Murray Quad supporting HeartKids - Saturday 30th November

 

Looking for a weekend away to explore the mighty Murray River then the 2019 Murray Quad is for you.

It all begins with a 25km/12km paddle down the Murray River from Cobram to Tocumwal on Saturday 30th of November,

followed by an evening 40km indoor spin session at Balance Spin Studio Mulwala and ends with either a half/quarter marathon,

a 6.5km run on the world class designed Black Bull Golf Course in Yarrawonga on Sunday.

Then everyone can join in the fun HeartKids/Parents run walk along the famous Lake Mulwala foreshore.

Each event can be done individually or any combination.
