Despite some rain leading into the race day perfect weather greeted the 170 plus teams at the Sunshine Coast leg of the Paddy Pallin Adventure Series.

All participants were in good spirits with the fastest team completing the course in between 2 hours and 30min and 3 hours. The Novice category again proved to be a hit with many families and 1st time adventure racers enjoying the day.

The next round of the series will be held in May at the Royal National Park with more information found in our Events section.
