MOVE over Tough Mudder, the Hero Dash is the latest course to test the skill and agility of courageous contenders.
There were slips, spills, bruises but mostly laughs as 17 teams of four battled it out at Waratah oval in the prestigious competition.
It was a close tussle but none could beat the skill of Orange City team 2, which will now enter hard training in a bid to retain the title at the 2014 Orange and District Relay for Life on March 8.
The best dressed team prize went to Mass Nutrition and the best hero dives went to Leanne Corcoran and Brett Sammut.
Relay for Life volunteer committee chairperson Terry Betts said the motivation behind the Hero Dash was not necessarily to raise money rather it was to raise awareness of the 2014 Orange Relay for Life, get people thinking about it and hopefully encourage everyone in Orange to get a team together and participate in the relay.
It was also a good excuse to have a bit of fun.
“It was a lot harder than people thought it would be,” Mr Betts said.
“But it was still achievable for everybody.”
Competitors had to crawl, flip tyres, race a wheelbarrow, run through agility poles, do sit-ups and burpees to finish the dash.
“It’s a relay based event to get people thinking about the relay for life and it is to celebrate the everyday hero.
“That is the everyday people of Orange who have raised so much money for cancer research and cancer funding.”
