Steelman calls to heroes

Steelman Challenge 2015

UNLEASH YOUR INNER HERO...

    DRAG A BRICK ALONG THE SAND WITH ROPE, CLIMB A ROCK WALL, BALANCE ON ONE LEG, SCRAMBLE OVER ROAD BARRIERS, RUN THROUGH TYRES, GRIND LIKE AN AMERICA'S CUP SAILOR, SPRINT UP A HILL...

    The Steelman Challenge is a stand ​up ​paddle ​relay ​race ​with ​a ​series ​of ​obstacle ​ challenges ​on ​the beach/grass ​to ​test ​your ​functional ​strength, ​flexibility, ​ balance ​and ​fitness ​- ​the ​very ​things ​the ​Pinc ​& ​Steel ​ Programs ​are ​designed ​to ​restore ​to ​people ​with ​cancer ​or ​the effects ​of ​cancer. 

  • 7 Obstacles.  8 SUP laps.  1 hour to finish.   
  • Some of the challenges may be easier for kids, some they will need your help with.   Families can do it together. Children under 10 can paddle tandem or on a board by themselves but need to be accompanied by a grown up and wear a PFD.
  • Each ​team ​of ​2-4 ​people ​chooses ​which ​member ​will ​complete each ​challenge, ​and ​in ​what ​order. ​ ​Teamwork, ​strategy ​and ​ fun ​are ​important ​factors! ​ ​
  • You ​can ​also ​enter ​the ​event ​as ​an ​individual ​and ​complete ​all ​the ​challenges ​solo.
  • Upon ​completion ​of ​each ​challenge, ​you ​will ​receive ​a ​coloured  ​band. ​ ​When ​all ​seven (a rainbow) of ​coloured ​bands ​have ​been ​collected, ​teams ​must ​run ​together ​ with ​their ​board ​across ​the  ​finish ​line.
  • All ​teams ​start ​at ​the ​same ​time, ​and ​each ​challenge ​must  ​be ​completed ​before ​starting ​the ​next ​one. ​ ​Upon ​completion ​ of ​their ​turn, ​each ​team ​member ​must ​"pass ​the ​baton" ​to ​the ​next ​team ​member. ​
  • The ​"baton" ​is ​a ​superhero ​cape ​of ​your ​own ​design.
  • Each ​team ​needs ​to ​bring ​one ​superhero ​cape ​- ​any ​colour,  ​fabric ​or ​style ​as ​long ​as ​it ​hangs ​from ​the ​neck/shoulder ​ area ​and ​is ​at ​least ​60cm ​long.
  • The ​stand ​up ​paddle ​component ​of ​the ​race ​is ​a ​series ​of short ​400m in ​and ​out ​sprints ​from ​the ​beach​ (total ​distance ​3.2km). ​ ​

  • Each ​team ​needs ​one ​board/paddle: ​if you ​don't ​have ​one ​there ​a ​limited ​number ​available ​for ​use ​ on ​the ​day ​thanks ​to ​Starboard. ​ ​These ​can ​be ​booked ​on ​ entry.
  • All ​ages ​and ​skill ​levels ​welcome. ​Awesome ​prizes ​up ​for grabs and all competitors get a free t-shirt!

STEELMAN ​is ​a ​fundraising ​event ​for ​the ​Pinc ​and ​Steel ​ Cancer ​Rehabilitation ​Trust. ​

Teams ​are ​also ​invited ​to ​join ​the ​race ​off ​the ​water ​to  ​see ​who ​can ​raise ​the ​most ​funds ​online. ​ ​Ask ​your ​ friends/family/colleagues ​to ​join ​in ​or ​sponsor ​you ​on Everyday Hero ​and ​help ​someone ​up ​today!
