I have been hearing about this event since moving to Australia 6 years ago. Finally this year i got the call up for ‘Team Rest of the World’ The day consists of 3 teams and 6 events (see below) They run the length of the day finishing off with a bbq and a few beers at the beach.
Such a good day with a really great set of lads. Personally i went from Penthouse (coming first in the ball toss) to Shithouse (finishing last in the 1200m run) I’m blaming the 35 degree heat, ha! Team Rest of the world finished second to the Kiwis with the Aussies finishing dead last. Already thinking about events for next year.
