Legacy Canungra Combat Challenge competitors are undaunted by obstacles and the COVID-19 pandemic is one more challenge we are ready to face, together.

We’ve made the decision to postpone this year’s C3 until 10 October 2020. Registrations for C3 2020 will remain open and to stay up to date, like our Facebook page and follow Legacy Brisbane on Instagram.
C3 registrations open Monday 2nd March at Midday (AEST)
You and your team will be tested on this 7km course complete
with soldier exercises, obstacles and bush trails.
1. Soldier Exercises
The army will be putting your team and mateship to the test with a series of challenges, designed to test you mentally and physically.
2. Memorial Bush Trail
Take a moment to reflect as the Bush Trail takes you through the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam Memorial, a commemorative site in honour of all the men and women who served in Vietnam.
As you view the Roll of Honour, stone memorials and memorial walls, you’ll have a chance to reflect and commemorate the brave individuals who sacrificed everything for their country.
3. Canungra Obstacle Course
You and your team will take on Canungra’s famous Obstacle Course – an ultimate test of endurance and mateship as you complete a series of obstacles. Obstacles include balance walks, tunnel crawls, horizontal and vertical cargo nets, coiled barbed wire fences plus fun new obstacles never undertaken during Legacy’s Canungra Combat Challenge before.

Legacy Brisbane cares for the families of those who have served our country, including those dependants who are living with a disability. Legacy provides social and financial support to help them thrive despite having lost a parent. One such person is Kathy, whose father served in the Middle East and New Guinea during WW2. Legacy cares for Kathy and her mum, with Kathy being an active participant in the social outings provided by Legacy.
Imagine losing your father at just four years old. This was the reality of William, whose father passed away from a service related illness. William been supported by Legacy, through our Youth services “I get to go on Legacy Youth Camps with other kids just like me, and I know that we will be mates for life. Part of what makes those camps so special is that I feel like I can be myself, and not the boy who lost his Dad.”
Elizabeth is truly a strong inspiration, having lost both her Dad and her partner to military service, and she has been a part of Legacy for over 40 years. “I lost both my father and my husband to military service, and Legacy was there for both my mother and my family. I can’t thank Legacy enough for their caring support to me and my family for over the past 40 years.”
