True Grit Australia!

I’m feeling a little sorry for myself today after completing True Grit over the weekend but that makes the experience all the more fun!! True Grit is the first Australian designed military style obstacle course of its kind and spans over 10-12km with over 30 obstacles to tackle. The course isย testing and exhausting but one hell of an experience that I would encourage most people to try!

Getting ready to take off! The cleanest we will be for the next few hours.

Unfortunately there was a bit of a hold up with this one, approx. 150 people waiting to climb this rock and only 2 at a time -_-

The source of most of my aches today, the rope traverse.

Special mention to this legend, Dani! Thank you for pushing our sorry asses through the course and congrats on your Bronze Medal! 3 True Grits completed, woot woo!! Completedย in 2hrs and 57 mins but with the hold up at Obstacle 3 we could have done much better.

I would love to hear your battle stories if you completed True Grit over the weekend so leave a comment below!

Much Love
