Adventurethon National Challenge Townsville 2015

July 4, 2015 - July 5, 2015

Adventure racing returns to Townsville in ‘winter’ for Adventurethon at Pallarenda. This national challenge with we over the weekend of July 4-5, 2015.

So what can you expect from this iconic race?

Mountain Bike Heaven

It poses as a ‘must do’ for mountain bike lovers – “Under The Radar” is 17km of sweet flowy single track. There is also a section of road and wetlands to make it physically challenging.

Paddling Experience

Ultra competitors paddle through to Magnetic Island (should be pushing into the chop/swell), followed by a short trail run on the Island, and then a paddle back which is normally a great downwind run back to the HQ area.

Runner’s Delight

The run starts along the base of Mt Marlow, before ascending through small patches of dense tropical cover quickly reaching the summit which overlooks Magnetic Island and Palm Island, before meandering through more amazing ecosystems including gnarly vine covered trails framed by a technical granite descent to the HQ area.

Beginners & Juniors

Our beginners and juniors NEVER miss out on experiencing what we have to offer. With simple (but a bit challenging) courses they get a taste of purity of North Queensland.

This event will be the most fun course we have run to date, with each component being an amazing scenic and pleasurable experience… well mostly pleasure, but also pain:)

Bonus Cash Prize – Fastest Leg

There will be a $250 cash prize for the fastest split times for the bike course (ULTRA or DUATHLON), fastest first paddle (to Magnetic Island, ULTRA only) and fastest run leg (ULTRA only). A great chance for teams to shine!
