Your chance to run or walk up Mt Chincogan is on again for Saturday September 18.

Restarted by the Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce in 2017 after a 16 year hiatus, the Chinny Charge was cancelled last year owing to COVID-19.

‘We are really pleased to get the Chinny Charge up and running again after the challenges of the last year,’ said chamber president, Jenelle Stanford. ‘This is a great community event that gives people a chance to enjoy the beauty of our local mountain once a year. I would like to thank all the landholders who have once again come on board to open up the Chinny Charge route to the public.’

Register now

The race and walk is open to runners and walkers aged 12 and over, and there will be a separate children’s challenge to the base of the mountain, which leaves at 1.30pm before the main event at 2pm. The race will begin with staggered starts – walkers start from 2.45pm. Prizes are $500 for the first female and male professional runners, $250 for the first female and male local runners, as well as a number of trophies, including the Kevin Moran memorial shield.
