The 18hr Dark Side Champs will test the hearts and minds of even the most experienced racers, adding darkness and sleep deprivation to an already demanding 18hr race! This is one of the toughest races on the Australian Adventure Racing calendar.

In teams or 3 or 4, racers will be on the go from midnight Friday until (up to) 6pm Saturday. Racers are required to be self-sufficient as this is a non-supported event and support crews are not required or permitted. Categories include Premier Mixed, Female and Male. The Dark Side Champs event includes:

• Up to 70km Mountain Biking
• Up to 40km Trail Running / Trekking
• Up to 15km Paddling
• Adventure Legs
• Intermediate Navigation

Run in conjunction with the 18 hour Dark Side Championships, the 12 hour Dawn Attack offers a shorter option for those who are newer to racing or who just feel like 12 hours is enough!
