Sunshine Coast Entries Open15th February 2021
Entries are now open for our second QLD adventure race of 2021, this time on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday 17th July.
The flat course on offer ensures some exciting racing, while the plethora of trails through the forest means there’s plenty of time that can be gained or lost by smart route choices.
Short, fast, fun and suitable for anyone and everyone with a real sense of adventure, this event is designed to offer the perfect introduction to the exhilarating sport of adventure racing. Teams will have to change between three core disciplines several times during the event including mountain biking, running and kayaking. The race could take between two to six hours to complete but trust us, you’ll never have time to be bored as you’ll constantly be challenged both physically and mentally!
The Classic course consist of 15-25km of mountain biking, 5-10km of trail running and 2-4km of kayaking. The Novice (beginner) course consist of 5-15km of mountain biking, 3-5km of trail running and 1-2km of kayaking. NB: There are multiple legs of each discipline, which add up to this total distance.
All participants will need to supply their own mountain bike (two per team) but they are also available for hire if you’re in need. Click here for more information. The kayaks, paddles and personal flotation devices (PFD’s) are also supplied and included in your entry fee.
Each event will require some basic navigation skills, although if you can read a street directory, you will be able to complete the course! All checkpoints can be reached by following tracks and paths, however occasionally it maybe faster to go cross-country.
If you’re new to the sport of adventure racing or you’re looking for an exciting challenge that lives up to your love of the outdoors and action packed adventure, then this Adventure Race series is a great way to experience what this exhilarating sport is all about.
