BACKGROUND:
Lilyfontein School has been hosting the annual Adventure Race since 2000.  The Lilyfontein AR sums up Lilyfontein's values and ethos that we strive to achieve. Developing young learners to work in teams, identify strengths, understand weaknesses, problem solve, grow grit, endurance, leadership and resilience in a fun, adventurous environment.  Our AR caters for all ages and fitness levels. Adventure Racing is a fast growing sport that incorporates navigational, mental and physical challenges. Teams of 4, with at least 1 member of the opposite gender, compete in various age categories with a unique distance and set of obstacles to complete.  Winning in an adventure race requires more than just speed and fitness. The race requires the team to navigate through several activities to reach specific check points along the way.

  • Mud Overload (former Family Fun Category)
    • The Mud Overload was introduced as a mild category to welcome all, to have a taste, in a fun way, to what adventure racing is all about.  It is targeted to families, friends and colleagues that want to partake but do not want to “kill” themselves whilst participating; this is a relaxed and enjoyable category to cater for all levels of fitness.
  • U19, U15, U13, (SA Champs Qualifiers)
    • The Lilyfontein Adventure race is a Provincial Qualifier for U13, U15, U19 age categories and the winners in these divisions have qualified to participate in the Annual South African Adventure Racing Championships in September 2019.
  • Grade 4-5
  • Grade 1-3
    • There is a healthy support of entries in the Grade 1-3 and Grade 4-5 divisions.  This is attributed to eagerness of both learners and parents to participate and support from local schools.
