We hope to see you Saturday April 1st 2017 (entries are open) for the Lake Eildon Challenge! It’s a long event but very achievable with regular training. Past participants have done well if you 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. The Lake is just under 80% full so it’s a great year to do it!
You can tackle the whole challenge solo or do one or two legs as part of a team. When entering everyone enters themselves so you tick the waiver and receive event newsletters.
In 2017, the event will start with the first wave at 7:30am. Presentations will happen behind the Mansfield Visitor Centre (where the event finishes) when the majority of participants have completed the course, we anticipate around 4:30pm. There is no parking allowed in the Mansfield Visitors Centre, you must park behind the Visitors Centre.
After this, everyone is welcome to gather for dinner at the Delatite Hotel in Mansfield where you can recount stories of your day out around the Lake!
