The Freycinet Challenge is a multi-sport event, running over two days through the stunning Freycinet Peninsula at Coles Bay, which is on the East Coast of Tasmania. If you’re a paddler, a road cyclist, a runner or a mountain biker, this is a challenge that will push your limits in one of the most beautiful places in Australia.
The Course: 1-day or 2-day
The Freycinet Challenge is divided into 8 separate stages, with 4 stages running on each day - focussing on a particular discipline, either Trail Running, Sea Kayaking, Mountain Biking or a Road Bike Time Trial. You can take on the Challenge as part of a team or as a solo competitor, with options to take part in the full 2-day competition, or the 1-day competition.
Taking on the Freycinet Challenge as a solo athlete is the penultimate competition and is the race that will earn you the biggest rewards. The solo competitors will need to complete all the stages individually on each day to win the race.
You can take on the Freycinet Challenge as part of a 2 person team or a 4 person team, with your team members taking on their preferred disciplines (running, paddling or cycling) and only taking 1 or 2 stages of the race each day.
