Hanmer Events

Bivouac Outdoor Mt Isobel Challenge has been running in Hanmer Springs for over 22 years. The Duathlon is not for the faint hearted as the conditions can be intense.

You begin at the bottom of Jacks Pass Road on the domain and you will run to the summit of Mt Isobel (weather permitting) you will then come down to the transition where you will collect your mountain bike and bike approx 23km up over the back of Hanmer Springs, down Jollies Pass and back through the Hanmer Forest before coming down Jacks Pass and finishing in the Domain.

The race can be entered individually or in a two person team. This race can take place in extreme conditions so please be prepared with layered clothing, we can have snow, wind, rain, sun all in one day and the tracks can be tough. People return year after year to enjoy this fantastic duathlon. Enter early as we have limited spots due to DOC constraints.

Hanmer Springs is a great place for a weekend away so register early and book your accommodation. Soaking in the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools after your race is a must. At the finishing line we have coffee, Monteiths beer tent, music, Lions sausage sizzle and a playground for the kids.

All Hanmer Events are managed as community fundraisers, in 2017 our magnificent volunteers donated their funds to Rural Fire, SAR, toy library, the school, playcentre, tramping group, the mountain bike club and more.
