True Grit is coming to VIC


The iconic military-style, Australian Special Forces-designed obstacle course is now available in five Australian states


Calling all commandos! True Grit’s military-style obstacle course will take place in Victoria for the first time ever in 2024. As Australia’s only locally owned and operated obstacle course race, True Grit has built a formidable reputation for its action-packed events, designed by Australian Special Forces.


Since 2012, True Grit has held around 80 exhilarating events across the country that’ll get your adrenaline pumping while you’re running, jumping, climbing, and sliding. With 30+ world-class obstacles spread across kilometres of some of Australia’s most astonishing natural terrain, True Grit provides participants with the ultimate playground in which to test their strength, courage, and determination.


Drawing on over 35 years of combined experience in the Australian Special Forces, True Grit events are designed to physically and mentally challenge participants of all ages and fitness levels - from weekend warriors to elite athletes.




In 2024, True Grit will take place in New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland, Western Australia, and Victoria from March to October.
