Dealing With a DNF

This has been a hard race report to write, for the obvious reason that the net result of our foray into Alpine Quest in 2019 was a DNF. The team entered the race with high hopes for a good start to the Adventure 1 series and instead we are left ruing a missed opportunity. Personally, […]

Looking Back at 2018

It’s that time again to reflect back on the adventure racing year that was. 2018 was a big year for the team. After going back and forward for a number of years with Chris and Michelle Delaney from Port Macquarie to do a race together, we finally hatched a plan to tackle the Adventure 1 […]

The Return of Eco Challenge

Perhaps the biggest story to come out of Adventure Racing in 2018 is the return of Eco Challenge. Undoubtedly the race that put AR on the sporting map, Eco Challenge ran for a total of 10 editions from 1995 to 2002 through locations such as Patagonia, Borneo, Fiji, Morocco and the New Zealand Alps.  With […]

Take a Run on the Wildside

As a self-confessed AR tragic, it’s amazing that it has taken me five editions of Wildside to finally make it down to this event.  The Wildside format has jumped from anywhere between a 24 hour race to an expedition race.  This year’s race finally settled on a 50 hour version and doubled as the final […]

Rogue Hells Bells 01

Full Circle at Hells Bells

Hells Bells in 2007 was my first taste of 24 hour adventure racing. I’d still rate it as one of the harder 24 hour courses I’ve done and have since raced 9 Hells Bells in a row.  Unfortunately, I had missed the last two years due to injury, so this year’s race was to be […]

The Hells Bells A1 Competition

Three races down, two to go in the Adventure 1 series and it’s a wide open affair with everything to play for.  Quite a contrast from the inaugural season in 2017 when team Thunderbolt wrapped up the series with a clean sweep. All the big players are back to duke it out again at Hells […]

Team #2 CBRAR Rogue

GODZone Fiordlands with CBRAR

So it’s taken me a while to decompress and digest the experience that was GODZone Fiordlands.  This was my fourth attempt at the race, with my first attempt being the original edition of GODZone that started from the edge of Fiordland National Park in Milford Sound in 2012. That race smashed me and taught me […]
