The challenge will consist of 10 competitive events including a tactical driving course; a call for fire; a small arms shoot; a simulated chemical attack and recover; a simulated medical evacuation; a physical challenge; and offensive, defensive and degraded live-fire operations.

The final day will culminate in a friendship shoot before ending with an award ceremony.
