On 11-12 November, the Victorian Alps once again will host the Alpine Quest, a spectacular and challenging expedition adventure race.

In 2022 the organisers set the bar high and announced the Transalpine 48hr edition.

Teams of four will traverse the Great Dividing Range through its Alpine section.

The endurance athletes will be packrafting, trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and abseiling around the Victoria’s highest peaks and plateaus for up to 48 hours non-stop.

The event is featuring two courses:

Expedition - a classic non-stop adventure race with a 48hr cut off;

Explore - a 2-day staged race with overnight stop.

The event is designed for teams of four with a Premier Mixed category, as well as Female and Male categories.

“We love our Alps, they never disappoint! Scenic and tough terrain with always changing conditions.

The Transalpine course will be really special. We are planning a full-on adventure for all teams. The Explore course will be still challenging, but a little bit more achievable and sensible for those who are not keen on expedition but still want to be a part of epic Alpine adventures.

We cannot wait to see all best teams at the start, and hopefully, finish line of Alpine Quest. It will be an experience that is 100% worthy of all the resources, adventure racing require.” - Maria Plyashechko, Communication Director at

The race is supported by East Gippsland Shire Council and the race HQ is set high on the Dividing Range - Omeo, one of the best kept secret spots in Australia and affectionately known as the ‘City of the Alps’.

Registration is open on the event website and teams can take advantage of early bird price till the 1st of March.  Due to the race’s complex logistics, 25 Expedition and 15 Explore slots are available.
