Steyr Arms brings the 2nd Annual Steyr Challenge to Seetaler Alpe in Austria, challenging teams from all over the world to compete for the title of “Toughest Hunters in the Alps.”

The match puts a four-person team, plus one alternate, through a seven-kilometer mountain run with 300 meters of elevation gain, different shooting disciplines, abseiling and sawing. The Steyr Challenge will allow a maximum of 25 teams representing countries from around the globe to compete in the match scheduled for Oct. 5.

Steyr Arms is currently on the hunt for teams to represent the U.S.The company says interested teams should send in an audition video detailing why their team wishes to meet the challenge head-on. The audition must be sent in before the deadline of July 15. Audition submissions are free; however, should the team be selected there is a $250 registration fee. Teams are also responsible for their own travel to and from Austria, though lodging and food will be provided at no additional cost. Teams must fly in by Oct. 4 to receive preliminary information and training on rifles used for the competition. The actual Steyr Challenge will occur on Oct. 5 with an awards ceremony after.
