The stunning Caudo Vineyard, by the Riverland town of Waikerie hosts our SA event each year. This True Grit course winds through the 1100-acre property, tracking across vineyards, woodlands, water bodies and silky sand dunes. The popular Festival Area, which encompass our triumphant start and finish lines are set against the banks of the Murray River. Don’t forget to visit the Caudo Vineyard Cellar Door when you cross that finish line! This obstacle course is renowned for being the most diverse in Australia, thanks to the varying terrain.

To enter as an Elite, you must select the 'Elite' wave at 8.30am on the Saturday of the event weekend. This will be the first wave out of the gate to kick off the event, and the top ten times of the event will be recorded at the finish line. Top 3 of both male and female will place on the podium for our event and will receive a prize at our presentations (typically around 10am). Elites get first access to the course, before it's been muddied up too much by everyone else! Our Elites do have a burpee penalty of 20 burpees for every obstacle failed or not attempted. There is a 'mystery' obstacle for our Elite wave only on each course - to be revealed the morning of the event at your briefing at the Start line.
Take on the True Grit course as an individual by entering in any wave time on either the Saturday or Sunday (aside from the 8.30am Saturday wave). Just because you're taking on the course solo does not mean you're alone - anyone out on course is able to help you and there are no penalties for failing or skipping any obstacles.
Enter as a team to take on the True Grit course together and make a day of it! We love to see some team t-shirts or group costumes out on course... and they always make for great pictures! Don't want to take on a particular obstacle? Don't worry! There's no penalty for any failed or missed obstacle with True Grit.
True Grit events are designed to test both physical and mental grit. You should cross train in both lower body endurance and upper body strength. All obstacles are designed to be completed at a basic level of fitness
We strongly recommend long pants, or leggings and long socks to make your course comfortable and provide protection. Running or hiking shoes are sufficient to attempt the course. Keep clothing light, as you are guaranteed to warm up during the course. Water bladders are a good way to keep rehydrated.
