Upper Murray Challenge
Event dates to be confirmed: October 2021
The Upper Murray Challenge brings serious multisport lovers, weekend warriors and those out for some active fun to the NSW Snowy Mountains for a one-day multisport challenge. The event features: 28 kilometre mountain bike; 26 kilometre kayak paddle and 23.5 kilometre run.
Set against the backdrop of a gorgeous spring alpine setting. Competitors tackle 28 kilometre of hilly forest trails, 4WD trails and open paddocks in the cycling leg, but despite the physical exertion, there will be plenty of breathtaking scenery to make up for it. Competitors then face a kayak paddle challenge through fast-moving currents.
The last section provides stunning views of the Murray River Flats and the Main Range during a 25 kilometre run. This challenging competition is difficult but provides entrants with a sense of accomplishment like no other when completed.
The race course commences in Khancoban NSW, finishing in Corryong Vic.
Registration is open for Individual competitors, Relay teams of two or three, AR Duo teams (both participants stay together for the entire event and paddling equipment is supplied) and Single leg racers (yes, you can do just paddle, just ride or just run).
