The Upper Murray Challenge

Posted by Maria Plyashechko on Friday, September 22, 2017

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 multi sports challenge. The event features a 38 km mountain bike ride, 26km kayak paddle and a 25km run set against the backdrop of a gorgeous spring alpine setting. Competitors will tackle 38km 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 Beach Duathlon is a run-bike-run game accessible to all: young and old, top sporting and recreational. The start is on the beach at the Langevelderslag in Noordwijk. The run goes over the beach towards Zandvoort and through the dunes back to the Langevelderslag. The bike goes on the other side, first through the dunes towards Noordwijk and across the beach back to the Langevelderslag.

The trail is quite heavy. Even if the weather is good and the beach is hard, it’s really hot. So make sure you get well prepared at the start.
