A Sunshine Coast Adventure For Everyone!

Jul 4, 2023

Prepare yourself for an action-packed day of fun set amongst the pine forests of Wild Horse Mountain in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Our event caters to teams of all skill levels, with a special focus on welcoming newbies and first-timers. We want everyone to experience the joy and excitement of adventure racing!

Choose from two fantastic course options: the Novice (beginner) and the Classic distance. We’ve also prepared a special Kids Course for the little ones, ensuring that the whole family can get involved.

Which course should I choose?
The Novice Course consists of approximately 5-15km of mountain biking, 3-5km of trail running and 1-2km of kayaking. Plenty of kid/ parent teams take on the novice course. The minimum age is 8 when accompanied by an adult and 14 years if two teenagers are racing together.

The Classic Course consists of approximately 15-25km of mountain biking, 5-10km of trail running and 2-4km of kayaking.

How does it work?
Working together in teams of two you must visit each of the checkpoints in turn by navigating the course by foot, mountain bike and kayak. The course is kept secret until race day, with maps revealed to you when you collect your race bag at registration. Checkpoints should be collected in order – missed checkpoints will add to your final race time, and bonus checkpoints (if collected) will give you a time deduction.

The event has been designed to provide a family-friendly atmosphere, creating an inclusive and enjoyable experience for all. Register now and get ready for an epic day of adventure racing fun!
