Length/Duration: 2 days
Location: Myall Coast, NSW, Australia
Fully Rad Adventures is bringing the Wildside Adventure Race to the remote Myall Coast, Great Lakes, NSW Australia. The September Long Weekend will be a big with racers from across Australia converging on the region to get a heavy dose of adventure. Teams of 4 or 2 will have 10, 25 or 50 hours to navigate through spaces rarely visited and overcome challenges traversing demanding landscapes, moving from checkpoint to check-point by foot, mountain bike and kayak.
WildsideAR is the final of the Adventure1 Australian Adventure Racing Series with the top team in Australia being announced at the end of the race. The race will be a unique mix of experienced adventure racers and first timers all exploring their limits.
Starting on Saturday 29 September teams will use map, compass together with their own wits and skills to navigate their way over an unmarked route by mountain biking, paddling, trekking, orienteering, trail running, and of course a few surprises through the spectacular Myall Coast landscape. They will have until Monday 1 October to finish as they problem solve, route find and persevere over a wild course managing their resources.
This race will have everything - challenging treks, demanding mountain biking and scenic paddle legs. The course is rich in history, has a close connection with the ocean and is stunningly beautiful. The course will give teams a real adventure experience as well as get to know the region.
The Myall Coast region, a part of the Great Lakes on Australia’s east coast, is a landscape perfect for adventure with miles of forest tracks and trails, mountainous climbs, massive sand dunes, flowing rivers, wide lakes, endless beaches and a community that is connected to its environment. Teams can expect a warm welcome and a great experience.
