Paddy Pallin Urban Series
Saturday 5th November 2016
Sydney CBD, NSW

Entries are now open for the Paddy Pallin Urban in Sydney for 2016. One of the most popular and unique events on the calendar the Paddy Pallin Urban will have teams of 2 completing checkpoints around a series of locations right in the heart of the harbour city. Sounds easy enough right? Well as an added twist the locations are only revealed to the teams via cryptic clues that they have to solve! Teams also have to factor in how they will travel between checkpoints, sure you can jog or walk between them but teams can also use public transport (no taxis!) to save time and effort as well. The winners are not necessarily the fastest team, but the team that has the best strategy and team work on the day.

Last year checkpoints included kayaking, musical trivia, puzzle solving, basketball, blindfolded tent building and karoake to name a few! What will 2016 have in store? Well that is a secret too! All the checkpoints will be designed for all levels of fitness and will be a combination of physical and mental challenges. The Paddy Pallin Urban really is like a mega episode of the Amazing Race all crammed into one day!

What are you waiting for?

Event Wrap Up

Tough Bloke Challenge
Saturday 25th June 2016
Appin, NSW

A cold June day did not stop the crowds of Tough Blokes, Tough Chicks and, brand new for this year, Tough Kids conquering the Tough Bloke Challenge course and proving that they were TOUGH ENOUGH!

With 29 obstacles to conquer this year the event was harder than ever with some new challenging obstacles becoming instant favourites! All the Tough Blokes and Tough Chicks were challenged by the high walls, rope swings, mud baths and chilly water obstacles. After a welcome free hot shower and free 4 Pines beer in hand they were talking up the event as the best edition yet and vowing to be back in 2017. Will you be tough enough to join them???

All the photos from our friends at Outer Image are available for viewing online so get along to check out all the shots of the participants in action and get an idea of what we will have in store for you in 2017!
