GC Adventure Race

Gold Coast Adventure Race is a recreation of the old Anaconda race last held out of Currumbin back in 2011

The Gold Coast Adventure Race is a challenging off-road event that will see you racing down golden beaches, along tropical waterways and through lush hinterland wilderness as part of an adventure quest you’ll never forget. If you love an adventure, like getting out ‘n about or achieving a goal with some team mates then this is the event for you.

Starting on the golden sands of Palm Beach at Currumbin Alley, competitors will swim in the beautiful Pacific Ocean; paddle along the coast and up a picturesque waterway. They will then run through creeks, over hills and down rough and tumble tracks in the rainforest before mountain biking along rolling single track on the NSW / QLD border back to the finish line on the coast. Do it as a team or do it as an individual but either way you’ll have an unforgettable adventure while achieving an overwhelming sense of accomplishment and fun.

Course 1: Starts at Currumbin Ally and consists of swimming, ocean and river paddling, running and mountain biking
