5th Annual 42 Hour Challenge

Date: 13/11/2020 – 15/11/2020

Time: 5 pm on 13/11/2020 until 11 am on 15/11/2020

Location: Suncorp Stadium

Welcome to the 5th Annual 42 Hour Challenge, hosted by the 42 for 42, at Suncorp Stadium, from Friday the 13th of November till Sunday the 15th. With your attendance and support to this year’s challenge, it helps us continue to reach the goal of building the Afghanistan War Memorial Garden.

The challenge takes place on the concourse of Suncorp Stadium. Walkers and teams will move around the stadium concourse with the weight in their packs for the duration of the time allocated to them.

At the end of the challenge on Sunday we will again hold a service in Suncorp Stadium to honour the fallen from Afghanistan as well as all those that served our country in the war. This service will be a live feed on our Facebook due to COVID-19 restrictions.

We will be offering 3 Packages to accommodate both teams and individuals looking to help raise money that will go towards the building of our Afghanistan War Memorial Garden.

42 Hour Challenge Teams

8 Hour Challenge Teams

42 Hourly Challenge

For 42 hours, the 42for42 Team, along with families and friends of our Afghanistan Fallen will carry 42 kg in 4 packs representing our fallen soldier.

This hour is about walking alongside the 42for42 team & families, whilst honouring the Fallen soldier, with each hour representing and honouring one of our fallen (see below). 

You can sponsor an hour during the challenge for $100.

Once registered, we ask that all participates arrive 30 mins before each start time which would be on the hour dedicated to each fallen soldier. This so we can give the safety brief, and do the COVID-19 safety requirements, sign into the stadium and check over the equipment you will be carrying.
