Upstream Challenge

The ‘Upstream Challenge’ is a 50km or 20km walk (or run) from Docklands to Donvale along the picturesque Yarra River and Mullum Mullum trails.

Each participant must commit to raise a minimum of $200 in sponsorship. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible and 100% of donations go directly to the beneficiaries.

Where is it?

The Upstream 50km Challenge starts at Waterfront City in Melbourne’s Docklands precinct. It then progresses along a 50km route in the Melbourne Metropolitan area, making use of the scenic walking routes along the Yarra River. Four checkpoints break the 50km into approximately 10km sections. The Upstream Challenge concludes at Donvale Christian College for celebrations, food and activities.

The Upstream 20km Challenge starts at Yarra Flats. It then meanders along the Yarra River and Mullum Mullum Creek to the finish at Donvale Christian College. It has one checkpoint (CP4).
How does the event work?

Participants can enter the event in two different ways; register for the 50km or 20km Challenge as an individual or as a team.

Individual Entry: walk the either the 50km or 20km at your own pace.

Team Entry: walk the either the 50km or 20km as a team. Teams MUST stick together throughout the event, so if you are at different fitness levels or speed, we suggest you register as an individual.

Participants must nominate which beneficiary they wish to support. You can pass on your donations to one beneficiary or you can share your donation amongst the beneficiaries.
