Chal­lenge your way around lake

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT -

UP for a real chal­lenge?

The in­au­gu­ral Lake Eil­don Chal­lenge is to be held on Satur­day, April 5, start­ing in Mans­field.

This new multi-sport event com­prises 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.

You can do the whole event as an in­di­vid­ual or put a team to­gether and do one leg each.

The cy­cle leg can also be done as a sin­gle event.

The event will start with a 98km cy­cle from Mans­field to Eil­don.

At Eil­don you will rack your bike and head to your kayak.

The kayak tran­si­tion area is next to the Eil­don Al­liance boat ramp on a gravel area – we rec­om­mend you bring stands for your kayak or at least blan­kets to put un­der your boat.

The sec­ond leg is a 25km pad­dle from Eil­don to Bon­nie Doon.

You will zig-zag your way through the river arms, guided by boats and land­marks.

To fin­ish you run a 21.1km half marathon mostly along the rail trail from Bon­nie Doon to Mans­field.

If you want to be in­volved in an­other way, you can vol­un­teer for part of the day - con­tact [email protected] for de­tails.
