The 2018 ANZAC Day Challenge will be on 29 APRil. entries open january

The ANZAC DAY CHALLENGE is on again in 2017, so put Sunday 23rd April in your planners.

The event will again be raising funds to assist Soldier On in the vital work it does supporting our servicemen and women.

The change of date to the Sunday prior to ANZAC Day will remain the same in future years, allowing those participating in the event to be involved in both the Challenge and other ANZAC Day commemorations.

This event is staged on stunning trails across two National Parks within northern Sydney- the Ku-rin-gai and Garigal National Parks.

Due to low runner numbers in the 65km and 100km events in 2016, for 2017 we will not be offering these distances, and are focusing on the more popular distances of 25km and 40km, as well as introducing a new 11km course for those who prefer that shorter distance.

The 40km event known as The NEK 40 Challenge and is a point to point race which will begin at the Manly Dam Memorial at 6.45am  and finish at the event hub at St Ives Showground, with an 8 hour time limit.

The 25km event known as the Hill 60 Challenge will be the same as 2016 starting and finishing at St Ives Showground, and taking runners on a spectacular and scenic course down to Bobbin Head and back. This event will have a 6 hour 30 minute cut off.

In addition we have introduced an 11km event known as The Lone Pine Challenge, which will see runners venture into the St Ives Wildflower Gardens completing 2 laps of the main trails through the gardens before returning to the event hub at St Ives Showground.

We look forward to welcoming runners for a challenging run through  the magnificent and scenic trails of the Garigal and Ku rin gai National Parks, and St Ives Wildflower Gardens on Sunday 23rd April 2017.
