On the 6th of November 2023, for the seven’s time, the women will celebrate health, fitness, friendship, and the great outdoors at the Women Only adventure race.


This time the race will be in one of Melbourne’s best adventure playgrounds Lysterfield park.


Travelling together, teams of two women will navigate by foot, mountain bike, and kayak. To add to the challenge, course maps are only handed out in the morning of the race -a true adventure in the making! 


Women Only Adventure Race is about women making time for themselves and supporting and empowering each other to step outside their comfort zone and have a go. 


The event caters to all levels of fitness and experience. The course consists of approximately 4 km of running, 10 km of mountain biking and 2 km of paddling.


Participants will come away with life-long friendships and will reset their limits of what they can achieve when they cross the final finish line; it really is an amazing experience.


“Women Only Adventure Race is my favourite event; I love seeing women just giving it a go. This is what it’s all about. It is not about winning or losing, although there is a lot of competition happening. It is about an incredible atmosphere, when everyone is so supportive, happy and excited ”, said Maria Plyashechko, event director.


The sold-out event was previously held in Lilydale after it was deferred due to Covid-19 impacts.


The entries to the event are open now.


We invite you to dare yourself to follow your dreams, be brave, and together with your girlfriends make up a team to compete in what will be an absolute gem of an experience!
