Council supports Buderim 9
The Sunshine Coast Council has supported this years Buderim 9 challenge with a grant to cover some of the costs
Buderim 3, 6, 9 & Electric
The challenge of Buderim9 is real and it might not be for everyone. So there are some alternatives.
Buderim 6 is the first six hills of the full course to be completed in max 3 hours. Buderim 3 is the first three hills of the full course to be completed in max 3 hours. Buderim Electric is for those who now favour electric bikes and with that extra power, the challenge is to complete the Buderim 6 course in max 3 hours.
Register for any of these alternate events via the registration page.
Everyone will ride off together at 5am, under police escort, travelling from USC Stadium to the roundabout at the bottom of Dixon Rd & Karawatha Drive.
That's when you start your timing and you're off on your own individual challenge.
We are excited to be back in 2021!!
You can take up the challenge and become a member of the exclusive Buderim 9 Club and help The Pyjama Foundation support children in care.
The Challenge is an exciting annual 76km community cycling event covering nine hills around Buderim. It lasts for three hours and is held on the last Sunday every year before Christmas.
The challenge is to climb all nine hills in three hours. Riders must ride the hills according to the event map.
The event will look a little bit different this year due to COVID - we have kept it simple - so we can ride those hills!
All the riding parts of the event will be the same as previous years, some changes you will notice.
New registration costs and no rider jersey
Limiting on-ground activities under our COVID Event Plan
New fundraising sponsor – The Pyjama Foundation
We will still be running the with all safety areas covered. The event will continue to have all the appropriate safety measures including marshals in place, mobile First Aid and Police presence.
We look forward to having all Buderim 9 loyal riders join us this year. Next year we hope to return to the pre-Covid Buderim 9 format.
Win some great prizes! All you need to do to be in the draw is ask your mates to sponsor you and raise $50, sign on/off on the day.
The Buderim 9 Challenge is proudly supporting by The Pyjama Foundation.
