Event Information

Take up the Challenge

Get ready for adventure! The HomeStart Operation Flinders Challenge is set for the 11th & 12th October 2014 and it's 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 HomeStart Operation Flinders Challenge gives you the choice of 18, 34, 50 or 100km 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 18km & 34km distances, or put together a team of friends or work colleagues to complete the 100km relay!

Where it all happens

Starting at the Adelaide University Sportsgrounds in the heart of Adelaide, you'll walk or run through the stunning Adelaide Hills and Mt Lofty Ranges, taking in some of Adelaide’s most scenic walking trails (including the legendary Heysen & Yurrebilla). The 100km participants will finish in Kuitpo Forest south east of Adelaide.

Get Involved

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.

When you register, you'll get a sponsorship book and be able to build your own easy online fundraising page via Everyday Hero. Ask your family, friends and colleagues anywhere for a donation by emailing the web link. Each donation is recorded on your page along with messages of encouragement from your supporters.

So get a head start by creating an online fundraising page today.


Great news all participants for this years event will receive an Operational Flinders Challenge training shirt. For those who wish to have this shirt prior to the event please register by the 23rd August, all registrations after this date will receive their shirts post Challenge due to the 4-6 week turnaround!
