"Held on the Saturday July 8 this unique course is designed to be tough but fun, you can run, walk, or crawl this super hard course," adds Lyndsey.

You can compete as individual or as a group. "What better way for a workplace or just a bunch of friends to challenge each other and have a heap of fun at the same time," says Lyndsey.
