What is adventure racing?

December 18, 2009 AdventureLisa 0

Popularised by television coverage of Mark Burnett’s Eco Challenge events, adventure racing is no longer an obscure extreme sport. In a classical sense, adventure racing is a multi-discipline multi-day endurance sport where competitiors compete in teams of four, navigating from checkpoint to checkpoint to cover vast areas in a number of disciplines. Sprint and short course categories now exist, luring those hesitant adventurers out for a morning or day of gloriously dirty, off-road fun.
