What is adventure?
Adventure is about experiencing life. It is about looking at the world from a different perspective. It is choosing to see the beauty from the ordinary and finding ways on how to do it differently. It is about treading a different path, embracing your individuality and connecting with nature.
Adventure is not just hanging off a cliff on a rope it is exploring where you are and choosing to look at it differently. It’s going on a road trip not because you want to reach a particular destination, but because the journey there would awesome!
Adventure is thinking big about who you are. It’s about identity, life and legacy. It fosters curiosity, grit, determination and resilience. Adventure is about getting outside our comfort zone, breaking your routine and committing to the lessons we learn in the outdoors, rising to challenges and unveiling our true potential.
Every day can be an adventure.

Wildside grew out of the need to get more ‘big’ adventure races on the Australian calendar. The best way to train and develop a team, the biggest part of AR, is to race. The problem is that there was only a handful of long adventure races on offer. So we created a race that will go some way to filling this gap. Over the past years we have taken racers to beautiful and challenges spaces and plan to do so for years to come.
Wildside is a founding member of the A1 Australian Adventure Racing National Series. The Adventure 1 Series is the premier National Adventure Racing series in Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, bringing together the best athletes and races in the most challenging yet stunning landscapes each country has on offer.
At its heart, however, Wildside is fundamentally about you. We want it to be the kind of event you want to do, an event you look forward to. Wildside will take you somewhere new. You will be a different racer after you have done this race – that we can promise. So stop talking about it or wondering what an adventure race is like and get organised. This race is your race. The team at Fully Rad Adventure's wants you to have an epic life changing experience. Come and race Wildside. We know you will love it.
