The crew at Dare You Adventures are putting on the first all-female adventure race that provides prize money to category winners in Australia. Teams of two will trek/run, mountain bike, kayak and navigate their way around a set course, in the beautiful bushland of the Sunshine Coast.

The event aims to encourage women of all ages and abilities to get out of the office/gym/house and get outdoors and be active. A basic level of fitness is required and a willingness to have some fun in the outdoors of the spectacular Sunshine Coast!

The Wild Women Adventure Race is a team event – consisting of 2 female competitors. There are 6 categories for teams to choose from, and the event combines basic orienteering with the adventure racing disciplines: Mountain Biking, Trail running/trekking and kayaking.  The course will consist of 20-30km of Mountain biking, 8-15km of trekking/trail running and 3-5km of kayaking (there will be multiple legs of each discipline).

Kayaks, Paddles and PFD’s are provided and the mandatory equipment list is available on the website.
If participants don’t have a mountain bike, they can hire one from a local company, ‘Have fun tours’.

The fastest teams are expected to finish in 3 hours, however teams have up to 6 hours to complete the course.

The event is set for Saturday July 7, 2012. Time: 9am – 3pm (registration from 7.30am).
The headquarters is a 30 minute drive from Maroochydore.  Interstate participants from Sydney and Melbourne can fly directly into the Sunshine Coast Airport (Maroochdyre) via jetstar and Virgin blue airlines.

The entry fee is $220 per team and entries close on July 1, 2012.
