ADVENTURETHONReturns

In response to popular demand Adventurethon returns to north Queensland in 2021.

Gear up for a full on, three discipline, adventure-style race to test your stamina on the best waters and tracks around north Queensland. Not just an event for the elite athletes, Adventurethon also caters to the whole family from juniors to first time adults and those seeking a bit more of a challenge. Paddle, run and ride courses are designed to provide you with the best experiences of the location and to throw in a little fun and adventure along the way. Course planning is underway to ensure a great experience for all participants.

Adventurethon is a true test of stamina and could be quite daunting for some but don’t run away yet, we have options for all skill levels, even those that have never attempted an adventure course before. Make sensible choices and you’re guaranteed to have fun.

There will be plenty to keep the family from getting bored, even those that are not participating in the races, with plenty of food and drink available, BBQs for a picnic, and entertainment for the kids so why not make a day of it and bring the whole family to cheer the competitors on. This event will both challenge participants and expose them to the best locations around Townsville. We are able to design paddle courses to suit everyone and utilise some of the best mountain bike and trail run tracks in the region. Bike and run through a variety of different terrains to reach some spectacular views. Don’t run? But I bet you know someone that does! So, get them motivated and form a team of two or three, that way you won’t miss out on any of the fun.

Registrations: Registration is online only. Registrations close 9:00 pm Thursday 17th June or when sold out.

Race Pack Pickup: TBA

Presentations:  TBA at race HQ

All runners will receive their medallions at Presentations. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each category will be presented and all finishers will be invited to collect a finishers medallion.

General information:

Beginners and Juniors can choose to challenge themselves at the shorter and less technical Taste or Junior distance. More adventurous riders looking for a bigger challenge can ride the Enduro event, a shorter but no less technical version of the longest ride, the Ultra. For some participants this will be the first of three stages as they attempt to complete the Ultimate Adventurethon Demolish. Others will take a more leisurely approach and perhaps only tackle the mountain bike stage before heading off to spectate at the other events and get their kicks that way. Whatever approach you take we guarantee you will have a blast. You won’t get bored as you traverse different terrains and obstacles on this circuit course.

Welcome to the Adventurethon Taste and Junior events.

These are truly great events for the family, with many parents competing with their kids. The course for these events really is very beginner friendly, so there is no excuse for not involving the whole family; a great way to taste an adventure race, or just to try out a different sporting discipline. Never paddled? Then this is your chance, we haven’t lost a paddler yet! You can organise a suitable boat through local hire providers, or hit up one of your friends and borrow theirs. Any paddle craft (K1,K2, Surfskis , Canoe, Plastics, outriggers, SUP) with built in buoyancy (e.g. foam, sealed air compartment like a ski) is suitable for these events.

Format

There is a choice of distances to suit all comers, from the very beginners to elite athletes, so there is ample opportunity choose distances to suit your abilities and perhaps challenge yourself. Like a conventional triathlon, participants move directly from one discipline, through a transition zone and on to the next discipline until they have completed all three. First across the finish line to complete all three components (paddle, ride, run) wins the overall event, but being Adventurethon, we also recognise and reward age group winners as well as all those that complete the event. That’s right all finishers are awarded with a finishers medal.

If not competing why not head out and spectate so you get an appreciation of what is involved in adventure sports, but be careful, you might just get enthused and ‘wish you had been brave’ and had a go.
