Freycinet Challenge at Coles Bay in Tasmania

The Freycient Challenge Course

8 gruelling stages to push your limits

The Freycinet Challenge is divided into 8 separate stages, with 4 stages running on each day. Each stage focusses on a particular discipline, either Trail Running, Sea Kayaking, Mountain Biking or a Road Bike Time Trial. The course has remained the same for many years, giving competitors the opportunity to race in similar conditions every year.

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. There are four stages on each day of the Challenge.

Day 1: Saturday 8 October

All the 2-day competitors start on the first day at stage 1.

Day 2: Sunday 9 October

All the 1-day competitors start from stage 5 on the second day, joining the participants that have already completed stages 1-4.

Maps are available for each stage and they can be found by clicking on the links above.

You will be competing in your age category, with separate categories for male and female competitors. The teams competition has categories for all male, all female or a mix of male and female participants.

For the first time in 2022, we've got a Junior teams competition, which has shorter stages for our up-and-coming athletes.
