Super fit athletes, both physically and mentally, from around the country will this weekend descend on Canberra for the Wildside Adventure Race (WildsideAR) 2017.
Twenty teams comprising four people each take part in this five-day expedition which promises to be packed with adventure in Canberra’s alpine terrain.
There are several teams competing from the ACT including the Mont Adventure Racing team, as well as an all-female team from Noosa, Mountain Designs Wild Women. Other teams include adventure racers from both city and regional areas in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
These competitors will tackle the course created by Fully Rad Adventures –ten legs covering a distance of 400 kilometres will include flat water paddling, white water paddling, abseiling, mountain biking, pack rafting and trekking. Participants have been told to prepare for trekking legs across farmland, trails and off-track with varied terrain and hills. Competitors will not find out the actual race route until race day, Monday 2nd October.
The only certainty is that they will battle the clock, fatigue, the elements and the terrain. For more information visit www.wildsideadventurerace.com.au or Facebook www.facebook.com/wildsideadventurerace
