Project Description

1914-1918 Tribute Stretcher Carry

1914-1918 Tribute Stretcher CarryAs our tribute to the nation’s sacrifices during the Great War, in May 2018, Wandering Warriors will stage a commemorative event – a stretcher carry challenge – along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.

This off-road challenge will take between 6.5 and 8 hours to complete, and will begin and end in the township of Fernvale, about 50 minutes drive from the Brisbane CBD.

The stretcher carry is the ultimate team event, as the task demands teamwork to be completed quickly and efficiently. Add 50 kilograms of weight and fast-walk or jog with the stretcher over a 42 kilometre course and you will know you’ve done a good day’s work!
