AR on AR 27. Your First Adventure Race

03.01.2024See All Event Posts Follow Event

Many people are intimidated by the apparent complexities of adventure racing. This video hopes to demystify what it's like to take part in a short 6hr race, here in the UK. Seriously, anyone can compete. In fact, it's much easier than doing a triathlon, a marathon, and arguably even easier than doing a 5k!

The race shown here is an event that was held by, well known in UK AR circles, especially for their races held in the south. I took one of my sons along, and it was his first time ever doing an adventure race. Yes, it was made easier for him as I was there to lead, but as you'll see in the video, there were other teams comprising complete novices who took part in the challenge.  

And one last detail that wasn't in the video: we used a compass for about 30 seconds total over the whole 6hrs. The rest of the time we navigated by matching stuff in the world to stuff on the map!   :)
