Upper Murray Challenge is the oldest and the most legendary Australian Multisport Race. It brings serious multisport lovers, weekend warriors and those out for some active fun to the NSW Snowy Mountains for a one day multi sports challenge.
The event features a 28 km mountain bike ride, 26km kayak downriver paddle and a 25km run set against the backdrop of a gorgeous spring alpine setting.
Competitors will tackle 28km of hilly forest trails, 4wd trails and open paddocks in section one alone, but despite the physical exertion, there will be plenty of breathtaking scenery to make up for it. After the ride, competitors will 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 25km 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 finishing in Corryong and is almost linear, support crew is required to transport the gear between legs and participants from the finish.
