The 2016 K2DC

The Katherine To Darwin Challenge is a 3-day cycle event from Katherine to Darwin. If you enjoy the great outdoors and the wonderful country that the Northern Territory has to offer, and want to ride with a crew that enjoys the same, sign up today. Not only will you have a wonderful cycle through the top end, but you’ll be helping raise funds for a wonderful organisation. Get involved today!

The 2015 cycle was such a success, and in no small part to our Major sponsors Wolpers Grahl, Real Estate Central and Control Fire Services as well as our Minor sponsors PH Electrical Services, United Airconditioning and Mechanical Services and NT Plumbing Maintenance Service  . We would also like to thank Ace Traffic Management, BranditNT, and Tutt Bryant Heavy Lift and Shift for their ongoing support.

About K2DC

Since 1991 Total Recreation has been highlighting the major role that leisure plays in our lives. At the heart of it is the believe that people with a disability ought to have the same opportunities to participate in sport as the rest of the community. So Total Recreation, a non for profit and community based organisation, was born.

The Katherine To Darwin Challenge raises funds for Total Recreation. Although operation funding is received from the Northern Territory Government, Total Recreation strongly relies on fundraising efforts to continue their work in our community. In 2015 we raised $51,500 and in 2016 it is hoped that the Katherine To Darwin Challenge will raise $80,000 for Total Recreation.
