Are you prepared?

This is the one that will push you to your physical and mental limits!

Battle Cup Challenge is the ultimate competitive knock-out assault obstacle gauntlet to test your strength, speed, and agility. There will be 3 race categories to choose from. All male team, all female team, or a mixed team (2x Male + 2x Female).

Everyone gets to test the gauntlet in Round 1, however, the second round is when it gets serious, one false move, and you’re out! And your team will join the body count... There will only be one triumphant team per category. Will your team be the Battle Cup Champions?

The first ever Battle Cup Challenge is being dedicated to the community’s own rescue helicopter, with all profits from the three-day event being donated to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Each year the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is on standby 24 hours a day to help save lives throughout our region. And no one has ever paid to be assisted by the Service because of the generosity of community-minded individuals and businesses.
