The idea was born on the bench press when someone said to Richard “how cool would it be to have an obstacle race at St Pauls, the facilities would be perfect!” Knowing all good ideas came to those while on the bench press, Richard looked into the possibility of using school grounds.
After careful consideration Richard rang Josh and asked whether he would like to come on board. Josh was keen and The Holt Bolt was born. Set up for each Bolt takes about 1 month. OSCO Pty Ltd come and reshape or build new obstacles, Hartwig Earth Movers dig the trenches, Josh pumps out advertising, Kylie and Ash make admin look like a breeze and Richard and Brad mark out the course and make adjustments to any of the common obstacles. Speedy Bins and Brendale Produce deliver the skip and Hay Bales one week before each event.
After each race feedback is gathered from participants and marshals alike and the course is modified adding in any necessary improvements! We aim to just keep getting better and providing our Bolters with a unique and special obstacle racing experience with many happy memories.more info
