West Coast
Adventure Race

May 6-7, 2016

Experience the true och naked feeling of pure adventure racing with us.

WCAR is a combination of stunning sea kayaking with a free horizontal view and the west coast barren nature, demanding biking in the deep forests and trekking inland during the darkest part of the day.
A true challenge for everyone and  even the toughest will soften after more than 24 hours of non-stop racing.

WCAR is an unsupported 24 hour adventure race in Bohuslän, with the finish line east of Lysekil in Bohuslän.
The official racing class will consist of mixed teams of 4 people.
