Adventure Racing

Adventure Racing refers to a competition which involves two or more of the following disciplines:

  • Orienteering and Navigation,
  • Cross-country Running,
  • Mountain Biking,
  • Paddling and
  • Climbing.

Course requirements vary from race to race. Races can last a few hours or several days and can cover 10 - 100 miles or more! It is one of the few competitions where just completing a race is often considered a victory.
