Don't put it off any longer, join with some friends, enter a team and experience the amazing camaraderie between all competitors and make Saturday 2nd October 2010 the date to experience the combination of a realistic challenge, great prizes, showbag, food and true country hospitality.

Visit for all the details. With only 7 weeks to Saturday 2th October, entries are flooding in for 8th running of the classic Snowy Hydro Upper Murray Challenge, which is widely regarded as Australia’s most scenic and challenging one-day multisport course, from Khancoban to Corryong.

If you love your adventure sports and the great outdoors then you must not miss this annual classic that consists of a 38km mountain bike, 26km kayak and a 25km run through some of the country’s most beautiful high country terrain, which is open to individuals and relay teams or attempt only a single leg. The ride leg takes in hilly forest trails, river crossings, 4WD tracks and open grazing country on the historic Khancoban Station, is not for the faint hearted. Paddlers take on the fast-flowing (and icy cold) Swampy Plains and Murray Rivers, fast current, waves and turbulent eddies, it too is a challenge even for the most experienced competitors. To round out the day, a 25km run that offers outstanding views and a serious test of your climbing and descending ability takes you to the finish, where you will be treated to friendly country hospitality. All up, the event will take competitors between 5.5 and 9.5 hours to complete.

Entries for the challenge are now being taken online at or competitors can call the race director, Peter Dikschei, on 0409 022 242.

Get in before 23 August and save on your entry fee with the early bird special of $120 for individuals. Entry fee after this date is $140 and last minute entries (after 20 September) are $150.

The prizes for this year’s event include an AVANTI mountain bike spot prize, Meek paddles, $500 cash plus prizes for the individual male and female open champions and a prize of $150 to the fastest male and female over each leg.
