The course had 17 obstacles including the expected tunnels, swings, climbing wall, tyres, hay stack, creek run, climbing frame, bush run and slides. There were 3 different mud and water slides including the 20 metre finale mud slide which ended with a huge pool and great splash at the end.
“One of the most amusing obstacles for the spectators was the first one which became renamed shoe graveyard” said Harbour Sport Chief Executive Toni-Maree Carnie. “We did warn people to attach their shoes with tape, the mud was deep and gluggy and sucked shoes off.
Even in the run up to the event, staff lost shoes in that mud. At one stage we had to rescue an official and a fireman who both got stuck in there helping a participant. But it kept the large crowd of onlookers amused”.
