CATEGORIES

Classic & Novice Course Categories

Adventure Racing is a team sport. Max Adventure Race events are for teams of two, and cannot be raced individually or as a relay. Team members must stay together throughout the event. The minimum age is 8 years on both courses when accompanied by an adult, and 14 years if two teenagers are racing together.

Classic and Novice courses have the following team categories:

  • Males
  • Females
  • Mixed

The Classic Course is suitable for teams with some navigation experience and includes approximately 15-25km of mountain biking, 5-10km of trail running and 2-4km of kayaking and will take most teams 3-6 hours to complete.

The Novice Course is designed for beginners and those new to the sport. The Novice Course consists of approximately 5-15km of mountain biking, 3-5km of trail running and 1-2km of kayaking. Novice teams generally finish in 2-4 hours.

Kids Course  (Lake Mac & Sunshine Coast only)

The Kids Course will involve trail running, mountain biking and kayaking legs (please note: there is no kayaking leg for the Sunshine Coast event) with simple navigation. There will be approximately 1-2km of running and 2-4km of biking and 500m of kayaking. Kids teams will finish in 30-90 minutes.

The Kids Course will be marked with arrows to help guide our young adventurers to the checkpoints. However keeping in the spirit of Adventure Racing some map reading is required. Parent/Guardians are encouraged to join their kids on the course to help with this.

The Kids Course has been created for young adventures between 5-12 years of age and teams can consist of either:

  • two children up to a maximum of five children per team, or
  • a parent can register with one child to make a team of two (just be aware the course is designed as a kids introduction to adventure racing so it won’t prove to be a challenge for the adult).

Teams with at least one child aged over 12 years can participate without a parent/guardian. Teams composed only of children aged under 12 years MUST have a parent/guardian accompany them for safety out on course. Entry is free for parents/guardians accompanying young children on the Kids Course where the team consists of 2 or more children.
