Join sporting legends Will Greenwood MBE and Dean Mumm, and TV personality and former special forces operative, Jason Fox on an amazing challenge crossing Costa Rica on a 275km journey by foot, bike, kayak and raft from the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean.

The expedition starts with a challenging river kayak taking in views of the Caribbean lowlands, rainforest and ubiquitous banana plantations. You will then cycle through forested lowlands, across rivers, and past verdant patches of jungle.

Your trek will provide incredible views of the rainforest and Turrialba volcano, experiencing the amazing biodiversity and natural beauty of Costa Rica and the indigenous people.

As you near the Pacific, we transfer to rafts for a 10km whitewater run. As you make your way downstream the vivid colours of the exotic birds make the old-growth forest flash with life, with many species of kingfishers and Toucans.

The challenge will test you physically and you will earn your sponsorship for Borne, but this is the most incredible way to experience the diversity of Costa Rica.

Make this journey to help raise a total of £250,000 for ground-breaking research into the prevention of premature birth. To find out more about Borne's work, visit www.borne.org.uk
