Adventurethon's National Challenge takes place in North Queensland's largest urban city - Townsville. Known as the "Dry Tropics" of NQ, Townsville holds many spectacular features one being located adjacent to the central center of the Great Barrier Reef.
There are 5 courses to choose from to suit all types of fitness levels. Courses can be completed in teams or individually.
Ultra Adventurethon is hard-core, catering for top end endurance athletes across the sports of paddling, mountain biking and trail running as well as the mentally tough social athlete who loves a personal challenge to discover what they can muster when the gauntlet has been thrown down.
Dirty Endurance Duathlon is the perfect choice for landlubbers - those wanting a mentally and physically tough challenge to rival the ultra without the paddle leg.
Enduro Adventurethon is a shorter multi sport course over the same terrain, significantly reducing the paddle and run legs and slightly decreasing the bike leg. Still demanding, it can be a stepping stone from introductory to ultra events in the future or an opportunity to focus on speed without the drain of the longer distances.
Taste of Adventurethon is just that, a tantalising try out of each of the three disciplines at distances that just about anyone can achieve in an hour or two. Experienced athletes can also treat it as a sprint course. This is a great event for teams, with each competitor participating in their favourite leg or conquering all three side-by-side.
Junior Adventurethon encourages up and coming young athletes from 8-12 & 13 to 17 to have a go on their own or in a team in a closely supervised introductory but challenging event expected to last 1hour, up to two hours.
