Don’t Miss Out!17th January 2019
The Jabulani Challenge is back for 2019 and once again will offer discerning runners some of the best trails to be found anywhere. Predominantly on single track the course has everything to offer from waterside tracks, rainforest, steep hill inclines and creek crossings. Exploring some hidden waterways its hard to believe you are only 30 minutes from the heart of Sydney.
With three distances (45km, 22km & 12km) to choose from the event caters for hardened trail runners to the more casual runner. The start and finish is at Bobbin Head, making it logistically easy, but more importantly a great spot on the edge of the Pittwater for a family day out.
Once again the Jabulani Challenge is an accredited event with the International Trail Running Association (iTRA). Finishers of the 45km course will earn 2 iTRA points (3 Mountain points) while finishers of the 22km course will earn 1 iTRA point (2 Mountain points). Some trail running events, especially in Europe and North America, require runners to have a certain number of iTRA points (or Mountain points) to qualify for these events.
As an accredited iTRA event the Jabulani Challenge will also contribute to all finishers ‘Performance Index’. Some trail running events use this ‘Performance Index’ to determine start waves or similar so runners looking to improve their ‘Performance Index’ should look no further than the Jabulani Challenge.
With a course distance to suit everyone and trails that will have you smiling from ear to ear from the get go there really is no excuse not to…
