Event Wrap up – Kathmandu Andventure Race, Sunshine Coast24th March 2014
There were smiles a plenty when nearly 300 competitors lined up for the start of the annual Kathmandu Adventure Race on the Sunshine Coast.
For the first year in a long time teams were treated to a dry course. This made for some fast and furious racing as teams tackled the six legs comprising multiple legs of trial running, mountain biking and kayaking. Of particular note was one of the kayaking checkpoints that became submerged during the event when the log it was tied to decided to flip over. This did not stop the teams diving in after it. Maybe we can call that the mystery leg?
With the drier conditions came a faster course with Teamexplore (Paul Elby & Gary Palmer) blitzing the course in 2 hrs 51 min. Mountain Designs (Kim Beckinsale and Gary Sutherland) were second across the line in 2 hrs 57 min and Tri Adventure Girls (Jan Leverton and Kelsey Harvey) rounding out the top three in 3hr 28min.
