Overview: Naturaliste Short Course

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.

If you want a piece of the action at Eagle Bay without having to train like an ironman then the Naturaliste Short Course is perfect.

The Naturaliste Short Course has been designed as a stepping stone into the sport of adventure racing. It will suit new off-road converts, novices, social teams and triathletes wanting to do some cross training + younger participants still in high-school.

Despite the shorter distances, the Short Course does not lack in scenery or wow-factor experiences as you will mountain bike the flowing trails of Meelup, swim and kayak in the clear water of Geographe Bay and run along the region’s famous coastal path back to the finish line at the Brewery. It doesn’t get any better…!

Open to relay teams and solo athletes. Don’t miss your chance to be part of the action at the Eagle Bay Epic.

Join us for an achievable challenge

Dust off your bike, flick the spiders off your running shoes and pull out your (neighbour’s) kayak if you are going to tackle it solo, or round up a few friends and form a fun relay team and do one leg each for a weekend adventure in the beautiful Eagle Bay region that you’ll never forget!

We also have a popular Under 15 age category to encourage kids. Why not get a school team together or give it a go solo and you’ll be part of the action!

Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse

The course is named after the nearby Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse (pictured to the right) which stands high on the hill with the ocean all around on three sides. We have a fair idea that all Short Course finishers are going to feel as high as Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse after you’ve crossed that finish line!
