18 Years of Adventure

Over 75 Mass Participation Adventure Events in All Corners of the Globe

WHAT KEEPS US BUSY

The Adventure Racing (AR) World Series unites in competition the worlds best endurance athletes at premiere Qualifier events around the globe. The top two teams at each of these races gain a coveted position on the start line of the annual pinnacle of the sport, the AR World Championship.
XPD is Australia’s own Expedition Adventure Race. Teams of four competitors from around the globe trek, mountain bike, and kayak for three to six days in this world renowned expedition. These adventurers race day and night over a 450-500km course pushing themselves to the ultimate limits of human endurance.
Trackers are a great for events that have previously been hard to watch, due to participants moving over large distances in inaccessible areas. Trackers send their latest position to a google map that anyone can view on their phone, tablet or computer.

Expedition Oregon - Day One.
Twelve hours into Expedition Oregon and the lead teams are halfway through the first Packraft stage. However, the day didn’t quite go to plan first thing this morning when all of the teams boarded the bus and it went in the wrong direction towards last years startline. Consequently, the teams were a little late arriving and the start was delayed by 10 minutes.
In a repeat of last year, Quest AR are setting the pace from the start and challenging other teams to stay with them. Teams were quickly into snowshoes this morning as they climbed Maiden Peak and it was the Swedish team Naturkompaniet that has given chase the hardest. The French team Alpha Dental was also with these leaders but just after CP6 on the way to the first transition they lost a little time with a slightly slower Nav line. These three lead teams had about a 30 minute lead at the first transition over a cluster of American teams, Mountain Race Company, Bones, Untamed New England, and Journey Racing with the Canadian team Leki/BendRacing right in the middle of this group.
Most teams are now on the 30 mile Packrafting stage and as the sun starts to lower on Day One they’re crossing the Lava Fields. There is one tricky checkpoint to find in the middle of the Wikiup Reservoir tonight but otherwise, Navigation doesn’t look too difficult on the first night.
