State Government support has significantly elevated this weekend’s Anaconda Adventure Race which has attracted a strong field of local, national and international competitors to Western Australia’s South-West.

Tourism Minister Liz Constable said the race a spectacular off-road event in the heart of the Augusta Region continued to develop with support from Eventscorp.

“Eventscorp’s Support has helped establish the Anaconda Adventure Nationally.” Dr. Constable said.

“The Anaconda Adventure Race is now considered one of the toughest endurance races in Australia and one of the world’s biggest Adventure Races.”

“Competitors in this event will follow a spectacular course through true wilderness and untouched landscapes in and around Augusta.” Dr. Constable said.

“The Anaconda Adventure Race starts at the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse and competitors will tackle a coastal run, paddle ocean skis, swim and bike ride through the tall trees on mountain bikes.”

Last year’s race winner and reigning series champion Sean O’Neill is back, this time teaming up with surf lifesaving champion Brendan Sarson in a duo.

There is also a strong contingent of New Zealand adventure racers entered, and West Australian Joanna Fisher is one of the favourites in the women’s event.

The Minister said the event would again include the Anaconda Junior Survivor race, with more than 400 children expected to compete in a 4.5 km fun obstacle course.

“The event is another way to promote the region as an extraordinary adventure holiday destination and also provides the local community with a festival-type atmosphere at the weekend.” the Minister said.

“Eventscorp has also organised the production of a dedicated 52-minute television program which will be distributed nationally and internationally.” Dr. Constable said.
