Alpine Quest Falls Creek is a multi-day adventure race where teams complete the entire course together, with a prologue course on day one and the expedition course of day 2. There is also a shorter adventure expericence explore course.
Each course is determined by control points and consists of kayaking, mountain biking, and trekking legs, with some additional challenges. Teams of four (Expedition course) and teams of two (Explore course) will navigate their way between checkpoints over an unmarked wilderness course, using only a map and compass.
Not only is physical fitness required, but also a proficiency in the disciplines which make up the event. You will ride multiple single tracks, with steep descents on the mountain bike, trek through rough off-road sections, and in the Expedition course, will paddle on moving water, with up to grade 2+ rapids.
