A stunning early summers day welcomed over 350 adventure racers to Sydney’s Royal National Park on Saturday. Keen racers of all ages were soon pouring over the map and plotting their course. Before long the start gun sounded and they were off and racing!!!

Teams were greeted with an exciting course, including exhilarating flowing single track mountain biking and a fast flatwater paddle on the upper reaches of the Port Hacking river. The Classic Course teams explored some secluded waterholes, perhaps even taking the opportunity for a quick swim as the sun shone. The navigation adds to the challenge of adventure racing, but teams handled this well, missing very few checkpoints, even if some controls took a bit of time and concentration to find.

Congratulations to all the teams that completed the event, it was a slightly longer course than previous but that didn’t prevent the teams smashing out some incredible times. A special shout out to our younger team members who continue to impress with their enthusiasm and resolve to complete the course.

Fastest team in the Classic Course was Belrose Bicycles (Chad and Ryan Armstrong) completing a rare sweep of 1st place at all the NSW legs of the Max Adventure Race series in 2022, congrats guys! The second Male team home was Dingos (Ryan Hardy & Timothy Hubbell) while I Thought This Was a Park Run (Andrew McLachlan & Bryce Hudson) were third.

In the Mixed category the experienced duo Alpine Quest (Maria Plyashechko & Sergey Kurov) were the winners (and 2nd overall), beating home TMC Costal Mountain Hybrid Fusion (Kirsty Lowe & Michael Vanos) and Canvanauts (Tessa Carnieie & Etienne Gautier).

Among the Female teams the mother and daughter team of Mad Mielke’s (Jody & Connor Mielke) were the first home in front of team Barnie (Marnie Prowse, Beth Bryce) in 2nd and Worst Pace Scenario (Jacqui Shakespeare, Ineke Jones) in 3rd.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped at the event, and to our event sponsors The Edge Adventure Store and Wilde Beer for your support.

We look forward to seeing a large number of teams back for the first Max Adventure Race in 2023 at Lake Macquarie in February.

Results and Photos from the day from the team at Outer Image are now available!
