    Get ready to take on the ANZAC Day Challenge.

Entries for the second annual ANZAC Day Challenge have opened and interested participants can now register.

Organisers have also announced that the event has partnered with leading veterans support service Solider On and all participants are encouraged fundraise to support this.

“Soldier On is very proud to partner with the ANZAC Day Challenge under the banner ‘Commemorate, Challenge, Care’ to help our wounded warriors,” said Soldier On Chairman, LTGEN Peter Leahy. 

“It’s events like this that show the men and women of our defence forces that we will always have their backs and their sacrifices have not gone unnoticed.”

Starting from Manly-Warringah War Memorial Park at Manly Dam, the challenge is staged on a course of scenic trails throughout Kuringai and Garigal National Parks in Northern Sydney, divided into three legs.

Participants will return to the event hub at St Ives Showground on completing each leg. They will cover the total course in 24 hours; this time limit makes it accessible to those who want to trek the course.

Due to demand, organisers have also added range of other shorter distances and events for participation – the Hill 60 Challenge (25km), the Nek Challenge (40km) and the Lone Pine Challenge (65km), all named after a significant Gallipoli campaign battle. 

Specific details about the different course structures are available on the event website and all interested in participating can register there. There is limited capacity, so register early to avoid disappointment.
