Basics of adventure racing

Posted by Swati S.

If you feel you are ready to move beyond the regular exercise routine of walking and jogging to explore something that really gets the adrenaline flowing, then you try testing your physical and mental endurance by participating in an adventure race. What Is It? Started around 1995, adventure racing is a team sport where each member of the team has to cross the finish line to win the race. This includes completing a number of activities, such as hiking, paddling, and biking. If you are thinking about participating in an adventure race, here are a few basic pointers to help you get started on the right note.

1. Firstly, you don't need to be a top-class athlete to participate. As long as you are in a reasonably good physical; condition, you will be fine.

2. It is a team sport - so make sure you are in a team with which you share a good working relationship.

3. It is always best to get as much information as you can before signing up. Talk to your local clubs, check up on the Internet, look up magazines, or talk to somebody who has been a participant.
