Challenge set for Sunday

How tough are you?

The Burnie Challenge is on this Sunday 14 April starting at 11am at the Hellyer College oval.

Mayor Steve Kons said, “The Burnie Challenge is a fantastic event. It is great to have a sporting event that is not about winning. The Burnie Challenge is not a race. The idea is for everyone to help each other through the course. It is a brilliant team building exercise for families, sporting groups and workplaces.”

It is not too late to enter.

Event Organiser and Council’s Community Development Officer Allison Daley said, “The best way to enter, if you live in the Burnie area, is to visit the Burnie City Council offices before close of business Friday at 80 Wilson Street. By entering in person, you can collect your wristband at the same time and then you won’t have to line up on the day.

“If you can’t get into the Council Offices, the second best option is to enter online before 12pm on Friday via Council’s website. You will however need to collect your wristband on the day.

“The third best option is to pay and register on the day. Save some time by downloading and filling out the form before you get there. Registrations open at 10am. It will also be a big help if you bring the correct money with you. There may be a wait in line but we will try and keep things moving as quickly as we can.”

This year’s course will be full of surprises, with more mud and 15 muscle aching obstacles. 

“I would suggest wearing your oldest shoes and tight fitted clothing, as when you get muddy, loose clothing becomes very heavy. Although we will have an area for people to leave their belongings, we urge entrants to leave valuables at home,” Allison Daley said.

Parking is available at Hellyer College. Make a Wish are holding a fundraising BBQ on the day.
