Event Wrap Up

Thursday, September 8, 2022

The rescheduled 2022 Jabulani Challenge took place last month and what a STELLA day it was! Nearly 800 runners took on the 12 KM, 22 KM, and 45 KM courses. Trail conditions were prime after a period of dry conditions following the rain earlier in the year. The Jabulani Challenge true to its name, is a technical and challenging course with steep climbs and varied terrain through the lush Sydney Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Runners start and finish at Bobbin Head as the loop course takes full advantage of the surrounding National Park trails.

Amongst the many highlights of the day was the incredible sight of Rhett Gibson flying through the yellow finish arch with a course record time of  03:48:28. A massive congratulations to all other podium finishers and to all who took on the Jabulani Challenge 2022.

A big shout out to the large number of volunteers who helped us to run a smooth event for our participants. The red volunteer army was all along the course, cheering on the runners and adding to the atmosphere at the event.

The Jabulani Challenge will be back in 2023! Don’t be a fool, be sure to mark your calendars for Saturday 1 April and start planning your next assault on this classic and challenging course.
