Adventure racing can be done in teams of 2-5, though there are also solo races, with various disciplines to both amuse and challenge the racers. An adventure race is a lesson in excitement: It may start with shredding through a tight single track on mountain bike, onwards to orienteering and hiking through dense forest, ripping down rapids on a canoe, before finally rappelling down a 100-foot rock face. There’s no telling when a race may finish – it can last from several hours to several days, and can cover anywhere between 10-100 miles.
A winner is determined by whatever team finishes the race. The emphasis in adventure racing is team effort rather than individual achievement, which is another driving factor in the sport’s popularity.
With the Philippines’ varied terrain, many different disciplines can be included in your adventure races:
Land Racing – mountain biking, off-trail driving, rappelling, trekking, caving, horseback riding, hiking, and orienteering, as well as various adventures on scooters, in-line skates, roller skates, and the zip line.
Do it year-round! One of the great things about adventure racing is that it is not hindered by weather conditions. If anything, the weather adds yet another element of excitement to the race. You may even wish to customize your race to the present weather conditions.
Philippine adventure races can be customized to fit the skill level of the racer so that hardcore, technical, and even novice racers will be able to experience and enjoy several disciplines of an adventure race. Sprint races, whole-day and multi-day expedition races can be readily arranged.
