Join the Just Ski Nice 24-hour SkiErg Challenge

Could you last 24 hours smashing it out on the SkiErg for a good cause? We are beyond excited to be partnering with the Just Be Nice (JBN) Project – an Aussie social enterprise that provides housing, employment and improved mental health to those in need – to support their latest fundraising endeavour.

Men and women from gyms across the nation will be jumping into teams of four at 8AM Saturday March 14 and skiing through the night for 24 hours straight.

The challenge is a great example of how hardship is more easily endured with support and the right teams of people around you. Something we aspire to bring to every person who needs help,’ says Founder of the JBN Project and 24-hour Just Ski Nice participant, Josh Jones

Feel you have what it takes? It’s not too late to sign up! Simply reach out to Josh at the JBN Project or fellow challenge organiser Clay Carey for further details and to get involved. Or if you would like to donate, head to their Go Fund Me page

Team spotlight
In celebration, we interviewed one of Melbourne’s elite all-female teams on why they are pumped to get involved in the challenge, their greatest fears for the day and how they will be prepping to perform the extraordinary! Read our Q&As with Kylie Massi, Narissah Shaw, Sarah Fry and Georgia Beeby.

Their game plan
Fifteen minutes on, 45 minutes off the SkiErg each – although this may change as the night goes on, depending on how everyone is feeling. Hydration, fuel and fun are top priorities, say these amazing women.
