FANS of the World’s Greatest Race, get ready, get set and go. Mackay is running its own greatest for the second year. The car event was organised and created by Katelyn Edmonds and a group of friends. They found like-minded people and Mackay Random Adventures was born, followed by Mackays Greatest Race. The aim is to find clues and solve riddles to get your team to the final destination. 

This will be a team event – each team must consist of one vehicle per team. It is a 2WD compatible event. The minimum occupancy of the vehicle must be two with a diver and a navigator.The maximum is how many you can legally fit in your car. The event came about when Katelyn was spitballing with her friends about what kind of adventure to create and asked, “what if we came up with a sort of world’s greatest race?” The end result was the car race where 35 teams joined in. This was much larger than Katelyn expected. “We got such hype on this event that we decided to do it annually, so this is the second year running it,” she said.

“This year already we have 18 teams signed on, with many more coming after they find out whats going on with work and finding baby sitters. “This all started off as just a one-day event and it just blew up” she said. This next event will be held on August 29 at the Mackay city gates and will be for 130kms over three to four hours. Registration fees are $20 and everyone is urged to drive safely
