"Hi Claire,


Due to the extremely dangerous weather conditions in South Eastern Australia this weekend, the organising committee have decided to extend the ‘Hoppet 2020-do it your way’ finishing date by a week to include the weekend of the 29th and 30th August.

To date we have over 350 internationals entered, representing 31 nations, making this the largest international field in the history of the event!

Total entries have passed 1300, still a bit short of the record of 1604 entries in 1996.

Wouldn't it be fantastic if we managed a record number of entries to give us something to celebrate in this COVID year. So if you have not entered yet, why not give it a go and get your souvenir neck buff (reusable face covering) in the mail. If you have already entered, spread the word and ask some friends or family to enter. At $10 it is really good value!

Enter yourself and your family NOW
