The Great Adventure Challenge – Royal National Park, New South Wales

Volunteered for an adventure race called “The Great Adventure Challenge“. It was held in the Royal National Park and was a corporate focused event aimed at raising funds for an organization called Starlight. This was the first adventure race I have seen first-hand and witnessing the competition has gotten me interested in pursuing adventure racing in between triathlon. Next week I am currently scheduled to volunteer for a marathon in Sydney, but am thinking about going up to volunteer with the same race crew at a 24 hour adventure race instead. The Royal National Park has a variety of terrain, is relatively tourist free, and there is a rail line that goes directly to the park from the city.

Getting on rail to go to the park


One of the stages involved building a raft out of 3 tubes, 3 planks and a pole, and a variety of lengths of rope. The participants had to carry the supplies down from the top of a ridge to the beach.
