Albany Advertiser joins the Adventure
We are excited to announce Albany Advertiser has joined the adventure, becoming a sponsor of the Beginners event – Albany Advertiser Taste of Adventurethon. This is a partnership we are extremely excited about, especially given how much the Albany Advertiser have really gotten behind the adventure boom in Albany lately.
With several successful events in Albany already this year we know adventure is alive and well and we couldn’t be happier. We saw an Adventurethon in January then the Southern MTB festival and of course the recent Albany trail run at Quaranup. We know the locals are getting excited to show what they can do this year.
This January 8th we really want to see locals to jump into the great Albany Advertiser Taste of Adventurethon course challenging mates, family and work colleagues to do the 1hour (approx.) course either solo or as a tag team. The beginner friendly course includes a 1km paddle, 12km mountain bike and 4km trail run and can be completed individually or as a team.
Earlier this year, at Adventurethon Albany team ‘The Injectors’, including members Tiff Greenwell, Lex Porebski and Martin Creighton represented the Albany Hospital and challenged their workmates to make their way through the Adventurethon course, which takes in the forts and much of the amazing Albany.
The friendly rivalry between Team Injectors and Team Fully Dilated was most comical, with banter being thrown about in transitions, and photo bombing of team photos etc. The day ended with Team Injectors finishing first, and plans were begun then to ensure another great performance in 2017.
Lex says, “I loved it last year, the whole family atmosphere without the hard-core training needed for other fitness sports… I’m looking forward to resurrecting my team and participating again and hope all the regulars and new first timers give it a go.”
If we want Albany to be known as an adventure hub it starts with the attitude and adventure is all about starting to push comfort zones and trying slightly harder stuff as we go.
There are longer options for those people who are looking for a bigger challenge, as well as a sprint option on the Sunday for the seasoned athlete, triathlete and multisporter.
