Adventure racing is a combination of two or more disciplines, such as orienteering and navigating, cross-country running, mountain biking, paddling and climbing, and related rope exercises.
An expedition event can span ten days or more, while sprints can be completed in a matter of hours. Typically, there is no dark period during races, no matter how long the race. Racers must choose if or when to rest.
The races are usually continuous – the clock does not stop until the teams cross the finish line. Due to the challenging nature of adventure races, not all teams will finish the course. In long multi-day races the intensity may prevent up to 75% of the teams from finishing the course!
The intent of the sport is to challenge yourself and your team physically, mentally and spiritually, while exploring and experiencing the outdoors.
A common approach to adventure racing is to “compete to complete” – teams work to finish the course more than they strive to beat other teams. There is a strong sense of “it’s you against the course” in adventure racing that other activities just don’t have. Adventure racing challenges athletes to navigate their way through the countryside, using only maps and compasses, and to find a pre-determined number of checkpoints in order to complete the course. Racers cannot use motorized transit or aids such as GPS systems.
