Operation Flinders Challenge
Take up the Challenge
Get ready for adventure! The Operation Flinders Challenge is set for the 8th & 9th October 2016 and is your chance to have fun, get fit and support a great cause. All funds raised from this event will solely support the Operation Flinders Foundation, helping transform the lives of young people "at risk".
Choose your distance
Designed as an endurance event, the Operation Flinders Challenge gives you the choice of 15, 57 or 85km distances to tackle in teams of two, three or four. The event also provides you with the opportunity to complete the trail as an individual for the 15km distance.
Where it all happens
Starting at 7.00am at the Morialta Conservation Park in the beautiful Adelaide foothills, you'll walk or run through the stunning Adelaide Hills and Mt Lofty Ranges, taking in some of Adelaide’s most scenic walking/running trails (including the spectacular Heysen & Yurrebilla). For the first time in the events history all event categories will start and finish at the same location.
So grab your friends, family or workmates and take up the challenge together. Push your limits and join the fun and join in on Adelaide’s premium adventure event.
As well as being a brilliant physical test and team endurance event, the real challenge is to raise much needed funds for the Operation Flinders Foundation.
The Operation Flinders Foundation runs an eight-day program for young people at risk in the northern Flinders Ranges of South Australia. Field exercises achieve the primary objective of Operation Flinders by placing participants in a remote outdoor environment where self-discipline, teamwork, co-operation, leadership and trust are intrinsic to survival. They face challenges as individuals and as part of the team and the program has a proven ability to bring about life-changing experiences for the participants.
