Whilst on a recent Queensland jaunt I wondered across the Townsville Adventurethon National challenge. Never one to back away from a challenge I decided to enter. Luckily I had my Kayak and trusty Giant mountain bike with me to be able to compete.
The short version of this story is, spectacular course from Townsville kayaking 16.8km along the coast and then across to Magnetic Island, a 2.5km run up to a Hawkins look out and back, another 8km paddle back to Pallarenda Beach Townsville, followed by a 28km mountain bike predominantly on a great new single track followed by a gruelling 15km run including a run and scramble up and along summit of Mt Marlow....culminating in a race WIN! Great fun, lots of people and nice to escape to some warmer weather, so next time your traveling with your Kayak and MTB make sure you give the local comp's a go.... who knows you just might come away with a win too.
