What’s the sport “Adventure Racing” about?
Equipped with a map and compass, participants are going on a challenging quest with different stations on field, hiking and cycling trails in the nature. Depending on the terrain, the athletes have to combine a wide variety of different sports. In the past years, e.g. orienteering, trekking, mountain biking, and paddling have shown up most in this multisport competition. In addition, every year the organizers prepare a couple of specials, such as climbing, abseiling, archery or laser-rifle shooting. But do not worry, previous experience is not required.
A special team-experience in nature.
One of the most remarkable attributes of the race is, that all competitors participate in teams of two (women, men or mixed). From the starting point to the finish line, the team members stay together and accomplish all challenges together.
For the competition each team can choose between these levels of difficulty:
Beginner (about 30km, 3-4 hours)
Challenger (about 70 km, 8-10 hours)
Master (about 150 km, 20-24 hours).
In 2015 ambitious participants within the Challenger- and Master-Class can challenge their sportiness at the German Championships in Burghausen.
During the whole year, the 6th German Adventure Race Series includes three races in various regions:
• 05-06th June 2015 Burghausen
• 26-28th June 2015 Auenland
