By BBN Staff: The Annual Wonder Woman Challenge between women of the various disciplines in the security forces of Belize started yesterday.
Female officers from the Belize Coast Guard (BCG), the Belize Defense Force, and the Belize Police Department are partaking in the two-day event that includes four physically demanding challenges.
The challenge includes a six-mile relay, a run-swim-run competition, the BCG Medley in which the teams must run while carrying four different burdens, and an obstacle course competition.
This year’s competition takes place at the Belize Coast Guard Headquarters, 4 ½ miles George Price Highway.
The Wonder Woman Challenge is meant to foster teamwork, good sportsmanship, and a way to encourage the recruitment of women into the security sector.
Members of the public are invited to support their favorite team.
