You've seen the ads. Ultra-fit, enduro-freaks performing unimaginable feats of superhuman self-abuse, pushing their physical and mental limits further and further into the realm of insanity. Extreme, adrenaline, challenge, these words are so commonly used to describe adventure racing that one forgets that it is supposed to be fun! What is an adventure race anyway? When you break it down to its base components, it's really just a self-guided multi-sport adventure tour in a race format. Paddling, hiking (or trail running), biking, simple navigation and mystery challenges. Unless you are in the 'elite' category there is nothing too 'extreme' here! Grab a mountain bike, a canoe, gear, a couple of your close friends and go from point 'A' to point 'B' - hey it's an adventure race!
So you've never done an adventure race before - is this the event for you? Or do you hold the world record for mountain running with dumbbells under your armpits - will you get your adventure fix? The philosophy behind this event is to accommodate outdoor enthusiasts of all levels of fitness and skill. That's why we've designed three race routes in one, such that any active-minded individual - hard-core or play-more - can take part in this day of team-building fun in the great recreational playground on the shores of Vancouver.
