A Muskathlon is an ultimate endurance event – like a marathon – aimed at pushing you physically, mentally and spiritually. Set in a remote area overseas, a Muskathlon engages the whole person as we come together to fight injustice, bring hope and widen our horizons as we see the reality of this world and play our part in changing the world.
Physically: You will have the opportunity to take part in a Run 21Km, 42Km or 60Km, Trek 60Km or Ride 120Km. This is not a simple feat but you will need to reorganise your life and priorities to train for these distances.
Mentally: Muskathlons are organised in remote locations in collaboration with our Proud Partners (Compassion, Open Doors & A21). The aim isn't just to go and run, trek or ride but you will be exposed to the grassroot works that these organisations do in these locations. Further, each athlete is expected to raise $10,000AUD for the Proud Partner, this will push you mentally & spiritually as you approach friends, family, coworkers and anyone in your sphere of influence to raise funds for these great organisations.
Spiritually: As you get to experience a little bit of the work of these organisations in the days leading up to the event, you will be lead in times of devotion and challenged in your view of the world wide church, you will be challenged in how you view your life in Australia and as you raise funds and make your way through the event you will need to rely on God's Strength to pull you through.
