The Jabulani Challenge is a spectacular 43km (or 24km) bush run or trailwalk in the heart of Sydney's northern suburbs.
For the serious bush runner, the 43km event offers a challenging course along the lines of the Oxfam or 6ft Track.
For the more casual runners, families and school kids the 24km is a really fun event that caters for a wide range of groups, and is more along the lines of the Great Nosh Footrace. While it is "long enough to keep you honest" it is achievable for most people and is a great community event.
...and for a great cause
The Jabulani Challenge is fundraising event for the Stellenbosch Community Development Programme (SCDP), a local community run charity supporting the Kyamandi school in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
