Already recognised as the World’s (yes, people, the world’s) largest adventure race, this year the Augusta Adventure Festival is only going to get bigger with the addition of the Anaconda Mini, a new, shorter event that will introduce a league of converts to the sport of adventure racing with shorter, more accessible courses that give an achievable taste of what Adventure racing is all about.With the Mini joining the regular full course Adventure Race and the Junior Survivor, it promises to be an electric race atmosphere like no other. The three events all take place in the wilderness and untouched landscapes in and around Augusta in the south west of Western Australia. There’s rocky headlands, tranquil ocean reefs alive with (friendly) fish; paddle exploring Hardy Inlet and out into the (protected parts) of the Southern Ocean; and the mountain bike sections sweeping through inland forests along single tracks that could be certified as a fun park.
Web registration is available.
