PREPARATION

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 re-hydrated. Go Pro's or similar devides may be worn, however, we take no responsibility if they are lost during your course. We advise you to secure the device during water or mud obstacles.
True Grit events are designed to test both physical and mental grit. You will need some endurance to complete the course. There are two training programs (Intermediate/Advanced) provided under the “True Grit Training” section on this website. Alternatively, you may want to walk the course and only attempt some obstacles. True Grit encourages participants of all fitness levels.
You should be confident to at least swim 20 metres. Safety staff will be at all water locations to assist you if required. If you are not a confident swimmer you can bypass the obstacle.
