Sunshine Coast Results and Photos19th August 2020
That’s a wrap on the Sunshine Coast Adventure Race for 2020! After months of no events teams were chomping at the bit to race and the flat course on offer really let the teams go wild!
A strong field of Classic and Novice teams trail ran, mountain biked and kayaked through the Sunshine Coast hinterland, handling the maze of trails on the course with confidence. Even a late shower or two couldn’t put a dent in the smiles as teams streamed across the finish line.
Congratulations to all Classic team podium finishers. In the Mixed category ‘A Gaggle of Giess’ (Shaye & Michael Giess) were the first team home with ‘Tiger Art 2.0’ (Joao Dias & Leia Gall) and ‘The Ramblers’ (Sarah Dryburgh & Nic Droste) rounding out the podium. ‘Tri Adventure Aunties’ (Jan Leverton & Kim Beckinsale) showed off their skills to come home more than 80 minutes in front of the ‘Awesome Adventurers’ (Jenny Knight & Melanie Lightbody) and ‘Girl Torque’ (Maree Price & Lisa Boase), who had a hard fought battle for 2nd and 3rd, in the Female category. While for the Male teams ‘Remedial Paddlers’ (Ross Thursby & Clive Tucker) and ‘SAGA’ (Trent Raddatz & Lukas Cann) followed home the winning Male team, and quickest time overall on the day, ‘Rogue Adventure’ (Liam St Pierre & Thor Harrison) who completed the course in a staggering 2hrs, 22minutes & 40seconds once bonus checkpoints were factored in. Congratulations to all those teams, your prizes will be emailed to you.
These teams might have been at the pointy end of the Classic course but their were plenty of other teams (Classic & Novice) who got out there, many for the first time, gave it their all and enjoyed a real adventure in the forest so congratulations to those teams as well!
A special shout out goes to our hard working volunteers and crew who lent a hand and helped make this event happen. We couldn’t do it without you.
