Kathmandu Adventure Series – Glenrock 2013

Event Date: Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd February 2013

Event Location: Glenrock State Conservation Reserve, Merewether (Newcastle NSW)

Short, fast and fun, and suitable for anyone and everyone with a real sense of adventure, the Kathmandu Adventure Series is designed to offer the perfect introduction to the exhilarating sport of adventure racing.

Designed for teams of two, the races are fun, fast and furious with teams having to change between three core disciplines several times during the event… Mountain biking, running / trekking, and kayaking. These non-stop events will take between two to six hours to complete so there is never any time to get bored or tired – you will constantly be challenged throughout the race, physically and mentally!

The courses consist of 15-25km of mountain biking, 5-10km of trail running/trekking and 2-4km of kayaking. There are multiple legs of each discipline, which add up to the distances quoted.


Volunteer Roles

Being an event marshall is an ideal way to see the challenge first hand (maybe you are considering to compete next time?) or as a means of offering your skills to assist the Kathmandu Adventure Series. We need volunteers for the following:
