New stage race for Australia

The event will cover eight stages in five days, moving from town to town each day. The tracks will include new and existing trails and fireroad in the Kosciuszko National Park and surrounding areas. The area is famous for its mountains, rivers, lakes and scenery.

Stages in the Snowy Mountain region will range from short 8km time trails to longer 60km marathon legs. Stages and host towns will be announced six months before the event. More details will be available at after the formal launch on May 30.
