INTRODUCTION

The Rydweld Porcupine Gorge National Park Challenge is in its 16th year, with the event successfully growing each year. The 2016 Challenge will be held on the weekend of the 18th and 19th June. 
 
This unique event challenges participants with a diverse 8km course through the base of the Porcupine Gorge National Park, 74km north of Hughenden. The Challenge is open to many fields of participants, from serious runners to bushwalkers, with categories for open men's and ladies, first local resident under 16, and 12 years and under girls and boys. Participation walks are also available for the "not so serious" participants.
 
The 2010 Challenge saw the introduction of a second event held at Mount Walker on Sunday after the Porcupine Gorge Challenge. This ‘Fun Run' had categories for seniors, juniors, teams and novelty prizes, and will be continued in 2016.
 
Flinders Shire Council continues to support the event and past years have seen a major increase of marketing and promotion as a result of funding.  In addition to this support, sponsorship is also vital to ensure the event's success.
 

The development of a more professional image with a new logo, website and online registration for participants was completed in 2010. The website has become one of the event's major marketing tools, enabling us to keep participants informed.  We have also introduced an eNewsletter reaching past participants so they can receive up-to-date information.  In 2014 a Facebook page which also introduced giving access to greater audience as well.
