Eight Tasmanians will cycle, trail run and kayak over 1000 kilometres through some of our state’s most beautiful, most productive and most challenging landscapes.

Support of their journey will raise money for Rural Alive and Well (RAW) Tasmania and provide a focal point for industry conversations and programs that raise awareness of mental health and the importance of employee wellbeing, as highlighted in the industry Blueprint for Mental Health and Wellbeing launched by TMEC in 2017.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  1. Sponsor the event.
