Race Wrap Up

Sep 18, 2023

What a weekend it was at the Blue Mountains Max Adventure Race! We hope you’re still riding high on the sense of accomplishment from this unforgettable event. We want to congratulate every participant for taking on the challenge.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather! The sun was shining bright, and the Blue Mountains put on a spectacular show.
The buzz of excitement filled the air at Euroka Clearing as teams descended on the event centre early Saturday morning and racked their bikes before collecting their race bags from registration.

The course was tricky this year with a 4 or 5 checkpoint rogaine to start before the real adventure began. Successfully collecting all the checkpoints required teams to carefully navigate their way through the warren of trails in Glenbrook National Park.

Some checkpoints required a cold plunge swim, others needed quick thinking/ braking halfway down the fast single track mountain bike section. While mean headwinds later in the day made the kayak checkpoints a real arm-pumping test!

We love hearing the trail stories at the end of the day. Trail tale of the day goes to a classic course team, who, more accustomed to wearing triathlon timing anklets, fastened their timing chip to their ankle. This unconventional approach required some remarkable displays of flexibility as they reached for various check points, especially those hanging higher in trees or conveniently (for everyone else) placed at eye level on the registration tent! We’ve never seen that before!

The day was captured by the team at Outer Image Collective, all images are now live on their site. You can access your collection of images by race number.
