ARWS - Adventure Racing World Series
Teams Prepare For the Adventure Race World Championships in Sri Lanka

Press Release – 8 January 2019

The Adventure Racing World Championships will be held in Sri Lanka in December this year and ahead of entries opening in February teams are preparing for the most competitive and high profile expedition adventure race of the year, and the opportunity to visit a dream destination.

The destination announcement was made ahead of last year’s World Championships, which attracted 60 teams from 20 countries to Reunion Island in November. This was to allow teams extra time to plan and prepare for this once in a lifetime opportunity to visit an island which is a hotspot destination for travellers.

The race brochure quotes Lonely Planet on Sri Lanka. “You might say Sri Lanka has been hiding in plain sight. Lying between the more trodden paths of India and Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka’s history, culture and natural beauty are undeniably alluring. It’s the place you haven’t been to yet, that you should.”

Since then Lonely Planet have announced Sri Lanka as the #1 country to visit in 2019, and it’s been voted the top emerging destination by top international travel writers.  With a warm climate, tropical beaches, lush highlands covered in tea plantations and verdant forest, a rich wildlife and biodiversity, a historic Buddhist culture and a welcoming and friendly people it’s a perfect destination for travellers ... and for Adventure Racers (who are all travellers and explorers at heart).
The race is expected to cover 600km, exploring the hill country and the South of the island over a period of 4-8 days, with transfers via Colombo and race HQ set up near the Southern Beaches. 

Teams of 4 (all co-ed) will race non-stop on a course combining trekking through the forests and plantations, mountain biking on country roads and trails, and paddling on rivers, lakes or the ocean. (The course is kept secret until the very last minute.)

They will head off the beaten track to areas few travellers see, meet local people, visit historic cultural locations and encounter exotic wildlife on their journey.
Excited teams have already set aside the first two weeks in December and are waiting for entries to open knowing places are limited. 

It isn’t just the world’s elite adventure racing teams who are drawn to Sri Lanka and the competition of the World Championships, the race is also open to any teams who want to take on the ultimate sporting contest in an amazing location.

One such is a newly formed team from the UK who are busy planning to get their entry in and take on a challenge which is new to them. The team comprises athletes who are former Olympic medallists and international level competitors at hockey, mountain biking and squash, and who have a background in ecology and conservation.

Team captain Anton de Leeuw said, “As a team, conservation is engrained in our DNA and our fundraising so the opportunity to experience the rich biodiversity and wonderful array of endemic species in Sri Lanka is perfect for us and the extraordinary beauty of the landscapes, people and deep cultural history will provide a much needed positive distraction from our endurance.
 
“For us the AR World Champs is the pinnacle of endurance events where the sport’s greatest athletes and legends compete. It will pit the team against the most arduous, enduring and exhausting competition, both within ourselves’ and against other teams.”

The race will be the first time the Adventure Racing World Championships has been held in Asia and Ryan S. Blair, who captained The North Face Adventure Team  from Hong Kong and Thailand in the last World Champs said, 

“It is definitely exciting and perhaps overdue to see an ARWC in Asia with the incredible rivers, mountains and wild landscapes coupled with the amazing variety of cultures and the welcoming people we have here.”

“Asia has a long history with the sport of adventure racing, starting with an early Raid Gauloises in Malaysia, as well as the National Geographic Action Asia challenge which began nearly 20 years ago.  In recent years we have seen Asian athletes have huge potential with both Chinese and Thai racers becoming world class and competing in the international and influential multi-sport stage races in China.”

Entries will open on February 15th with 30 places available to any team with an AR World Series ranking at $5,500, after which wild card and general entries are available with prices rising to $6,500. Entries will remain open until the end of July or until all places are taken (which is likely to happen).

The ARWS is now looking for local partners in Sri Lanka to be part of this unique event which will be televised to over 100 countries and bring a large international media contingent.

The first race in this year’s AR World Series is also in Asia, with Expedition India joining the series in March.  This is the first of 9 races around the world leading up to the World Championships from 3-13th December.  Winners of each Qualifier are automatically awarded a place on the start line in Sri Lanka.

Just had to share this one.... our trackers sleeping in the field last week.  What the ZZ’s tell us is that the tracker hasn’t moves for an hour. We still know the tracker is on as it sends us a heartbeat showing it is in the same location. This is important for events that go overnight. The ! symbol shows if the tracker hasn’t moved for 30min but does not have a signal or heart beat. This happens when a trackers is out of mobile range or has a technical problem and isn’t sending us information. Most often, it means someone is inside a large building and it can’t see the sky.
