More details: Swimrun Wild returns to the iconic and majestic arena that is Launceston’s Cataract Gorge on Friday 5th January, 2024. This is the 5th event at this great location, and is the first Swimrun Wild event of 2024.

This course is short and sharp, and will have competitors completing 5 laps, each consisting of a 150m swim across the first basin, followed by a 400m dash around the gorge to the start.

Making use of a unique course which is located close to the Launceston  city centre, this event is always memorable.

Grass, hills, water, dirt and rocks, come prepared and remember, you can bring a mate (teams of 2 ) , enter as an individual entry, and what ever you start with (equipment), you must carry throughout the event.
