AAA Extreme

This is quickly becoming the benchmark endurance event in the Southern Hemisphere and will test even the toughest of competitors and those willing to take the challenge ‘into thin air’.

This event will be up there with the likes of Norseman and has been designed to really test an individual. It’s not just about distance, it’s about altitude, it’s about unpredictable weather, it’s about hills – big hills, competitors will be running to the highest peak in Australia and it will be in vain if they don’t get there before dusk when the National Park come in and literally lock you out.

Due to the nature of the course and safety requirements, entries will be capped, with everyone vying for the ultimate ‘AAA Extreme Finisher’ status.





swim 3km

The swim will be held at the picturesque Lake Jindabyne and see you do 3 laps of a course.
While it may be considered the tamer of the three legs, competitors shouldn't be complacent.
The challenge of altitude, weather and what's in store is enough to set the stage of a big event.


bike 113km

The ride starts at 900m altitude and the 113km bike leg will see you riding to the famous Dead Horse Gap, ‘The Gate’ into the Murray River Valley. From here you will head back towards Jindabyne VIA Bullocks Flat for a drink stop. After leaving Bullocks flat you will ride to Charlotte Pass Village, this ride has you climbing over 3200 vertical metres, and will be your T2 area.


run 22km

Now the real challenge begins - the ascent to Australia’s highest peak. Participants will be winding their way up from Charlotte Pass Village, to Charlotte Pass and to the start of the Summit Trail before beginning most gruelling stretch – a 9km climb to the peak of Mt Kosciuszko. Once at the peak, competitors can take a moment to soak it all in before they make the final 9km descent to the finish line at Charlotte Pass Village.
