Australian Alpine Ascent – Extreme Triathlon. 3KM SWIM, 113KM BIKE , 22KM RUN…The Worlds Toughest Daylight Triathlon – TEST YOUR METTLE!

This is quickly becoming the benchmark endurance event in the Southern Hemisphere and will test even the toughest of competitors and those willing to take the challenge ‘INTO THIN AIR’.

This event will be up there with the likes of Norseman and has been designed to really test an individual. It’s not just about distance, it’s about altitude, it’s about unpredictable weather, it’s about hills – big hills, competitors will be running to the highest peak in Australia.

Due to the nature of the course and safety requirements, entries will be capped, with everyone vying for the ultimate ‘AAA Extreme Finisher’ status.

Australian Alpine Ascent - triathlon SWIM

THE SWIM – 3KM

The swim will be held at the picturesque Lake Jindabyne and see you do 3 laps of a course. While it may be considered the tamer of the three legs, competitors shouldn’t be complacent. The challenge of altitude, weather and what’s in store is enough to set the stage of a big event.

Australian Alpine Ascent - triathlon BIKE

THE BIKE – 113KM

The ride starts at 900m altitude and the 113km bike leg will see you riding to the famous Dead Horse Gap, ‘The Gate’ into the Murray River Valley. From here you will head back towards Jindabyne VIA Bullocks Flat for a drink stop. After leaving Bullocks Flat you will ride to Charlotte Pass Village, this ride has you climbing over 3200 vertical metres, and will be your T2 area.

Australian Alpine Ascent

THE RUN – 22KM

Now the real challenge begins – the ascent to Australia’s highest peak. Participants will be winding their way up from Charlotte Pass Village, to Charlotte Pass and to the start of the Summit Trail before beginning most gruelling stretch – a 9km climb to the peak of Mt Kosciuszko. Once at the peak, competitors can take a moment to soak it all in before they make the final 9km descent to the finish line at Charlotte Pass Village.

SUPPORT CREW

“So you think this race is all about YOU, then consider the nerves and preparation for your COMPULSORY SUPPORT CREW”

Your support Crew will be with you all the way (except the swim). They will be there when you exit the water, to help in your transition from swim to bike. They will be allowed (at set points) to refuel and give or take clothing (depending on the weather conditions), we don’t call this event EXTREME for nothing.

Once they help you off the bike at T2, they will have the opportunity to ride (mountain bike) next to you to Rawsons Pass, then walk or run to the top of Kozi (STRICTLY NO BIKES from Rawsons to the top of Kozi). You can then cruise back down the mountain to the finish line (Charlottes Pass) with your support crew for to our amazing finish line with a unique finishers reward like no other.
