On Saturday 3rd November and Sunday 4th November, the Anaconda Adventure Race National Series will conduct its second event of the current season. The Anaconda Adventure Race is known as the largest adventure race in the world, and the Augusta leg is recognised as the largest in the Anaconda Adventure Race National Series.
The Augusta leg has been made even bigger with the inclusion of the Junior Survivor and Anaconda Mini races. The events will all take place in the wilderness area and landscapes in and around Augusta, located in the south west of WA.
The Anaconda Adventure Race National Series website cites “rocky headlands, tranquil ocean reefs alive with friendly fish, paddles exploring Hardy Inlet and out into the protected parts of the Southern Ocean,” along with “mountain bike sections sweeping through inland forests.” Contestants and spectators alike have often been quoted as saying that there is “nothing like the Anaconda Adventure Race.”
The weekend will consist of three events. The main event is the Anaconda Adventure Race, which will be contested over a 62.9 km course. Relay teams or individuals will complete “legs” of trail running, mountain biking, kayaking, and ocean swimming.
The Anaconda Mini is called a “half distance” event, but actually comes in a little less at 27 km, made for intermediate racers and beginners. The race will consist of trail running, mountain biking, kayaking, and inlet swimming. This event is also open to individuals or relay teams.
The Anaconda Junior Survivor is for children from 5 to 13 years of age, and is considerably shorter. The exact distance isn’t given, but most kids are expected to be able to finish within 45 minutes, with a low of 25 minutes and a high of 60 minutes. The course is designed with fun water activities and obstacles, to give kids the fun and adventure they need.
The organizers of the race, Rapid Ascent Adventure Event Management, expect a large turnout, as has been the case in previous years. The main race had a total of 654 entries in 2011, with more teams than individuals.
Scott Eaton, Owner of Imagepak Marketing, is looking forward to another great event in Augusta: “The Anaconda Adventure Race is always one of the best weekends in Australia. There is a mixture of serious racers, teams, and people who are simply testing their limits and trying to accomplish something great. Like many competitions, there are no losers at the Anaconda: only winners.”
Eaton wants racers to know that it isn’t too late to order promotional items and uniforms for the event: “There isn’t a lot of time left, but individuals or teams that need personalised shirts and singlets can still get them customised in time for the weekend. One of the great things about races like this is the camaraderie. If your team has a personalised uniform, it not only adds to the camaraderie now, but also provides a great souvenir of the race, and allows people to remember what a great time they had every time they look at the uniform.”
Eaton concludes: “If you participate in a race like this, you have turned yourself into an elite athlete. Even if you barely finish, you are better than 99% of the population...Call us today and we will have them ready for you by race time.”
