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.

A mountain biking trilogy of 3 days riding through the Tasmanian wilderness. Each day is a point to point stage with leaders expected to take 3-3.5 hours and the remainder or the field having up to approximately 8 hours to finish the route.

Maybe, as my entry fee is already paid for next year, I could lash out and purchase the, post ride bike service, or the tent set up package, or both !!!

Pity my 15 year old son was not offered a refund as he can’t participate next year. As per your website... stating if event cancelled you would refund as much of the entry fee as possible. Pretty poor even when he offered 20% off to cover your costs. He saved up for the entry himself and I’m very disappointed in your replies.
