" The Defiance course offers one of the most picturesque backdrops and scenic vistas in North Queensland. Take a moment on Day 1 to take it all in, as when you are racing, you might miss the beauty of this place. "

Sam Stedman – Course Director


The weekend kicks off with Day 1 on Friday, 26th August at South Mission Beach. Once everyone has picked up their race bags, the Athlete briefing will be held at the Event HQ (times TBC). The Athlete briefing is compulsory for all participants and includes important information for the next two days of racing.

The Prologue is a fast and intense race, that will determine the teams starting positions for Day 2. It will involve ocean kayaking and beach running, the exact course will be kept secret until the briefing. The Prologue also gives teams the opportunity to make themselves familiar with the kayaks they will be paddling on Day 3 as well as getting a feel for running on the pristine beaches of Mission Beach.
