Good Day Mate! Welcome to VEM's newest virtual vacation, the Australia Down Under Virtual Challenge benefiting Peyton Manning Children's Hospital! We've landed you this time in beautiful Sydney, Australia. Australia offers beautiful beaches and breath-taking topography, a diverse culture, deep history, amazing cuisine and more! 

Select from the full 120 miles around the greater Sydney area, or simply stick close for the city vibes of our 60 mile course. Either way, you have between June 14 - August 8 to complete your distance! Whether you choose to complete your distance on Running, Walking, Biking or some other form of exercise, let's do this! There's even a Down Under Adventure Club, if you want to push yourself beyond the 120 miles. Along your journey, you can track your progress on the website. Weekly, we will share with you upcoming course highlights. Get registered today; there's a lot to see, and you won't want to miss any of it!
