Calling all Emergency Services personnel from across Melbourne, around the country and abroad! Compete in Australia's Biggest Vertical Race - Eureka Climb!
As part of the event, the Emergency Services Challenge will have its own wave times and whilst official uniforms are optional, we encourage you to challenge yourself and wear your full kit to tackle the 1,642 steps to the finish line on level 88! Special wave times will be allocated for full kit participants.
There are two categories you can choose from:
1. Climber - Emergency Services - this is a timed climb for those that are in it to race. A prize will be awarded for the fastest team and individual
2. Climber - Emergency Services Full Kit - This is still a climbed time but no prizes will be awarded for fastest team or individual (see note below).
Eureka Climb will devote wave times for FULL KIT Emergency Services participants. This is for fire fighters who choose to go the whole hog and complete the climb with breathing apparatus and full protective clothing (an extra 23kg's we hear). Places are limited for this extra special category.
Full Kit includes:
• Structural Fire Fighting uniform (tunic and trousers)
• Breathing Apparatus set
N.B. BA's are not being provided by the event organisers. This is something you will need to provide along with the rest of your kit. If you can't get a hold of a BA set then you may still enter this category wearing the rest of your gear. This is also why no prizes are awarded to this category - as organisers we are not aware of which teams and individuals are wearing BA's and therefor at a dis-advantage with speed up the stairs.
