Sarah Sargent recently competed in Australia’s first 24 hour enduro race.

True Grit has teamed up with the Obstacle Course Racing Association of Australia (OCRA) to bring an Australian 24 hour Obstacle Course enduro race.

Sarah came first ahead of 42 other females and 14th overall in male and female division out of 162 competitors.

After the first lap Sarah was already coming second – about 15 minutes behind the leader.

After friends Tania and Vanessa had completed three laps, Sarah had already smashed out five laps holding onto second place.

At lap six, at about 3am in the morning, Sarah took first position.

At day break Sarah was officially coming first – from there Sarah only had to complete another two laps to seal the win with no other competitor possibly able to beat her.

Sarah completed every obstacle with strength and style for the entire 24 hours, which included monkey bars, rope climbs, dam swims, muddy trenches, cargo nets, balance beams, sandbag and ammunition case carries, and not once did she look like faltering.

Sarah did not sleep and ate and changed in less than 10 minutes each lap and survived by drinking Milo and Powerade, eating casserole sandwiches and bananas.

With this win under her belt, Sarah now hopes to enter the elite category of a Sydney Spartan Race in October and compete against some of Australia’s best female obstacle racers to once again test her ability.
