Mount Kosciuszko Challenge 2018 including the inaugural “Parliament to the Peak (P2P)” Cycle Ride
The Mount Kosciuszko Challenge is an annual event hosted by Rare Cancers Australia to raise awareness and much-needed funds for Australians diagnosed with a rare and less common cancer. Join us for the climb from Thredbo to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko on Saturday 2nd March 2019. The view from the top is spectacular and the journey towards it is breathtaking. Get involved, enjoy one of Australia's most beautiful landscapes and help the over 52,000 Australians diagnosed each year with a rare and less common cancer.
This year we’ve added an additional challenge for those who love to cycle. The Parliament to the Peak (P2P) cycle ride will commence at Parliament House, Canberra at 9.00am on Thursday, February 28th, stopping at Cooma overnight and finishing in Thredbo Village on Friday afternoon.
