The Jabulani Challenge is a stunning trail run through the Ku-Ring-Gai National Park in the north of Sydney. Predominantly on single track the trail has everything to offer from waterside tracks, rainforest bushland, steep hill inclines and creek crossings. Exploring some of the hidden waterways that Pittwater is famous for its hard to believe you are only 30 minutes from the heart of Sydney.
With three distances to choose from the event caters for hardened trail runners to social walkers.
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.
There are three course options all starting and finishing at Bobbin Head
- 45km event starting at 7:00am (sub 7 hours)
- 22km event starting at 8:00am
- 12km event starting at 9:00am
Cut-off times will only apply for the 45km event and be enforced at the start of the out and back section behind “The Landings”, approximately 1km after the Aid Station at the Sphinx, 25km into the event. Runners will need to be here by 10:45am, runners arriving after this time will be directed to continue along the rest of the race route as per normal.
