The Jadotville Challenge 2021


The Jadotville Challenge 2021 Join ONE Ireland as we cycle, walk or run a combined 24,000km (Athlone to Jadotville) over 5 days, from 29th June to 3rd July, to mark the 60th anniversary of the Jadotville Siege & to raise funds for homeless veterans of the Defence Forces.




This challenge has been created by ONE to honour the 60th Anniversary of the 157 JADOTVILLE TIGERS from the 35th Infantry Battalion who fought unaided for 5 days in 1961.

The challenge will allow you to contribute whatever kilometres you wish to a combined total of 24,000 kilometres over the 5 days of the event.

Although it is predominantly a cycling challenge, you can take part by either cycling, running, walking, swimming or whatever form of exercise you choose.
