Kids Course

Max Adventure Race – Sunshine Coast

Sunday 17th July 2022

The Kids Course will involve trail running and mountain biking legs (no kayaking) with simple navigation. There will be approximately 1-2km of running and 2-4km of biking.

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.

Kids Course teams can consist of two children up to a maximum of five children per team. 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. Entry is free for parents/guardians accompanying young children on the Kids Course.

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

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 won’t prove to be a challenge for the adult).
