The Urban Max is part adventure race, part scavenger hunt and part amazing race, taking teams of two through the heart of the host city. This event is for all skill and fitness levels, with a number of the activities needing more brainpower than muscle.
Event Wrap and Results
News Date: 11th December 2012
Wentworth Park in Ultimo was chosen as the Urban Max event centre for 2012 due to its close proximity to the CBD and the 2012 event returned to Sydney under cool, cloudy conditions.
The race began at 9am with 500+ teams required to make the inevitable decision of whether to sit and solve the clue sheet or make a dash for the city and work out the checkpoint locations on the run.
With minutes fast ticking by, it was clear to all that the majority of participants had opted to stay and plan their course before leaving the event centre.
The checkpoint activities were varied to keep everyone interested and locations had teams travelling to sites all over Sydney, including kayaking in North Sydney, indoor climbing at Sydney University, golf at Moore Park and photos at Paddington.
All teams that took part finished the course with a smile on their faces and it was great to hear how supportive teams were of each other.
Congratulations must go to Mike and James from team - Out on Parole who completed all obstacles and took out the Racing category in under 3 hours, along with Emma and Kyha from team - The Peachers with their time of 2:04 for the Social category. The date for the 2013 edition has been set for Saturday 2nd November 2013, with entries opening on 3rd June 2013.
And for all those living in Perth, entries for the 2013 Kathmandu Urban Max will open on Monday January 14th.
