We have established Xcite to bring the fun and excitement of urban and off-road adventure racing to the Sunshine Coast.
After having competed in a number of orienteering, rogaining and adventure races in SEQ, we thought “Why don’t we have races like this on the Sunshine Coast?”.
Throughout 2015, we dreamt of running an urban adventure race around the Mountain Creek/Brightwater to showcase the area where we train. Our aim is to bring fun urban and off-road adventure races to the Sunshine Coast, that will be available and achievable for anyone with a get out and do it attitude, at an affordable price. There are many places on the Coast, and beyond, where we are planning races that have all the elements of adventure racing including trail running, kayaking, mountain biking, as well as other challenges we have in mind.
In 2017, we ran two Urban Adventure Races, being the Brightwater Bash and Twin Waters Urban Adventure Races. In 2018, we organised a fully off-road race conducted within the Ewan Maddock Dam precinct on the Sunshine Coast. For 2019, we are putting together two races. The first race will again be at Ewan Maddock Dam (the Dam Dash 2), although with a change of course location. Enter the race through the Events/Upcoming Events page. The second race is in the planning stages, and details will be announced soon.
As well as organising races, we have also competed as Xcite AR at a number of foot and multi-sport rogaines over the last 2 years. During 2018, we were pleased to have additional competitors racing under the Xcite name for the first time. Thanks to Adam, Tony, Sharon and Sheraiz.
