the course

Featuring kayaking on the beautiful Lake Macquarie, plenty of route choice on the mountain bike legs and an exciting run leg over rock platforms and around (or through) tidal rock pools, the Cams Wharf event is one not to miss.

Located a couple of hours drive North of Sydney this event is easily accessible as a day trip for Sydneysiders while being a real local event for Newcastle and Central Coast residents. Classic, Novice and Kids course options are all available – so bring the whole family for a day of adventure!

The Kids Course will involve trail running, mountain biking and kayaking legs with simple navigation. There will be approximately 1-2km of running and 2-4km of biking and 500m of kayaking. The Kids Course will be marked with arrows to help guide our young adventurers to the checkpoints. However keeping in the spirit of Adventure Racing some map reading is required. Parent/Guardians are encouraged to join their kids on the course to help with this.

    Race Schedule

    The event schedule will be finalised in the official event program released 1-2 weeks before race day on this website.
