What is it?

Mountain Designs GeoQuest 48hr is Australia’s premier adventure race. It involves 48hrs of non-stop endurance racing in the disciplines of trekking, mountain biking, kayaking, roping and mystery disciplines. Mixed, Male or Female teams of four travel to this event from all parts of Australia and overseas to test their ultimate physical and mental limits. Together the team of four must navigate their way through an arduous 200+km course that is only revealed to them the evening before the race. The Mountain Designs GeoQuest is held annually on the Queens Birthday long weekend in June. The race is moved each year to a different location with exciting new challenges for the teams.

The Geo-Half adventure race is run at the same time as the Mountain Designs GeoQuest. It covers only half the distance but teams have the full 48hrs to complete it. The legs will be challenging, but with the additional time available to complete the half course, teams have a greater chance to reach the finish line. It is NOT a 24hr race; you have the full 48 hours to complete the course. Boats, paddles and PFDs are provided.

For further information do not hesitate to contact the Race Director Craig Bycroft
