Finding Mojo at Adventurethon
We chatted with Jo from Mojo Adventure about life, the universe and everything just because we could. With a cheeky grin, Jo seems to jump at everything life throws at her. The more adventure, the more fun it is!
First up – what do you do for fun Jo? “Haha, I like to go on adventures! And macramé…
Well not really macramé but I sing and paint and do normal things too.”
MOJO adventure was created in the gorgeous Toowoomba region from a desire to get people outside and active and develop a love for adventure. If anything, Mojo Adventure is all about fun and laughs. You can usually find them with a glass of red in one hand and a compass or a mountain bike in the other
Mojo Adventure run events – The MOJO Raid, do formal training for adventures and generally have fun outside. The MOJO Raid is a 6 and 12 hour adventure race/rogaine that is designed to showcase the area they hold it in and to challenge both newbies and oldbies in the sport – but at its core our goal is to have fun. which is why they have shark checkpoints. (This sounds fun…anyone know what a shark checkpoint is?)
Jo and some of her MOJO crew will be joining us at Adventurethon Demolish, Clarence Valley this November 25 & 26, and we are thrilled to have them there.
Jo says, “I’m coming down with my MOJO co-conspirator – E and my other riding buddy Dave. Both the boys are awesome riders and I am super jealous of their skills. They also put up with my incessant jabbering and help to bring some details to the grand plans I create in my brain. They also fix my bike for me too, which is awesome when you aren’t a details person!”
We heard a whisper about a secret “cough medicine”. Will it be coming with the crew this time? Jo replies, “Cough medicine…yes we have been known to carry such things with us….butterscotch or apple flavour usually…lol”
How is the training going leading in to the event?
“I have been training the hardest for the bike, but no doubt the paddle will be my favourite if my ski makes it through the whitewater without bucking me off! I personally have been known to have “lost my way” during course setting…Dave is also skilled at making short journeys to the Mountain Bike Park more scenic than is required. I admit to not being very adept at following taped routes. I tend to get distracted too easily by sparkly things…. Firemen? Where…?”
But mostly looking forward to the get the medal stage.. I love medals!
Whatever happens we know Jo and the crew will have an absolute blast!
If you would like to join us there is still time – regos will be closing soon, but in the meantime, jump onto the website at https://adventurethon.com.au/events/clarence-valley/
