Like many businesses there is often a story behind why it was created. This is very much the case with Geo Tracks. Our Managing Director Ben has been organising challenges all over the world for over 20 years and it was on a challenge in Spain in 2019 that the idea for Geo Tracks was formed.
The event was run in very challenging conditions and for a short while a group of participants were lost and the event organisers were unable to track them down. This became very concerning, especially as the weather was so bad and the participants were wet and tired. Thankfully the group were found and they were all fine, but it made Ben realise that this situation could have been avoided if the participants were all carrying a GPS tracker, which would have enabled the support team to locate them and retrieve them from the awful conditions much quicker.
