Yamba in the Clarence Valley region of NSW to host Mountain Designs GeoQuest 2019

Yamba will be the start and finish location for the 2019 edition of Mountain Designs GeoQuest.

Famous for prawns and surfing, Yamba is a popular destination for a beach holiday and recreational fishing. Surfers chase the perfect wave at the world-famous Angourie Point, one of Australia’s iconic National Suring Reserves. A wonderful multi-day hike in the Yuraygir National Park begins here, too.

Yamba is located 6.5 hours drive north of Sydney. The closest major centre is Grafton.

Over 500 competitors, support crew, family and friends from around the country will attend the Mountain Designs GeoQuest 48hr Adventure Race over the 7-10th June 2019.

There are limited team entries in 2019 so teams should take advantage of the traditional early bird two week opening special closing 28 Feb 2019, with final entries closing on 26 May 19.

Mountain Designs GeoQuest involves 48+hrs of non-stop endurance racing in the major disciplines of trekking, mountain biking and kayaking. Mixed, Male or Female teams 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.

The event receives enormous support from its major sponsor Mountain Designs, and this year from the Clarence Valley Council.
