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 downstream paddle and then returns upstream. Distances are 8 or 12kms, depending on whether you have selected the “Nice” or the “Nasty” course. After that there is a tree covered mountain bike leg of either 15 or 23 km, where the Duathlon entries will join you, followed by a cross-country run of 10 or 13km. Participants can enter as a team, a pair or take on the course solo as an ironman or woman. There is also a DUATHLON category. 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.
