True Grit Challenge

Do you have the True Grit to conquer Tamborine Mountain?

Challenge your strength, find your power and find your victory on Tamborine Mountain on 11 and 12 August.

Whether your team is your friends, family, colleagues or you choose to stand alone to find your grit, it’s all about being your personal best.

True Grit is the first Australian designed military-style obstacle course.

The True Grit course layout is based on military experience, by utilising unique obstacles tailored around the vegetation and terrain of the land. Our aim is to deliver a truly unique experience to those that dare.

Course details and a map will be published closer to the event date.

Minimum participation age is 16. If you are 16 or 17 and wish to attend you will need a guardian sign an indemnity form on the day at the event.

More about True Grit

Adam and Matt are the founders of True Grit. Their combined experience in the Australian Army spans over 33 years, with the last 20 years in Special Forces.

True Grit’s founders have served in 15 operational deployments, throughout Afghanistan, Iraq, Timor-Leste and domestically within Australia. From body-guarding Australian Prime Ministers, to being on standby for Hostage Recovery and conducting a range of complex missions overseas, they have been proud to serve amongst some of the bravest soldiers in the world.

Adam and Matt last deployed operationally together in 2010, when Matt was wounded by an improvised explosive device (IED). Interestingly, on that day, Adam was responsible for communicating the CASEVAC (casualty evacuation) through for a helicopter extraction. Their hope is that these races will raise money to support the families of those we have lost and members that have been wounded in operations.
