What is Adventure Racing: https://youtu.be/wnkHvAxeV4c
By now we all really understand that adventure racers like to explore Mother Nature by going to places where others haven’t been before, to feel tough by taking on endurance distances either by MTB, on foot, or on a kayak … and to take on the world by facing the hard and sometimes unforgiving elements of the weather, whether it’s a scorching hot day, rain coming down hard or a gusty wind that’s testing their guts and spirit for this sport we all love so much. And to top it all off, the navigation part of it just put adventure racers in another league. Excited to join us?
Make this time as a family & friends’ weekend out of it and bring all of them to stay over and to cheer your team. One can reach us to inquire and book for your friends & family separately. And note these spots fill out fast so be quick.
We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to this amazing community of adventure racing.
