Lake Macquarie Results & Photos

That’s a wrap on the first event in the 2021 Maximum Adventure Race Series, held at Lake Macquarie in mid-February.

Despite the testing conditions out on course that meant everyone was thoroughly soaked by the end of the event, there were plenty of smiles as teams crossed the finish line. A truly a fantastic effort by all the Classic and Novice teams, trail running, mountain biking and kayaking. We think everyone should consider themselves a winner for conquering the course considering the elements were against them, the category winners were as follows:

In the Premier Mixed category the winners on the day were Team Thule (Jennifer & Damien Enderby), crushing the course in under 3hrs. Following them home were the Karimbah Trail Runners (Mathew & Catherine Froome) and ‘Swich Family Robinson (Rupert & Emily Robinson).

The Slothicorns (Taylah Gentzen & Leila Duncan) were the first Female team home in a tightly contested podium rounded out by Dedo (Nichole Dean & Leah Doman) in second and A Great Day Out! (Claire Andrews & Nikki Brown) in third.

The fastest team on the  day and winners of the Male category was That’s a Paddin’ (Tim Doman & Dylan O’Connor) in an incredible time a tick over 2hrs. Belrose Bicycles (Chad & Ryan Armstrong) were second, beating home Team GB Rides Again (Will Andrews & Nick Riley).

Congratulations to all teams who took on their first adventure race at Lake Macquarie. You took on all the worst mother nature could throw at you and came out the other side!

A big thank you to Lake Macquarie City Council and Thule, both terrific events sponsors who help us put on the event you love!

A special shout out to our hard working volunteers who lent a hand despite the rain and helped make this event happen either out on course as a marshal or at the event centre and to CREST who provided the radio coverage across the course.
