The first Max Adventure Race for 2023 is nearly here, and we are pumped to bring you some heart pounding adventure racing action on the shores of Lake Macquarie! With over 150 teams already signed up we will be seeing a good turn-out for the race weekend with Novice (beginner course) and Classic courses and, new for this year, a Kids course for the younger adventurers.
There will be a strong presence of new teams taking to the trails, tracks and waterways and plenty of teams returning for more fun and adventure this year. Online entries will close NEXT WEDNESDAY 8th FEBRUARY, so don’t miss out! Entries will be available on the day, but we encourage teams to sign up online to avoid the race day morning rush.
We think the Max Adventure Races are a pretty awesome day out on the trails – but don’t just take our word for it. Check out what one of your fellow participants has to say about the event.
“Adventure racing is officially on the top of my “fun” list. It aligns with everything I love. I’ve always loved:
- Being active
- Team work
- Outdoor adventures
- Pushing myself out of my comfort zone (type 2 fun)
- Encouraging others with whatever their goals are – big or small. YOU CAN DO IT!
To me this is exactly what adventure racing is about… It’s about being active and enjoying the outdoors but with a twist. Adventure racing pushes you that little bit out of your comfort zone which makes you realise you can do difficult things. You have a massive sense of accomplishment at the end (dopamine hit). All within the setting of a friendly, encouraging, team competition environment. Are you starting to see why I like adventure races?
You don’t need to be competitive, but you can be if you want. You could be like the 2019 version of me and just complete it and have a great day out with friends OR you could be like the 2022 version of me and race at the front.
PS. Families with kids can enter too. DO IT!”
So grab yourself a teammate, your bike (or hire one) and a pair of shoes and we will see you there Saturday 11th February 2023!
