Ipswich unveiled as Queensland's New Destination for Adventure, as Team Mountain Designs take out the 2014/15 18hr Dark Side Championships

This weekend Ipswich unveiled itself as Queensland's new destination for adventure at the Mountain Designs Adventure Race Australia 18hr Dark Side Championships and 12hr Dawn Attack.

Almost 200 brave souls battled it out throughout the night and day on mountain bike, foot and boat to cover the 110km Dark Side and 70k Dawn Attack courses in some of Queensland's most picturesque recreational areas which have never before been open to the public.

Ipswich council is leading the way in encouraging recreation in this beautiful part of the world and our competitors got to experience it first hand in a challenging, gruelling, yet rewarding night and day of adventure action. Couple this with a family day of fun in Kholo Gardens and Ipswich had it all covered.

In a hard fought battle it was Team Mountain Designs who took out the win for the second consecutive year with Team Explore in 2nd and Tri Adventure in 3rd.
