WELCOME FROM:

HON PAUL PAPALIA CSC MLA, MINISTER FOR TOURISM and HON ALANNAH MACTIERNAN MLC, MINISTER FOR REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The McGowan Government is a proud sponsor of the X-Adventure, Dunsborough through its Regional Events Scheme. The scheme was devised as a way for the Government to support smaller and emerging events in regional Western Australia to boost tourism, increase community vibrancy and participation, and develop regional areas. The Regional Events Scheme plays an important role in positioning Western Australia as an exciting destination to visit and a great place to live by showcasing and promoting a region’s unique and diverse attractions. Sixty-nine diverse regional events across Western Australia have been funded through the 2018-19 Regional Events Scheme. This year’s round includes the Regional Aboriginal Events Scheme with a funding pool of $150,000 exclusively allocated to events delivering Aboriginal activities and experiences. Tourism is a key pillar of the McGowan Government’s plan to diversify the economy, create jobs and develop business opportunities, especially in regional Western Australia. To achieve this we have a two-year action plan in place to help us attract more visitors to Western Australia, encourage them to stay longer, disperse further and do more while they are here. We hope everyone enjoys the event and takes the time to explore the South West region.

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS X-ADVENTURE SHORT COURSE

Race Start, Saturday 30th March

10:30am All competitors in all categories (teams and individuals) will start together. START LOCATION: At the Old Dunsborough Boat Ramp, at the end of Finlayson St. The entire swim is outside the (shark proof) beach enclosure. COURSE MARKING: The run course will be marked with red arrows and pink surveyors’ tape, and the MTB course will be marked with blue arrows and blue surveyors’ tape.

750m Dunsborough Lakes Ocean Swim

The swim leg will commence with a deep water start for all swimmers. The deep water start will be just in front of the Old Dunsborough Boat Ramp, and feature a 60m wide start line allowing plenty of space for all swimmers. See the map below for the swim course - swum in an anti-clockwise direction. Exit the water up the boat ramp and run into T1.

DUNSBOROUGH L

A

K E S

• Swimmers are encouraged to spread yourselves along the entire 60m start line so you have plenty of space, all positions on the start line will be fair with no preferred ends. • Be aware of the buoys marking the course as indicated on the map – it is up to you to make sure you know where to go. Transition 1 (T1): Old Dunsborough Boat ramp car park. Swim > Run • The TA will be divided into number zones. Individuals please pre-place your running gear in the area matching your race number. Leave your wetsuit / swim gear in the same area after changing. • Running gear may be dropped off after 8:30am on Saturday and swim gear must be picked up before 2:00pm • Team runners must wait for their team swimmer in your numbered area inside the TA and transfer timing chip there – NOT outside the TA or at the entry to the TA.

6.2km Coastal Run

Runners exit the TA and must remain on the sand or rocky coastline for the next 2.5km until Castle Rock. When you reach Castle Rock you turn left and run back towards Dunsborough on the coastal walking track. Continue along the marked trail as it turns right, away from the coastal track and ultimately along the edge of the golf course and then into T2 on the 18th fairway. Run leg: • Keep an eye out for course markings at all times (red arrows and pink tape for the short course). • Runners must remain on the sandy beaches and rocky foreshore from T1 through to Castle Rock. • There will be NO water points along the course (this is an X-adventure race!). • Runners should be aware that the first half of the run course includes some very technical running over boulders, along soft sandy beaches and across slippery coastal rocks. We encourage you to take your time to save having an injury (such as rolling an ankle) and then open up a bit more speed on the return (if you have the energy!). Transition 2 (T2): Dunsborough Country Club – 18th Fairway. Run > MTB • The TA will be divided into number zones. Individuals please pre-place your MTB and gear in the area matching your race number. Leave your running gear in the same area after changing. • T2 will be open for MTB gear to be dropped off after 8:30am on Saturday and run gear must be picked up before 2:00pm on Saturday. • Team riders must wait for their team runner next to your bike in your numbered area and transfer timing chip there – NOT outside the TA or at the entry to the TA.

11km Mountain Bike

Riders must walk their bike in the TA and then set off on the marked course adjacent to the golf fairways as it winds its way on a mix of single track and double track through the golf course towards the water tanks at the top of the hill. Continue following the marked course as it twists and turns along a flowing 11km loop within the Golf Course area. Riders must remain alert and watch out for course marking at all times as it is a very wiggly course and it is easy to get onto the wrong section of track if you are not aware of where you are. After finishing the loop all riders come back past the transition area and ride directly through to the finish line on your bike. p8 2019 X-Adventure Dunsborough event program


The MTB leg: • The course comes very close to itself on numerous occasions with riders at different parts of the course being very close to one another. Riders must remain aware and follow the course markings at all times to ensure you follow the correct. • There are no water points on the MTB course - riders must carry their own hydration / nutrition the whole way. • Slower riders must give way to faster riders by making space for them to pass. Faster riders MUST NOT just barge their way past a slower rider but alert them that you are there and then wait until called past. • Riders should be aware that the course is quite technical, twists and turns a lot and includes a lot of loose pea gravel, rocks, obstacles and logs. It is all ridable, but does require technical skill on a mountain bike to do so quickly and efficiently. We will make A and B lines over the more challenging obstacles - A line is more technically B line is easier.

Finish by riding your bike across the finish line

• Riders continue on their bikes directly through to the finish on your bike (as per 2018) • Please keep the expo area clear of bikes once you have finished by racking them up or putting them back on your cars.

At Meelup Beach runners turn away from the coast to and continue along a 3.6km inland loop that will see you running up a 4WD track to Sheens Rd where you turn left and then descending down a long section of single track back to Meelup Beach back past the water point at the 7.6km pt. Runners then head back towards Dunsborough on the beautiful coastal footpath, following the marked trail until it turns away from the coast at the 10.8km pt just before the houses and then finally descends into the transition area on the 18th Fairway of the Country Club golf course. Run leg: • Keep an eye out for course markings at all times (red arrows and pink tape for the long course). • Runners must remain on the sandy beach and rocky foreshore from T1 through to Castle Rock, and after the Castle Rock diversion to Meelup Beach. • There will be a water point with cups set up in the Meelup Beach Car Park at the 4km and 7.6km pts. • Runners should be aware that the first half of the run course includes some very technical running over boulders, along soft sandy beaches and across slippery coastal rocks. We encourage you to take your time to save having an injury (such as rolling an ankle) and then open up a bit more speed on the return (if you have the energy!). Despite being (only) 12km long we think the fastest runners will still take approx 60+mins. Transition 2 (T2): Dunsborough Country Club – 18th Fairway. Run > MTB • The TA will be divided into number zones. Individuals please pre-place your MTB and gear in the area matching your p15 2019 X-Adventure Dunsborough event program


race number. Leave your running gear in the same area after changing. • T2 will be open for MTB gear to be dropped off after 6:00am on Sunday and run gear and bikes must be picked up before 1:30pm on Sunday. • Team riders must wait for their team runner next to your bike in your numbered area and transfer timing chip there – NOT outside the TA or at the entry to the TA.

20km Mountain Bike

Riders must walk their bike in the TA and then set off on the marked course adjacent the golf fairways as it winds its way on a mix of single track and double track through the golf course towards the water tanks at the top of the hill. Continue following the marked course as it twists and turns along long sections of single track and the popular ‘Brown Street’ trail network in Meelup Regional Park and the Dunsborough Country Club golf course area. The course will come back near the Transition Area at the 12km pt where there will be a water point set up allowing riders to refill your bottles. After finishing the loop all riders come back past the transition area and ride directly through to the finish line on your bike. The MTB leg: • The course comes very close to itself on numerous occasions in the single track so riders must follow the trail in front of them and keep a careful eye out for all course markings. • There will be one water point on the course at the ~12km pt although we strongly encourage riders to take all the water they need when they start the ride - it can get hot out there. • Slower riders must give way to faster riders by making space for them to pass. Fast riders MUST NOT just barge through. • Riders should be aware that the course is quite technical, twists and turns a lot and includes a lot of loose pea gravel, rocks, obstacles and logs. It is all ridable, but does require technical skill on a mountain bike to do so quickly and efficiently. We will make A and B lines over the more challenging obstacles - A line is technically more difficult but faster and B line is the easier option.

Finish by riding your bike across the finish line

• Riders continue on their bikes directly through to the finish on your bike (as per 2018) • Please keep the expo area clear of bikes once you have finished by racking them up or putting them back on your cars.
