Course Description:

True Grit is the first Australian designed military style obstacle course. Some of the obstacles you may encounter include:
Minefield - You’ll commando crawl under barbed wire, through muddy terrain, being mindful of the simulated mines exploding around you. Be prepared to get down and get Gritty!
Cargo Wall - The obstacle is a 4m high cargo net, suspended vertically. You must scale up, over and down the other side. This will require some upper body strength, balance and stamina.
River of Fire - One of the final obstacles, when you’re looking for the finish line. You’ll need to tread lightly and keep those knees up to avoid the flaming channels.
Mental Challenge - True Grit events will also contain multiple routes, determined by your ability to make decisions whilst fatigued.

Aid Stations:

Water will be available periodically during the course. First aid qualified personnel and equipment will be positioned along the course, as well as a doctor available at the medical area near the finish line.
