On Saturday, August 23, ten members of Cowra Health Club travelled down to Lower Portland, Sydney, to compete in the True Grit Challenge.
The team feeling strong prior to the event.
The 10km course contained thirty military style obstacles, aimed at challenging competitor’s strength, determination, agility and endurance.
The group went to the event alongside the club’s fitness instructor, Jo Graham.
“I am really proud of everyone who took part,” she said.
“By completing the course they achieved a goal we have been working toward for the last ten weeks.”
Obstacles included rope climbs, barb-wire crawls, monkey bars, and negotiating the muddy mile, a mile of thick waist-high mud.
The club members stuck together throughout the event, helping each other with the obstacles and providing moral support.
Each person was covered from head to toe with mud after the event, some, more than others.
“It took a few showers to get rid of all the Mud,” Mrs Graham said.
Mud logged and exhausted, but still smiling.
“And some of the clothes were definitely write offs.”
The team started and finished with smiles on their faces.
“I will keep my eye out on upcoming events, a gauge people’s interest,” she said.
True Grit is held in various locations across Australia, and appears in Sydney annually.
