Murray QuadCobram, Victoria, AU

Murray Quad is a highly anticipated event that takes place on The Murray, Australia's longest and most iconic river!

In the past the Murray Quad was a quadrathlon, a race involving 4 sports; Swimming, Running, Cycling and Paddling over a 141km course that started in Yarrawonga and finishes in Tocumwal on the mighty Murray River. This test of endurance proved quite a challenge for the average weekend warrior, so this year, we have set a new challenge - one that is attainable for even all athletes alike!

This year, the event will be held over 2 days with each day highlighting one sport: paddling on Saturday and running on Sunday.

Participants can register for one event separately, both events as an individual, or both events as a part of a relay team.

Those who choose to paddle 25km and run a half marathon individually over the 2 days have the chance to be the first king or queen of the Murray!

AUD $5 - AUD $140

What you need to know about obstacle races

Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) involves a competitor travelling on foot overcoming various physical challenges or obstacles. The most common form of these are a combination of mud and trail runs, and the big players in the space are Tough Mudder, Spartan Race & Born Survivor.

Different obstacle event types

The obstacles used are often similar to those used in military training and tend to include climbing over walls, carrying heavy objects, traversing bodies of water, crawling under barbed wire and jumping through fire. They’re epic when done with friends, and these events are big on the social side so get a team together, get the war paint on and get ready for big celebrations and post-race beers.
