Project Description

Warrior Stretcher Challenge

The Event

On Saturday 24 August, Wandering Warriors will hold a marathon distance stretcher carry. This largely bush-track challenge will take between six and eight hours to complete. We’ll begin in the township of Surat (about 50 minutes drive from Roma) and finish in Wallabella. The stretcher carry demands fine teamwork.

Add 50 kilograms weight per stretcher, then fast-walk or jog over a marathon distance course and you’ll know you’ve done a good day’s work.

Warrior Stretcher Challenge

The stretcher carry coincides with the famous Cobb and Co Festival.  This year’s festival will be held from 17 – 25 August between Surat and Yuleba, QLD. When it’s over, you’ll be ready to experience yarns by the campfire, bush tucker, live entertainment and to relive the days of Cobb and Co. Come just for the day or stay overnight (or for the week!) to experience this wonderful bush festival. The Cobb and Co Festival celebrates the anniversary of the last horse-drawn coach service in Australia.

Teams

Each team will have a minimum of eight and maximum of 12 members. We encourage teams rather than individual entries, as it takes time and effort to develop the teamwork needed for this task. We’re aiming for teams that carry their own branding, whether corporate or club, or your zany group of friends. Male, female and mixed teams all welcome.

Entry cost is $1000 per team or $120 per individual

Each participant will receive:

  • A cap, shirt and medallion.
  • $50 of your entry is a donation for which you will receive a $50 tax receipt.

Last years event

Last year we held the stretcher carry as our tribute to the nation’s sacrifices during the Great War, on May 2018, Wandering Warriors staged a commemorative event – a stretcher carry challenge – along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. 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!
