The 6th Lake Eildon Challenge will be on Saturday April 13th 2019. It’s a great summer goal, go solo if you’re strong or find some team mates if you want to share the fun around, either way it’s a great day out getting around the lake by bike, kayak and foot.
It’s a long multi-sport challenge but very achievable with regular training. The key is to have good bike fitness for the hilly 98km ride (it’s an amazing course). The paddle and run are relatively flat and not as long time wise, but you still need to do some 2hr sessions for those sports.
The event starts with a 98km cycle from Mansfield to Eildon, then a 25km paddle from Eildon to Bonnie Doon, and finishes with a 21.1km run from Bonnie Doon back to Mansfield.
If you want to join us just email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest, please note this is not an event, just a fun day out.
We suggest you start anytime between 7-8am. We will leave Mansfield with the event trailer and kayaks at 8am and drive to the Lake Eildon Alliance Boat ramp to meet the cyclists. Unload the kayaks and load the bikes, help all paddlers on their way then drive to Bonnie Doon to pick up the kayaks and deliver running gear for the run back to Mansfield. When you finish we suggest you clean yourself up and head to the Delatite Hotel to refuel and share your stories of the day.
