A challenge fit for everyone

ALLFIT Albury will hold its fourth fitness challenge on February 22.

Dubbed the Border Battlefield, organisers are promising the course, on the Hume and Hovell walking track, will be more challenging than it has been before.

The 10-kilometre endurance course will test participants with obstacles and includes a military-style bootcamp overseen by physical training instructor “Bad Brian”.

Josh Hibbett, from AllFit Albury Fitness Centre, said the course catered for all fitness levels and was ideal for teams in pre-season training.

“We held a similar event in November and got a lot of positive feedback,” Hibbett said.

“This time, we have extended the course, from seven kilometres to 10, and added more obstacles, including a 2.7-metre container climb, five-metre wall obstacles, commando crawl, log carries and tyre flipping, among others.

“You can enter as an individual or as a team.

“We have had a lot of interest from sporting clubs that are looking to do something a bit different as part of their pre-season training.

“Teams of 10 or more people go into the draw to win supplements valued at $1000, supplied by Marty Clarke of Aussie Supplements.

“We had more than 100 competitors for our last challenge and, judging by the interest so far, we should beat that number comfortably.”

Individual entry costs $60.

A team entry of $50 a head includes event singlets and complimentary beer and barbecue lunch at the Kinross Woolshed hotel afterwards.

Registrations will be taken from 8.30am, with the challenge set to start at 9.30am.
