The Black Hill Challenge is amongst South Australia's oldest trail running events, raising money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service and St John Ambulance. It is a gruelling event, but well-worth the effort.
This run takes you past some of the most beautiful scenery in the Adelaide Hills through the Black Hill Conservation Park.
It is run jointly for non-profit by the Lions Club of Rostrevor and the 4WD Adventurer's Club of SA for over 17 years.
