Adventurethon Stage race Kalbarri has a multi-sport, multi-stage, format that includes events to suit every family member. Events are specifically designed with the capabilities of all competitors in mind, to ensure an amazing and fun filled weekend for all. You can choose to participate in paddling, mountain biking or running events over distances that suit your abilities whether you are an elite athlete, weekend warrior or first timer or junior. Compete in just one discipline or be adventurous and tackle two or all three disciplines. Run, ride, trek or paddle – we’ve got your course maps right here!

Paddlers explore the Murchison River between Murchison House Station and Kalbarri if you tackle the Ultra event, the longest of the three paddle distances. Beginners and Juniors tackle a short circuit that starts and finishes in Kalbarri.

Mountain bike courses explore the diverse and spectacular landscape around Murchison House Station, a working cattle property alongside the Murchison River. Apart from the great scenery you may come across herds of goats and cattle, just don’t crash as you watch them!

Runners are truly spoilt with two spectacular events. Run into and along the base of a gorge on the Murchison River and tackle an awesome abseil, and/or run the coastal cliff tops around Kalbarri. Which is the best, most spectacular, most awesome run? You probably need to do both to judge for yourself, we are still arguing about that question.

We can’t wait to see your excited faces and chat about the amazing adventure course/s you made it through, how you tried your first adventure race event, survived, and became hooked.

Adventurethon Kalbarri combines with the Kalbarri Lights Up Festival to keep you entertained the entire weekend! Make sure you check out all the activities happening on the Foreshore and get you glow costumes ready!
