Ok, you’ve heard the sales pitch, watched the videos, are excited, scared and inspired all at once... Perfect, you’re ready to take your first step! Let us help you GET INVOLVED below.GET INVOLVED
You just love doing stuff with your mates and have convinced them to try a race.
Is this you? Great, we love that spirit. Sit down, have a sensible discussion (over a beverage) about your fitness and skills levels to determine any coaching or gear you may need. Then sign up to the Adventure 1 Series and enter your first race.
Doesn’t have to be more complicated than that. Many teams start this way and have amazing stories to tell. You probably won’t win and won’t care and you may get short-coursed. But you'll learn an incredible amount about yourself and the sport of adventure racing.
So many reasons to get social as a newbie to adventure racing.
Is this you? Follow the links to start your social training network and/or find a team for your adventure.
You’re a little OCD and want to read more about all things adventure racing before getting down and dirty.
Is this you? There’s a bit of that in us all… At Adventure 1 we’re building a portal to cover the latest information on Gear, Nutrition, Training and Logistics. Follow the link for all you need to know about adventure racing and getting race ready.
You like to push yourself with the help of experienced coaches.
….but you recognise you can’t prepare for an adventure race through regular PT channels at your local gym.
Is this you? Then see our directory of the best experienced coaches here in Australia for upskilling in trekking/trail running, kayaking, mountain biking and navigation for adventure racing.
Wanting to step across from multisport, orienteering, triathlon, SLSC, obstacle racing or have a background in the armed forces?
Is this you? Then you are already half way there. In fact, we encourage newbies to the sport to try out shorter multi-disciplined races and to join their local orienteering club for much needed experience in the disciplines of adventure racing. So step across and have ago... but please, we'd appreciate if you can leave behind your budgie smugglers, army issued weapons and those "shaved for speed" shiny legs, to get down and dirty in the bush with us.
