The Nanga Challenge is a multi sport event with a focus on fun and challenge. It is about getting into the outdoors, challenging yourself while having a fantastic day out. The Nanga is a very good introduction to adventure racing for newcomers, and for the regular racer it is a great course to chase bragging rights over your mates.

The event starts with a paddle which goes upstream and comes back downstream. Distances are 11 or 15kms, depending on whether you have selected the “Nice” or the “Nasty” course. After that there is a tree covered mountain bike leg of either 19.2 or 30 km and a cross-country run of 9.1 or 12.5km. Participants can enter as a team, a pair or take on the course solo as an ironman or woman. The race is as competitive or as fun as you like to make it. Camping is available – enjoyment is compulsory.

Participants supply their own equipment and must be competent paddling in moving water and grade 1-2 rapids. If you are not sure, contact the race director to confirm suitability.

Course options 2017: 'Nice' & ‘Nasty’

Nice: 10k paddle, 20k ride and 10k run
Nasty [4hrs]: 15k paddle, 30k ride and 12k run, more rapids and more hills.
