The Augusta Adventure Race is a non-stop adventure race incorperating swimming, paddling, trail running and mountain biking into the one event as a non-stop race through the wilderness.

The 2018 Augusta Adventure Race is basicaly the same as the former 'MINI' race and is designed to be achievable by adventure and multisport enthusiasts of all abilities. Competitors can tackle the whole race as a solo competitor or do it as part of a relay team and do one leg each.

The distances are shorter than Saturday's races but you’ll still swim in the crystal clear waters, run through the bushland trails and along sandy beaches, mountain bike on hinterland tracks through stunning bushland, and paddle on the sheltered waters of Hardy Inlet... providing a true adventure (race) for everyone.

(Those wanting a BIGGER challenge reminiscent of the previous years’ Adventure Race, check out the Adventure Warrior).

Open to individuals and relay teams of 2-4 members.

  • Open to individuals and relay teams.

So set yourself a challenge to be proud of and BE PART OF THE ADVENTURE at the Augusta Adventure Race in 2018.



The Augusta Adventure Race can be completed in a range of categories to get anyone and everyone to the start, and then over the finish line:

  • Individuals – do every leg as a non-stop race.
  • Relay Teams – with up to 4 people where you do one (or more) legs each. A great way to get involved without being a super hero. Build up a team of friends and work colleagues and join all the fun!


As the premier event of the weekend, the 2018 Augusta Adventre Race is sure to attract everyone from the finely tuned adventure machines, through to weekend wariors and beginners loving a competitive adventure.

So dust off your bike, flick the spiders off your running shoes and pull out your (neighbour’s) boat if you are going to tackle it solo, or round up a few friends and form a fun relay team and do one leg each for a weekend adventure you’ll never forget!

We also have a popular under 15 age category to encourage kids so why not get a school team together or give it a go solo and you’ll be part of the action big time!
