The premier event, the X-Adventure Long Course includes 34kms of action with a 1500m ocean swim, 12km coastal trail run, and 20km mountain bike. It attracts a range of racers from corporate relay teams through to weekend warriors and elite athletes.

Sam Maffett, General Manager from race organisers Rapid Ascent said he was excited to announce entries are now open to the seventh edition of X-Adventure Dunsborough.

“The landscape around Dunsborough is perfect for the X-Adventure races, the water is a beautiful turquoise, the granite coastline provides superb trail running and some of WA’s best mountain biking is right on the door step,” Maffett said.

“Athletes of all abilities are welcome. Some of Australia’s fastest off-road racers will be up-front but the race atmosphere is very inclusive and encouraging of all athletes, especially with the popular teams categories meaning people need only do one leg to still be involved.”
