Adventure Racing

Think triathalons, IronMan competitions, extreme marathons and you have an idea of what this sport is about. Most Florida adventure races include trail running, mountain biking and a paddling event. Orienteering and navigation are also a key part of races, but this is only the beginning. Part of the appeal of adventure racing is expecting the unexpected. Some races involve zip wires, horses, tubing and …you get the idea.

An “expedition event”can span ten days or more while sprints can be completed in a matter of hours. There is typically no dark period during races, irrespective of length; competitors choose when or even if they want to rest. The rules of adventure racing vary by race but all races include the three cardinal rules: motorized travel is not allowed; there is no outside assistance allowed except at designated transition areas or from competitors, and teams must carry all gear.
