Anaconda Adventure Race
23 Aug 2011 Filed in: Multisport
It’s been a busy last few months, as I have gone back to work 2 days a week. But finally I have another race on the agenda!
The Anaconda Rapid Ascent event is being held on Sept 11th on the Gold Coast.
Im entered in a team of 4 where each of us will do a leg of the event. The first up is the Swimmer. I havent met him before, but good on him for being able to swim 1.9km in the ocean! whoa.
Next up is the Paddle. Gaz will be doing the 15km ocean and river kayak leg.
Then Colin will do 12.5km run and I will finish up with the 18km MTB leg. Then we all run 2km together to the finish line.
I know Gaz and Colin are super fast and will go hard in their events. I will do my best, but I feel a little underprepared and unfit. But my competitive spirit will kick in when Colin finds me at the transition. Add a bit of adrenaline, and I should be right.
Looking forward to the first race on the Banshee Viento. It’s light and tough so will be perfect for the steep climbs and rainforest conditions I’m expecting out in the Gold Coast hinterland.
