Kalbarri Adventure Run showcases breathtaking views of amazing Gorge System and red rocks that Kalbarri is well known for.

Starting at the Z Bend Carpark inside the National Park, you head down a moderate track before getting to a series of ladders which take you down to the river access area heading upstream. The 11km course continues along the riverbed for a few km befor

e turning around and heading back towards the access track you came down on. After a short climb part way up the gorge there is an Abseil approx. 25m and then a fast finish with more uphill running back to the finish at the car park…BREATHTAKING for sure!

Terrain path down is grade 3, moderate track with various rock step downs. River bend is various rock hopping, grade 4 track. This scenic 11km trail run covers lots of the river and there may be some small pools of water to cross.

Adventurethon Courses are marked with coloured ribbon and signs. There is no need to navigate. You will need to be aware of your surroundings to follow the ribbon and signage.
