Course

The overall objective of the Maximum Adventure Race Series is for you and your teammate to have fun, and complete the designated course (together, no relays) in the minimum amount of time possible, by visiting each of the checkpoints in turn by foot, bike or kayak.

The course itself is kept secret until the day of the race, only to be revealed at registration, when you will be issued with your maps and race instructions.

Sometimes the maps will be pre-marked, other times you will need to copy the checkpoints off a master map. The race instructions will tell you in what order to collect the checkpoints and what equipment you can use.

Either way it’s worth turning up early to give your team plenty of time for planning.

Aid Stations:

There are no aid stations on course therefore you will need to ensure you carry your own nutrition and hydration as well as all other equipment requirements. You can find out more here.

Transition Areas:

These are staff/volunteer marshalled areas on course where participants will transition from one leg to another eg: bike leg to kayak leg. You must take everything with you on all legs, therefore no boxes/bags of belongings or kit supplies are to be left at these transition areas.

Event Program:

All event information including location specifics, transportation, facilities, food/beverage options, race rules & conditions etc will be emailed to all participants approximately 1-2 weeks before the event. This information will also be posted on our website as a ‘Latest News’ article.
