Espresso 2007

Posted on 10 Jul 2007 | 0 comments

Marcus and Muz organise the first local adventure race in WA – awesome! They manage to get a full race with 20 teams getting to the start line. And although it takes most teams a bit longer to get back to the finish line than 24hrs we all agree it was great fun and we’ll be back for more!

  • leg 1 – trek 7km
  • leg 2 – mountain bike 25km
  • leg 3 – kayak 12km
  • leg 4 – time based rogaine, minimum distance 9km
  • leg 5 – mountain bike 42km
  • leg 6 – trek 13km
  • leg 7 – mountain bike 27km
  • leg 8 – kayak 17km
  • leg 9 – trek 8km

Jon’s team finishes 5th and Jude’s team finishes 6th after more than 24hrs continuous racing. Only 7 teams from the 20 make it to the finishing line after completing the entire course.
