Challenge distances include 3.7km 7.4km and 11.1km to suit fun-runners through to elite athletes.Register as an individual, bring the family along to enjoy the family fun run, or get your mates involved and register a team.It promises to be a sensational day out with cracking prizes on offer for fundraising champions, including a trip to Hamilton Island.

This year funds raised from the Cross Country Challenge will be donated to Headspace – Australia’s National Youth Mental Health Foundation in an effort to support their mission: to provide early intervention mental health services to 12-25 year old’s.

Mental health matters. Brush off your running shoes and go the extra mile to support Headspace. The course is set entirely on parkland with no traffic to contend with. Whether you’re running for fitness, for fun or to support Headspace, we love that you’re a part of our Hills community.

Thanks to major sponsors Rotary Club of Castle Hill, Aveo Bella Vista, Orion Creative, Orange Blossom Festival and Medibank Private.
