Gym/Sports Club Challenge
Prove that your gym/sports club/sports team/fitness group is toughest in the region by taking on the famous Tough Guy and Gal Challenge in the Gym Challenge!
In this ultimate off road challenge your group will test themselves on a course that includes swamps, net climbs, natural and man made obstacles, mud mud and more mud.
How it works?!
Available for the 6km course option at specific events only (see event dates below)
Teams must have a minimum of 5 team members, there are no maximum number of members. You are still entered individually and all have individual placing’s recorded, but you are also linked under a team name. All team members must be members or employees of the gym/sport club.
The Gym Challenge trophy will be awarded to the first team of five competing in the 6km event. Your combined individual placings will be used to calculate your overall team placing. Plus – all your team members are eligible for individual grade positions. For example; if your top 5 team places are 14th Male, 22nd Male, 32nd Male, 4th Female and 19th Female mean your team total is 14 + 22 + 32 + 4 + 19 = 91 points
What is the cost to enter?
Standard or bulk entry fees apply for all teams. Cost is $65 per person until the end of April. From the 1st May until two weeks before event date price is $70 per person then goes up to $80. If you have a group of 20 or more people then you are eligible for the bulk entry discount which is $60 per person. Bulk entries must be in at least 2 weeks prior to the event.
