MORE than 80 ju­nior rac­ers will bat­tle it out in the ul­ti­mate ad­ven­ture at Pal­larenda Beach on Sun­day.

The record num­ber of en­trants aged 8- 17 in the Ad­ven­turethon Townsville Na­tional Chal­lenge will com­pete in a pad­dle, run­ning and moun­tain bik­ing con­test. Madeleine Wal­lace, 9, is look­ing for­ward to the race and will com­pete for the third time.

“I can’t wait, it’s so much fun,” she said.

“I en­joy work­ing as a team and be­ing a team mem­ber, and push­ing your­self for the rest of the team.

“It’s all about get­ting fit and hav­ing fun and the awe­some.”

Ad­ven­turethon Townsville di­rec­tor Joel Sav­age said the rel­a­tively mild win­ter weather is per­fect for the event and will at­tract com­peti­tors from Mackay, Bowen, Mo­ran­bah and lo­cally.
