The Genesis Energy Hillary Challenge is undoubtedly the toughest adventure competition for high school students and the battle for first is intense. Not only does this event require a high level of physical and mental fitness, being a team sport, members need the ability to work together under stress.
The 5 day Hillary Challenge is held each year at Hillary Outdoors Tongariro, and is only open to a total of 12 teams, each consisting of 8 students from Year 12 or 13. The teams will be scored on their skill, speed and endurance during a 5-day series of outdoor adventure challenges, including a 2-day rogaine style wilderness expedition and a multi-sport race on the final day. In true adventure racing tradition, the exact details of all challenges will be kept secret until the event.
