Multisport is a type of racing that encompasses a variety of disciplines, with quite a few events now including kayaking as one of the legs.
Races can include kayaking in the Ocean (eg Anglesea Adventurethon), on a Lake (eg King Valley Challenge) or River (eg Murray Quad).
Events can typically be done as an Individual ie the same person completes all disciplines or teams ie for a race that includes a Run, Ride and Kayak a different person completes each leg.
There are endless combinations to the disciplines included in Multisport races (for example the ride leg could include either a road ride or moutainbike ride) as well as distances available – most events have short and long courses so there is a race to cater for beginners through to seasoned Pro’s.
