PRIZES AND AWARDS

The “Premier Mixed” category team that completes the Adventure 1 Series with the most points, will be crowned the Australian Adventure Racing team champions and enter into the sport’s history pages.  In addition all Premier Mixed place getters and category winners will share in a prize money purse of $10,000, with the champion team gaining a free entry to represent Australia at the worlds biggest adventure race GODZone, in New Zealand. While money will never be at the heart of Adventure 1, we expect sizable cash prizes will be made available as media interest grows and spectators and sponsors are attracted to the series. 

The Adventure 1 Series will not just focus on the elite teams but also those teams who embody the spirit of the sport. You and your team will not only have an official Australian ranking for the first time, but as A1 Club members, you will be in the running for awards, recognition and the following prizes......

MARCO POLO AWARD

Mmm the emotions that come with getting lost…really lost.  For some, an excuse for a good laugh and a unique sightseeing experience, but for others it may cost a heartbreaking podium finish.  Emotions can run high and the serene sounds of birds and waterfalls are replaced with the less peaceful sounds of #$%@#%##.

So for our enjoyment learning experience, we will be voting on the worst most memorable checkpoint of the season…. And with that comes the honour of the Marco Polo Award.
