ADVENTURETHONMURRAY BRIDGE

We are releasing our Adventurethon Stage Race format  in Murray Bridge South Australia.

Check out what the town looks like with this Aerial Footage & Stay tuned for our course preview video due soon.

This is an Adventurethon event which has been pulled apart to create 3 stand alone individual races (Run, MTB & Paddle), with times that can be tallied together in a stage race format at the end to find an overall champion. However, it can also can be raced as a team, in pairs, or simply just attempt your favourite leg.

The Murray Bridge event will feature an amazing tour of the area taking in some challenging but fun mountain biking, adventure running and paddling over 2 days. Bring your family and mates and settle in for some great camping and entertainment with seriously easy logistics and a warm atmosphere at the heart of the weekend.

Murray Bridge was established when a road bridge over the Murray River (which is how the city got its name) was completed in 1879. It was followed in 1886 by the Adelaide-Melbourne railway line which guaranteed that the city’s importance as a vital link across the river was assured. Murray Bridge is a great Hub for visitors who want to explore the surrounds of the Powerful Murray River with paddle steamers, houseboats and plenty of water activities to participate in.

The Lavendar  Federation Trail also starts in Murray Bridge which is a 325km linear walking trail through diverse countryside traversing the eastern flanks of the Mt Lofty Ranges. It begins at Murray Bridge and traverses the Barossa, Mid North and the Clare Valley regions to Clare. Part of the run is taking place on the trail so we hope you get a taste for it and want to come back and do future sections of the trail in the future.

Course description

If you are new to the sport, have children who want to get involved or paddling isn’t your best leg, but you still want to give it a go then this is for you. 2 km is a perfect distance to have a bit of fun, and push yourself, but not need all of the endurance and speed of the ULTRA & ENDURO options. Expect it to take between 15 & 25 minutes for most paddlers.

All forms of kayaks welcomed here from wide sit on plastics to sleek river and ocean racers, there are no rapids in this part of the river so any rudder will be fine to use.

Complete the course as an individual or double.

You can choose to do JUST 1 Stage (or 2 stages) or complete the full stage race (which is all 3 stages). It really is up to YOU, and your preferences. There are also multiple distances to choose from in each of the stages.
