Emergency Services Challenge
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 uniforms and full kit to tackle the 1,642 steps to the finish line on level 88!
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 – Firefighter Full Kit
This is a timed climb dedicated for firefighters wearing their full kit (see below for details). A prize will be awarded for the fastest team and individual.
More information on the FULL KIT category:
Eureka Climb will devote wave times for FULL KIT Firefighter 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 but still want to wear the rest of your gear then you should enter the regular Emergency Services category.
