The Wildfire Raid adventure race heads to Bribie Island

A sell out edition of the race is set to challenge teams over a scenic course

In a little over two weeks, competitors from across South East Queensland will descend upon the western shores of Bribie Island for the sixth annual running of the Widlfire Raid adventure race.  This year represents one of the largest fields in the race’s history with the 6 hour event selling out and places in the half course option rapidly filling.

A scenic course awaits teams as they navigate a wilderness course with map and compass, exploring the local area by foot, mountain bike and kayak. The race returns to the Pumicestone Passage area after last year’s edition in Donnybrook.  The location is a scenic gem, offering up terrain that is a little flatter and more friendly to novice teams compared to races that head inland towards the mountains.  In saying that, there will be plenty of strategic challenge for the elite teams as they plot a course to collect as many check points as possible in the six hour time period.

The Wildfire Raid has again received outstanding support from Wildfire Sports and Trek along with the Moreton Bay Regional Council.  Be sure to check out the local accommodation options here:

“We’re really excited to return to the Moreton Bay area for the Wildfire Raid this year” said course designer Adam Power.  “The Pumicestone Passage offers up some beautiful waterways to kayak on with plenty of strategic course setting options amongst the various tidal channels and small islands.  Teams don’t need to travel too far either to find themselves in some great bushland for mountain biking and trekking as well.  I can’t wait to reveal this year’s course to teams”.

Racing kicks off at 9:00am on the morning of Saturday 25 March.  It’s not too late to get an entry in at
