The Moreton Mongrel is a MASSIVE fundraising event for Couee Community. The Couee Community exists to improve the lives of persons and communities in need or experiencing disability or disadvantage by providing funds to access service programs, receive goods or other benefit that alleviates any disadvantage or hardship.

The Mongrel Event itself will test athletes through a series of rigorous sections.

The Moreton Mongrel is an extreme Athletic event comprising of 3 legs, run in the following order and without a break:

  1. 3km Swim
  2. 20 km Paddle
  3. 20 km Run

The event will have a strict time limit of 11 hours to complete. The race commences at 7am with the first event, the swim leg. The mandatory swim cut off for the 3km swim is 10am, the paddle cut off time is 2pm and all finishers must complete their 20km run by 6pm.
