The Bibbulmun Track Team Challenge is the most unique physical and mental team building challenge in Western Australia. Teams of four go head-to-head, battling it out across 50km of the Bibbulmun Track with a series of mental and physical challenges over four days.
This innovative, nature-based event, held annually in October/November, involves teams of four, competing in a series of interactive activities during a four-day hike on the Bibbulmun Track.
Two of WFR staff members, Steve Gauci and Ashraf Dashlooty, teamed up with Wayne Rosen (Medtronic) and Paul Haigh (Aurizon) to form team SP_CE, and take on the challenge!
Activities focused on outdoor skills, leadership, problem solving, teamwork, safety and first aid, environmental awareness and physical challenge. Each heat included an undisclosed adventure activity with participants walking up to 15km per day in a selected location south of Perth. Teams were self-sufficient but training / support are provided and experienced instructors co-ordinate the activities.
8 teams competed in this years challenge and SP_CE was competing against companies KPGM, Geraldton Grammar School, Dept of Parks and Wildlife, and CBA.
The Awards Night was held on Tuesday November 4 where participants and organisers gathered to celebrate their achievements. In addition to the Challenge Champions, KPGM, another annual award was also presented on the evening - The Spirit of the Bibbulmun (Jim Freeman) Award. This award was won by SP_CE as the team that kept together when the going got tough, improved the most as a team, were environmentally aware and were conscious also of other teams. SP_CE were also one of the teams that fundraised for their entry.
Well done team!
