The popularity of World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji on Amazon Prime has inspired obstacle course racers everywhere. We want to know more about “adventure racing” including what events are out there and how do we sign up? For the record, some event websites (e.g., active.com) lists popular OCR events among their lists of adventure races. However, there’s a huge crop of multi-sport adventure races you’ve never even considered. Here are a few that have piqued our interest . Best of all, you don’t have to travel all the way to Fiji to participate.
Most adventure races seem to be a combination of running, biking, and paddle-boarding with the occasional addition of climbing. Keep an eye on upcoming adventure races through the United States Adventure Racing Association, and be sure to outfit your next adventure with MudGear.
