What’s involved?
The Challenge is based at the picturesque Motukarara Race Course in Christchurch and at Wingatui Race Course in Dunedin. The 5 km or 10 km (2 x 5 km laps) course will take you over the rugged hill behind the racecourse’s, through pine tree plantations and of course into some muddy marshes.

The courses has some natural obstacles as well as some really entertaining and demanding obstacles that we have dreamed up. The courses include mud slides, forest runs, hay bale pyramid, a crawl under a sea of barbed wire, horse jumps, water jumps, wobbly bridges, mud runs, floating platforms and new obstacles are added each year. Challenge yourself in 2015 whilst having the time of your life.
