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!

Australian Outback MarathonTerrigal, New South Wales, AU

The Australian Outback Marathon has four running events; the full marathon, half marathon, 11km run and 6km run which all use sections of the same course. The terrain varies throughout the course; with most on unsealed roads, bush trails and tracks. The red earth route takes runners on a journey through Australias Outback with stunning views of Ayers Rock.

Kilcunda Half Marathon and George Bass Coastal RunKilcunda, Victoria, AU

Enjoy running along rolling grassy slopes and sandy beaches and striding up gentle hills located between the cliffs overlooking the Southern Ocean and rolling green fields with cattle grazing contentedly.

This is definitely a run for the beginner trail runner, the roadrunner that is jaded and wants to get out there for the great scenery and great running and just wants to be re-invigorated by the great outdoors, as well as the experienced trail runner just wanting a great run.

Starting in the reserve adjacent to the caravan park, this delightful run takes in some picturesque coastline and deserted beaches on an out and back course. After the run, there is the opportunity for a quiet drink and lunch over at the Kilcunda Pub or General Store and then an opportunity to explore the rail trail or Wonthaggi Coal Mine.

Participants are asked to be considerate of and give way to walkers and other track users. Water and first aid will be available at the start /finish at Kilcunda and at Punchbowl Road. Runners are responsible for their own safety and assume full liability for their participation.

There will be a pre-race briefing taking place just prior to the start. Weather conditions could be hot and sunny. All runners should be prepared with water, sun hat and sunscreen.
