“We are passionate about getting people outside and exploring places and adventure racing is a great way to do that” Race Director, Richard Old, “For Wildside Myall Coast we have taken all that we love about the sport and created a course that offers real adventure as well as promotes the unique mix of remote long beaches, coastal forest and local history – it’s going to be special”
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. We are designing a race that will give teams a real adventure experience as well as get to know the area.”
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.
