Kryp­tonite Chal­lenge tests teams

The Chronicle - - NEWS - Meghan Har­ris meghan.har­ris@thechron­i­cle.com.au

THIS year’s Kryp­tonite Chal­lenge will test the tough­est of the tough, with more en­durance chal­lenges than ever.

The fit­ness event is re­turn­ing to the Toowoomba Show­grounds for a third year.

It will be held across two days on Satur­day, Novem­ber 4 and Sun­day, Novem­ber 5.

There will be 50 in­sane ob­sta­cle cour­ses and chal­lenges in­clud­ing the elec­tro shocker, carry your buddy, the blade crawler, mon­key mad­ness, the muddy moun­tain and the scorcher.

There will also be ob­sta­cles to test your fears such as the creepy crawler, claus­tro­pho­bia and a spi­der’s web.

Event or­gan­iser Phill Reuben said about 400 peo­ple at­tended last year’s chal­lenge and even more were ex­pected this year.

“It is go­ing to be a fun week­end. We lis­tened to what the peo­ple wanted and have added some new ob­sta­cles as well as kept the ex­treme stuff like the ice bath and elec­tric shocks,” he said.

“Any­one and ev­ery­one can take part, there are chal­lenges to suit ev­ery fit­ness level.

“One of the cour­ses we’ve added is a 50 me­tre wa­ter

slide into the dam which peo­ple will love.”

Teams are en­cour­aged to en­ter the chal­lenge, with a prize for the big­gest group.

If a team of more than 56 peo­ple is formed, beat­ing the pre­vi­ous team record, Mr Ruben will give back $1000 to their gym or fit­ness cen­tre.

On the Sun­day there will be the Bat­tle of the PTs with

two teams of per­sonal train­ers bat­tling it out to raise money for the

Toowoomba Hospice and the Ip­swich Hospice.

The Toowoomba Hospice

needs more team mem­bers so if you are in­ter­ested in com­pet­ing and rais­ing funds phone 4659 8500.

The Kryp­tonite Chal­lenge is open to any fit­ness level and it is not a race so peo­ple can take as long as they like to com­plete the course.

Those who don’t wish to at­tempt any ob­sta­cle can just miss it out and move on.
