What is
adventure racing?

Adventure Racing is an extreme sport, a demanding endurance sport where teams compete in mountain biking, kayaking, rafting, climbing and orienteering. The competitions last up to 7 days without interruption.
Adventure Racing places extremely high demands on both the participants’ physical shape, ability to work together and equipment. Most of the competitions are carried out by four-man teams with three men and one woman, where the entire team together performs all elements of the competition course.
