Last year people from various backgrounds were involved from all over Australia were

Leah Benoit

65yo, Hobart

Took pride in completing the event as part of her fitness group.

“It was a great challenge and I’m proud of my accomplishment”


35yo, Perth

Engaged over 50 of her colleagues to take part on an offshore oil platform 400km NW of Broome.

“The comradery this built was amazing. We’re already looking forward to next year”


48yo, Maitland

Took part with over 20 people from his gym.

“Just awesome. Can't wait for the next event. We’re now looking for something similar before the next event!”

The event is setup so that there are communities, teams and individuals

Some people may just take part as an individual, some in a team and some may take part in a team that is part of a greater community.

An example of a community could be an organisation with various teams within it and various members in those teams.

We recommend a team size of no greater than 20 (less than 10 is ideal).
