PO2 Craig Blake Memorial Fitness Challenge
About The Fitness Challenge:
The PO2 Craig Blake Memorial Fitness Challenge is a mini triathlon for military and DND personnel, consisting of a 300m swim, a 6.5k mountain bike and a 2k run. Participants may swim, bike and run, or complete a single leg of the race as part of a team. The goal of the Fitness Challenge is to bring people of all fitness levels together to strive to do their best through friendly competition.
