Stuart Ford

The Stu Ford Memorial Challenge is in honour of Stu Ford who suddenly passed away on the 26th November 2021. He had planned to complete the Everesting challenge alone, by repeatedly cycling up Garie Beach Hill in the Royal National Park to the staggering heights of 8,848 metres, the height of Mount Everest.

Due to road closures, we will be unable to complete the Everesting challenge that Stu set himself, however we will take part in a 16km Time Trial that Stu himself was Race Director for a number of years.

This event will be raising funds for The Heart Foundation, Love Mercy and The Black Dog Institute, as Stu had intended.

Cycle Event

Stu was the Race Director for the Cronulla Triathlon Club (CTC) Time Trial Series up until his passing, so there is a synergy to us hosting an event in his honour that he would otherwise have been coordinating. The 16km Time Trial will be taking place from 7am on Saturday the 11th November from Greenhills along the Kurnell Road bike path, to the Kurnell roundabout and returning to Greenhills via a dog leg out along Sir Joseph Banks Drive.

What you need to do

Its as simple as register below for the event, and pay the $50 donation (electing your preferred split to the three charities) Those that were registered for the previous everesting challenge still need to re-register for this event but do not need to make another donation.

The event will be organised at zero profit thus all proceeds will be paid to the charities via donations. If you have any questions relating to registration or maximising fundraising please contact

A few days out from the event you will be emailed additional details about the day and your allocated start time.
