Join us this year to raise money and support local medical research at St George and Sutherland Medical Research Foundation and University of Wollongong.

The Michael Tynan Walking Challenge for medical research will take place again this year on 24 October 2020.

Walk Information.
The Coast track which we will be walking is located in Sydney's Royal National Park, and we will be starting this epic walk from Otford. Along your journey, you will enjoy incredible coastal lookouts, swimming spots, seasonal wildflowers and whale watching along this challenging 26km track raising much needed funds for medical research.

At times you may feel as though you're falling behind but rest assured you won't be left alone on the track. Thanks to our registered guides from AFS and safety check point by Optus, each challenger is tracked on their journey so that you won't get lost.

We will also be following all guidelines provided to ensure social distancing and hand sanitising throughout the event.

Along your journey through the Royal National Park, you will have designated areas in which you can stop and rest. We will also have a lunch stop where you can create your own sandwich with meats from Black Forest and enjoy gelato before heading back onto the track. We want you to be able to take in all the beauty surrounding you on your walk, and if you find yourself feeling tired just let one of the staff know and we can shuttle you to the next breakpoint.

Entry fee will include:
1 x Challenge party ticket (valued at $100 per person)

1 x Shirt

1 x Hat

Breakfast and lunch are provided.
