Welcome to the Geraldine Adventure Race, an exciting new event run as a fundraiser for Geraldine High School. We are offering two categories this year, 3 hours and 6 hours. You can race in a team of 2, 3 or 4 people.
The 3-hour event is designed for families and beginners to adventure racing. If you're keen to try an adventure race but unsure if you could do it, then this is the race for you. The navigation in this event will be easier than in the 6-hour event. To complete the 3-hour event, you will need to be able to jog/walk approx. 5km off-road, and mountain bike approx. 15km on 4WD trails. Competitive teams who are aiming to collect all the controls may well end up doing twice the stated distances.
The 6-hour event is designed to be an achievable event for all competitors with a reasonable level of fitness and some navigational competency. To complete the 6-hour event, you will need to be able to jog/walk approx. 10km off-road and mountain bike approx. 20km on 4WD trails. Competitive teams who are aiming to collect all the controls may end up doing more than the stated distances.
The times listed above are the maximum times a team should spend out on the course. The winning team will be the team to collect the most points within the 3 or 6-hour limit. Teams that finish after the time will be penalised a number of points per minute that they are late.
