The Bupa Challenge Tour is your chance to experience a stage of the Santos Tour Down Under on the same day as the world’s best cyclists. Join thousands of other recreational riders at this unforgettable community event and celebrate your passion for cycling.


The 2014 Bupa Challenge Tour will take place on Friday 24th January between the Adelaide suburb of Unley and the coastal city of Victor Harbor.


Cyclists of all ages and abilities are welcome, with four distance options to choose from. Spectacular Fleurieu Peninsula scenery awaits all riders as they pedal towards the finish line, and for the very first time the Bupa Challenge Tour will be timed.

Many Bupa Challenge Tour participants choose to support the great work of Cancer Council South Australia, the Santos Tour Down Under’s official charity partner. Everyone who raises more than $1000 for the Cancer Council’s Ride for a Reason campaign will have their entry fee reimbursed.


There’s nothing like the satisfaction of finishing the Bupa Challenge Tour, relaxing with friends and then cheering on international cycling stars as they storm home. So get involved, ride for a reason and experience the thrill of being part of a UCI World Tour event!




Runners love chocolate. So what better way to celebrate running than by taking part in an event that starts and finishes at a chocolate factory?


Whether it’s the picturesque scenery, the fun–filled atmosphere, or the chocolate, the Cadbury Marathon has become Tasmania’s biggest Marathon festival.  Since 1984, runners have returned year after year to participate.


Held during the Tasmanian summer, it's a tourism hotspot with ideal weather conditions and plenty to see around the state.


The course takes in many of Hobart’s scenic delights, including the Derwent River, Mt Wellington and of course the famous Cadbury Estate. The Running Edge 5km event even takes participants around the stunning Claremont Golf Course


The Marathon festival caters for participants of all age and ability, with Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km, 5km and 1km events all included. All events apart from the 5km are held on predominantly flat roads, so for those gunning for a personal best the Cadbury Marathon festival could be ideal – provided you can wait until after the race to sample the chocolate.


If you’re craving chocolate, a good run, or both, take a trip to Hobart and get your teeth into a sweet running event this coming January!
