The ultra undurance Dual Mission will place participants in extreme conditions where they must stay in the moment and focus to successfully complete and 'survive' the mission.

This is the ultimate undurance event where participants will face the elements, evaluate their options and make decisions that will ultimately determine the outcome of their mission.

The Trail Jammie route will be a test of character. Some will stop for a moment to enjoy the views, others will focus on their own survival  and mission.

The Trail Light Duty route can be completed by most trail runners - to Conquer it, all you need to do is Dare entering the event.

The never say die attitude permeates through everything we do.

THE REWARD...

Those that conquer the Recce Mission will become the proud owners of the stainless steel Recce Mission dogtag

Not everybody will conquer the Recce Mission. Those that do not finish it be classified as ‘Jammies’; most of these will keep trying until they become the proud owners of the coveted Recce Mission dogtag!
