  • Battle Cup’s University Challenge is the ultimate competitive knock-out assault obstacle challenge. No race categories - no levels - no limits. It's just you and your teammates head-to-head against the challengers! Take on your teachers… challenge them to take you on... show them that they don't know everything!
  • Current Price: $50 Get Ticket
  • Current Price: $55 Get Ticket
  • You’re not really sure how you’d go. Your fitness levels are pretty good, you train regularly, but you’re no elite athlete. Your power lies in your dogged determination to ‘have a go’ and never give up!

  • Current Price: $55 Get Ticket
  • As an intermediate level participant you’re an experienced trainee, and your fitness levels are pretty handy… you train hard, and can hold your own with most people you know. Your power lies in your experience and understanding.

  • Current Price: $55 Get Ticket
  • As an advanced level participant you are definitely a cut above the rest when it comes to this kind of challenge. Your power lies in the fact that you know who you are, you know what you are capable of, and you know you can do this! If there was a Battle Cup TV show, you’d be first in line to sign up.


The race:
- Three identical parallel sets of 16 in-line obstacles grouped into 4 sets of 4 obstacles – “The Gauntlet”
- Graduating levels of difficulty from obstacle 1 to 4
- Teams of 4
- Relay race style (i.e. physical tag from team member to team member)
- 3 categories - Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced.
- Knock-out rounds
- One overall winner in each category

The rounds:
Round 1 - all teams in each category will ‘run the gauntlet’
2 teams of 4 per gauntlet x 3 gauntlets (6 teams running at once), until all teams have run the gauntlet. Each gauntlet is comprised of 4 sets of 4 obstacles

Round 2 - Knock-out: all teams in each category will ‘run the gauntlet' 
2 teams per Gauntlet – the fastest team per in-line obstacle run will qualify for the next round – the loser is out of the competition.

Rounds 3 & onwards 
Round 2 will be repeated until only one team in that category is left, this will be the Champion of that category (see “Winning the Battle Cup Obstacle Challenge in the Rules of Engagement’).

Check-in

All participants must read and sign the Waiver form online (when registering for the event on "Active Network") and bring it with them on the day of the event – NO WAIVER, NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS!

You must have a copy of your confirmation ticket or proof of purchase with you to check-in. An email copy on your phone is acceptable. Present your confirmation email with your ID and a signed race waiver to the registration team to get your wristband

Food & Drink

There will be a variety of mobile food vans on site for you to choose from.

It is always a good idea to bring along your own snacks and supplies, though. PLEASE NOTE that we cannot guarantee the availability of EFTPOS facilities so it will be best to bring CASH FOR FOOD. Please bring a water bottle for when you are in line.

Bag Drop

There will be no bag drop at this venue – your vehicle will be very close to the course, so we recommend that you keep most of your belongings locked in your vehicle.

We may, however, have an envelope drop area. You will be able to seal your Drivers Licence and car keys in an envelope, and provide a password to enable you to collect it at the end of the day. All care will be taken, but no responsibility will be accepted for lost personal items.

If the event needs to be rescheduled, registrations will be honoured for the next event.

How many goes do I get?
Every team will get at least two full runs of the Gauntlet. The second round will be the start of the knock out section, with only the winning teams moving on.

What do I do if I get eliminated early on?
If you only get a couple of runs, don't worry! There will be plenty of smaller side challenges going on for you to test your abilities on.

What happens if one of my team members get injured?
If you have an injured team member then don't worry! The first thing to do is make sure the medical personnel are informed of the injury. To fill the spot in your team you are able to sub in another already registered person.
