Adventure Racing is an endurance sport where teams race from A to B across land and water. There is usually no rest during the race and the team will have to decide when (and if) they should sleep. A 24 hour race typically means there is no time for sleep, at all. Challenge your body and mind, in nature, against the elements. Women and men race side by side in the teams of four. To reach the finish line first all team members must work for each other. Reaching the finish line feeling strong while a teammate is struggling means you are not helping the team enough. This is a unique sport that inspires many to lead an active life in the outdoors.
During the series, the teams will collect point based on the ranking in each race. The three best races for each team during the year is the the teams final score. The team with the highest score wins. Simple, right? There are two racing categories. The adventure category is where the points are given and this is the category for the top teams. Both male and female racers must be present in the team and during the season each team can use up to 6 members. The open category is for any formation of teams, mixed, male or female. The team must be at least two and maximum four members at each race. There is no overall standings in the open category. Both categories compete at the same time on the same course. Learn more
