O’Keefe Challenge

Sporting Events

29 Apr 2022 to 1 May 2022 Annual Event

Follow the spectacular O’Keefe Rail Trail from Bendigo to Heathcote, as it weaves its way through bushland, open fields, farms, and past Lake Eppalock.

Challenge yourself with the marathon, half marathon, 10km, 5km Run/Walk Against Dementia events, or get a team of seven together for the Ekiden Relay which follows the Marathon course.

Bike riding more your thing? Experience the O’Keefe Rail Trail by your own light (or moonlight if you’re lucky) with the Light The Trail social night ride from Axedale to Heathcote.

The O’Keefe Challenge is more than just a race – it celebrates fitness, nature and the community spirit of the Heathcote region. Your friends and family will enjoy the event village and family activities at the finish line, too.

So bring your friends, family or club, and spend a weekend experiencing the best of Heathcote.
