Tribal Clash, the beach fitness competition for teams taking Europe by storm, is landing in Australia in 2019. Tribal Clash Australia will take place on Wollongong North Beach on the weekend of 9-10 February 2019. This is the third event in the forthcoming global competition series. Tribal Clash USA will be launching on Huntington Beach, California in June 2019, with further new events around the world in the pipeline.
Tribal Clash is a competition designed for functional fitness athletes. The athletes compete in teams of 6, consisting of 3 men and 3 women. The teams race in 6-7 individual timed and scored events during the two-day competition weekend, most of which take place on a purpose-built arena on the beach. The teams won't know what the events are until the very last minute, so they have to train for the unknown and prepare for anything. Every Tribal Clash competition is unique and the programming tests the athletes on all aspects of fitness: in past Tribal Clash events the teams have had to run, swim, carry and lift heavy objects such as atlas stones, climb over obstacles and up ropes, flip tyres and squat with logs. The events reward teamwork and tactical thinking. After two days, the top 24 teams advance to the Semi-Final, after which 12 teams are eliminated and the remaining 12 go head-to-head in a nail-biting final. All this happens to pumping tunes from live DJs and drummers.
Tribal Clash team tickets are like gold dust in Europe: Tribal Clash Portugal 2019 sold out in an hour, as the demand way exceeded the maximum capacity of 160 teams. Tribal Clash Australia is set to be an electrifying spectacle of fitness, with teams from all over Australia putting their training to the test.
Andrew Barker, Event Director said: 'We are excited to bring Tribal Clash to Australia, as we are keen to see the Australian fitness athletes take on some classic Tribal Clash workouts. Wollongong Beach is a fantastic venue for Tribal Clash, with great weather and good transport links being so close to Sydney - we already have a few UK teams booked to compete in Wollongong! We hope to inspire athletes of all levels to grab some friends and sign up, there is nothing more fun that throwing down on a beach in the sunshine with your best friends and that's what Tribal Clash is about!'
