The second Paddy Pallin Adventure Race of the 2009-10 Series – and the first in the ACT – is planned for Saturday 28 November 2009. By then the weather will surely have warmed up to allow for a Spring experience, especially when paddling!
The exact location of the headquarters will be withheld until closer to the event to keep an element of surprise, but any location in the close vicinity of the Capital offers amazing possibilities. The sections on foot are interesting with open bush and rolling terrain, and need we mention the World-Class mountain biking tracks that criss-cross the area?
Will the Sydneysiders be brave enough to come and challenge the high-quality local adventure racers that Canberra harbours? At only 3 hours’ drive from Sydney it would offer a great change of scenery from the coast and some serious competition to boot!
Companies are encouraged to participate in a specific category to challenge competitors as well as colleagues and see who can come out on top and claim the Corporate Cup Challenge.
The School Challenge allows kids to go head to head with each other and represent their school out of the academic world! For new comers to the sport of adventure racing, Paddy Pallin is organising a Gear & Info Night at their Lonsdale Street store in Braddon on 4 November with tips, gear specials and an opportunity to ask questions to the organisers and equipment reps. They can decide between entering the Novice Course – which is half the distance of the Classic Course – or dive in the deep end right away and go for the Classic Course straight away!
Entries for this event are open online. Early bird entries close on 13 November and a late fee applies for entries until 24 November 2009.
