Kids Course (8-14yrs)

  • Early Bird Entry: $40 per person
  • Standard Entry: $45 per person
  • Final Entry – $50 per person

The kids course will involve trail running and mountain biking legs (no kayaking) with simple navigation. There will be approximately 2-3km of running and 8-12km of biking.

Kids teams must be made up of a minimum of 2 kids up to a maximum of 5 kids. At least 1 team member should be aged 10 yrs+. If a parent wishes to race with their child on the Kids course in a team, they may do so and will need to register as a Participating Team Captain (just be aware the course is designed as a Kids introduction to adventure racing so it wont prove to be a challenge for the adult).

Parents should create a team registering themselves as a Non-Participating Team Captain first, then register each subsequent kid as a team member in that team, with one kid nominated as the team captain.

Included in your entry fee

  • Race maps for your team
  • Prizes & Giveaways
  • A professionally organised, safe and enjoyable adventure race
  • Kayaks, paddles and personal flotation devices (PFDs)
  • Professional timing system
  • Qualified first aiders

Postponement due to COVID-19

If a leg of the Maximum Adventure Race series is not able to proceed on the published date in 2021 due to ongoing restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, that leg of the series will be postponed to 2021/2022. Entrants should take this into consideration when entering.

If the event is postponed all existing entrants will have their entry automatically transferred to the new event date. Our normal refund policy (refunds available up to two weeks out from the new event date minus the nominated $30 admin fee) will apply, alternatively entrants can transfer 100% of the value of their entry to another Maximum Adventure event of their choosing.

Wet Weather Cancellation

In the case of bad weather, we will notify you as early as possible in the event there is a likelihood that National Parks or Race organisers determine that the event is unsafe to proceed. We will announce it on the event website and email all registered participants once a decision has been made. Updates will also be posted on our Facebook page.
