2018 will see the third edition of this gruelling event. "The Hendrix" is in memory the event director's grandson who was at the inaugural event in 2016, but sadly passed away suddenly three weeks later, at four months of age, due to SIDS. As this event is all about enduring adversity and raising money for children's health charities, it is only fitting that we participate in his memory.
Spend a day on this magic mountain testing your fitness and endurance, as you also benefit the lives of chronically sick kids and their families, through the donation of money raised to the Children's Hospital Foundation and the Humpty Dumpty Foundation through the 1200kms for kids charity team. Do it as a personal challenge, a dedication, training for other mountain endurance events such as the Kokoda or the Blackall 100 or just for fun. You can also get friends to sponsor you and make a donation via the online entry registration page.
