Course Description & Maps

OFFICIAL EVENT PROGRAM: The event program is essential reading for all event attendees and covers details like event schedule, course maps, parking details and more. Read it HERE.

A spectacular course in a spectacular landscape… Starting at the Eagle Bay Brewery competitors will reveal all of Meelup’s treasures as you ride, swim paddle and run through a postcard of adventure.

Not for the faint hearted, the Leeuwin Long Course covers 51km of off-road terrain that will keep you on your toes from start to finish. Twisting single track, lung busting hills and rock-hop-running… you’ll be tested from start to finish.

‘Fortune favours the brave’ so step up to the premier challenge and the rewards of an epic adventure in a beautiful setting are all yours (as well as beer at the finish).

Course Description

A more detailed description of each leg of the course and transition areas will be included in the Event Program to be circulated 2 weeks before the race.

23km Mountain Bike

Kicking the race off with a Le Mons start, riders power along a challenging track that has it all… fast rolling 4WD tracks, climbs, descents and plenty of single track as you race to the Dunsborough transition area.

2km Ocean Swim

Crystal-clear water, smooth surfaces and spectator friendly… this horse-shoe shaped swim is so picturesque you will want to do it again tomorrow.

13.5km Ocean Kayak

Traversing the length of Meelup Regional Park to Eagle Bay and return, paddlers explore one of WA’s most scenic coastlines and quiet coves. Simply magic.

12.5km Trail Run

This is quite simply the best run course we’ve ever designed… trail, rocks, hills and views… this is run through paradise with a brewery at the end.

300m Team Run

Bring it home together with a gallop across the paddocks to finish in front of the bar. Life doesn’t get any better.

This was one of the best races I’ve competed in – such a challenge and an insane amount of fun. The whole event had a great vibe and I’ve definitely got my sights on the long course next year!

Transition Areas

This consolidated course has just one (mega) transition area on Vincent Street in Dunsborough. Teams can watch the race unfold (and wait for their turn!) with music, food and an awesome atmosphere for all.

This transition area is described in the event program.

Course marking

  • The course for the MTB and Run legs (both for the Short and Long Courses) will be marked with pink surveyor’s tape and red arrows. Red and white barrier tape will be used to block off any tracks you should not take.
  • You can still get lost if you don’t pay attention. Keep your eye out for trail markers at all times.
