Spring Challenge Cambridge
Spring Challenge competitors are all women, and the events are the biggest women's adventure races in the world. There are 3 categories.
3-hour (beginner) – Introduction to Adventure Racing. Rafting, non-technical mountain biking, trail and easy off-trail hiking – a bit of a challenge but nothing too silly. Navigation is basic level. Time range 3 to 6 hours.
6-hour (intermediate) – Something to get your teeth into. Kayaking, mostly flat or slow moving water, mountain biking but can have a few rugged bits linking the course together – walking with bike an option in these sections if you're a bit of a Nana (or officially a Nana). Hiking mostly can be on and off trails, can contain rough ground to pass over, slippery stuff, cow poos, stream crossings. Navigation is intermediate level, map and compass knowledge needed. (Unless you trust the team in front of you and you tuck in behind them). Time range 6 to 12-hours.
9-hour (advanced) – The epic version of the Spring Challenge, expect a mission! Time range 9 to 18-hours.
