    • ocean swimming
    • ocean paddling
    • trail running
    • mountain biking
  • Adventure Warrior as a combination of all standalone races - do it as an individual OR relay team!
  • Augusta Adventure Race as a continuous adventure race - similar to the 'MINI' from previous years, but with new distances and a new leg order (for individuals and relay teams)
  • Act-Belong-Commit Junior Survivor for the kids!

All events take place within the magical wilderness down south at Augusta, WA. Each of the courses have been specifically designed to take in the best of the best spectacular natural landscapes – from starting the trail running race at the iconic Cape Leeuwin lighthouse, to the exhilarating Augusta Adventure Race that links it all together.

Augusta is as far south-west as you can go; a quiet coastal town home to long sandy beaches, wild landscapes and an abundance of fresh air. It’s half an hour south from Margaret River, and 310kms south of Perth.

The landscape around Augusta is perfect for off-road adventures with its wild rocky coastline, undulating hinterland covered in dense wilderness, sheltered bays and secluded beaches.

There really is nothing like it. Come and see for yourself and get amongst the ultimate race atmosphere in the wild landscapes of south west Western Australia – a real-life adventure paradise.
