Max Adventure Race Series
Saturday, 16th September 2023
Blue Mountains, NSW

The final event in the 2023 Max Adventure Race Series kicks off in just over a week and presents the perfect opportunity to sink your teeth into this fun team-based race.

Featuring a purpose built single track section for the mountain bike legs, paddling on the Nepean River, as well as rock hopping and wading along the narrow creek line of Glenbrook Gorge (always a favourite amongst the teams), this is one event that will not disappoint!

We’ve got beginners covered with a Novice course option, or those keen to go longer (and more technical) can choose the Classic course option.

The event location at Glenbrook in the lower Blue Mountains is easily accessible from Sydney, no need to stress about the gear either; kayaks are provided by us and there’s the option to hire a mountain bike if you’re in need.

With entries closing soon on Wednesday 13th September now is the time to enter.

All you need is a team mate, a pair of shoes and a sense of adventure.

Experience adventure racing at its finest!

Coastal Classic Race Wrap Up

Saturday 3rd September, 2023
Royal National Park, NSW

Wow what a race day! Congratulations to every single runner who took on Coastal Classic 2023! This was the 14th year of the Coastal Classic, what an incredible journey from start to finish.

Mother Nature was on our side this year, blessing us with a glorious, sunny day setting the scene for an unforgettable coastal trail run. It was a striking departure from last year’s event, but that’s trail running for you – endlessly unpredictable and we love it!

Congratulations to all our category champs! In the men’s division, Mark Langley clocked in at a seriously fast 02:11:40 to secure the top spot, followed closely by Michael Lough at 02:14:34 in second place, and Kris McCullough rounding out the podium at 02:15:25 On the women’s front, Sara Levett crushed it with a time of 02:33:10 to claim #1, Alice Raban secured second place with a time of 02:35:11, and Jessica Cannings rounded off the female podium at 02:40:19. Check out the full results online HERE.

Congrats also to the legends of the Coastal Classic – the ones who’ve completed the race for 10+ years! We call ’em the “Coastal Classic Conquerors” because, well, they’ve pretty much tamed the beast. So, here’s to the folks who’ve been making our event a part of their lives for 10+ years – you’re all rockstars in our book!

As we bid adieu to this year’s Coastal Classic, we can’t help but look forward to the future. Mark your calendars for the next instalment of the Coastal Classic, set to take place Sat 7th Sep 2024. We can’t wait to see you all again for another epic coastal adventure.
