Despite very hot and extremely humid weather the Sunshine Coast event saw a fantastic turnout with 93 teams lining up at the start of the event.


All participants were in good spirits with the fastest team completing the course in just under 2h and 44m. The new Novice category again proved to be a hit with many families and 1st time adventure racers enjoying the day.


Racing was extremely tight in all categories with an exciting dead heat in the women’s classic category with the two Tri Adventure Girls teams being announced as the winner.


Thanks to a fantastic effort by Maximum Adventures & the event volunteers all teams were cleared out and equipment packed before massive rainstorms hit the area later in the afternoon.


The next round of the series will be held in May at the Royal National Park with more information found in our Events section.


Thanks to Marmot and Icebreaker for their support and a huge congratulations to all the participants and full results for both Saturday and Sunday can be found here. To see some more photos head to Element Photo & Video Productions.
