Fat Bikes on a beach

The Lake Argyle Swim, national Fat Bike Championships, and Lake Argyle Adventure Race will share in $25,000 from the Country Sport Enrichment Scheme (CSES).

As well as those three events, the CSES will also contribute $9500 to help stage the Garnduwa Making Her Mark — Women in Sport Forum which aims to bring together women in the Kimberley to boost their participation in sport and recreation, ultimately leading to healthier individuals, families and communities.

The event will be held in March and feature Olympic medallist and former senator Nova Peris, and consist of a training day with practical and classroom sessions.

The three sporting events will each highlight part of the Kimberley's stunning outdoor environments.

The Lake Argyle Swim will be held on May 2, 2020 and is an open water swim event over distances of 10 kilometres or 20 kilometres, for solo swimmers or teams of two or four.

The national Fat Bike Championships will be held on May 15, 2020 at Cable Beach on a course including natural and improvised beach obstacles.

The Lake Argyle Adventure Race will be held over several days starting in late August. The multi-sport event will involve a swim leg, trail run, mountain bike section and paddle in and around Lake Argyle and the Carr Boyd Range.
