31 MARCH SUN AM: Completely escape the “same-same” of regular road running and become absorbed in the adventure experience as you run along the edge of the Mitchell River, through tracks, water crossings, rock scrambles and so much more. SPECIAL ELEMENT OF AN ABSEIL
Our short course turns and crosses the River early and allows a safe crossing amongst the pools, with the gentle sound of rapids. The long course continues further along the edge of the River before crossing the river and taking in the bulk of the amazing rapids from the rocks and trails that line its edges. This Adventure run has a couple of safe sections to cross the river away from rapids with rope crossings.
The trails in Mitchell River NP create an awesome course for beginners and juniors with lots of fun without the technical challenges of the longer courses. More adventurous runners looking for a little more adventure might opt to undertake the Enduro event, a longer distance with more technical sections to negotiate but this course should be achievable for beginners that are really up for a challenge. For the real adventurer, and most fun, the Ultra is your option; a long cross country course with lots of fun sections interspersed with some technical challenges. *Turn this into a real adventure weekend by tackling our stage race and taking on some mountain biking and paddling in the same area on Saturday 30th March as part of Adventurethon Demolish East Gippsland *
