ANZAC Day Challenge in Sydney, NSW

The ANZAC Day Challenge is staged on stunning trails across two National Parks within northern Sydney: the Ku-rin-gai and Garigal National Parks. In 2017, there are 40km, 25km and 11km trail run events.

The 40km event, known as The NEK 40 Challenge, is a point to point race beginning at the Manly Dam Memorial and finishing 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.

This year sees the introduction of 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.
