.

However, the race isn’t about when you get to the finish line, it’s about how you get there. Red Bull cans will be your only currency, along with your charm, and wit.

20 teams from the UK will be flown to one of four starting points – Budapest, Madrid, Rome or Stockholm, where they will have their cash, credit cards and personal phones taken away for the week. There are challenges to complete across European cities, and you’ll post photos and videos to receive support from followers at home to add to your overall score.

200 teams made up of university students from 60 countries around the world will take part in the challenge which takes place in April this year.

The last Red Bull Can You Make It? took place back in 2016, where 165 teams took part in life changing experiences such as jumping out of a plane to getting tickets to a Champions League Game.
