BRISBANE Australias leader in wearable sports and fitness technology have joined forces with Asia-Pacifics premier adventure event specialists as Polar Australia and In2Adventure announce an exciting new partnership which is set to benefit off road and adventure athletes throughout the country.

This announcement is showcased by an exciting new initiative from Polar Australia and In2Adventure aimed at encouraging all level of athletes throughout Australia to have the opportunity to discover the thrills of off-road racing and to take on a new challenge which is as much against mother nature as it is against other athletes.
The In2Adventure Polar Challenge will provide In2Adventure athletes with not only the drive and goals to discover off road racing, but most importantly, thanks to Polar Australia, the technology, training and information required to either take on their first off road event or for those athletes who already know why off-road racing is so enticing, to improve performance.
The In2Adventure Polar Challenge is open to all In2Adventure entrants, and as an added bonus its free to join and take part. Plus, there are some great opportunities to get connected with the Polar technology that can enhance training, no matter what the goals or level of fitness. The overall aim is to help athletes come back stronger than ever before and enjoy the magic of racing outdoors and off-road.
As well as receiving training support, athletes taking part in each MultiSport Festival who sign up for the In2Adenture Polar Challenge have the opportunity to win a fantastic MultiSport Prize Package valued at over $1,500 which includes:
Since creating the worlds first heart rate monitor in 1977, physiological innovation and sports medical research have been at Polars core. Their mission is to bring the benefits of their research within the reach of everyday athletes. The partnership with In2Adventure offers the ideal opportunity to connect with those very athletes who can benefit from that research.
Kylie Glover Polars ANZ Managing Director highlighted the importance of the upcoming race season:
Along with the whole Polar team we are so excited to be working alongside a partner like In2Adventure who share the same passion for sport as we do. Whether you are an elite athlete, or lining up for your first event, its a privilege to have a race series like this to look forward to. Our simple goal is to try and help everyone involved with In2Adventure come back stronger for their next race, and to enjoy the magic of competing outdoors and off-road
The initiative presents some key opportunity for athletes as In2Adventure Event Manager Robyn Lazenby told us,
For many years now we have understood that when athletes discover off road racing that it presents a new and exciting challenge that makes it hard to go back to traditional road sports. The spectacular destinations in which we race, and the amazing scenery we experience is unforgettable.
Despite this, trying off-road sports for the first time can presents some new challenges. For example 10km on a mountain bike or on a trail run is very different to 10km on the road. It requires different energy levels, skills and a strong focus on the here and now.
Thanks to the support of Polar Australia, now athletes will have access to the information and technology they need to support their training goals for off-road racing and to be best prepared to enjoy and excel at their chosen off-road sport.
The partnership with Polar offers such amazing benefits for our athletes and just feels like a natural choice to connect Australias most dynamic athletes with the best wearable technology.
The In2Adventure Polar Challenge will launch at In2Adventures upcoming MultiSport Festival hosted in the spectacular coastlines, beaches and national parks of Port Stephens, NSW on the 18th and 19th of September.
