Adventure Racing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, with a great human interest factor and growing media coverage.

Adventure racing is a team sport where typically 3 or 4 team members (of mixed gender) stay together while they navigate a course that is disclosed to them only hours prior to the race start. The core disciplines that make up an adventure race are mountain biking, kayaking, trekking and navigation. Each race also introduces different/specialist challenges which can include such activities as swimming, coasteering, ropes work, rock climbing, rafting, canoeing, inline skating and even triking!

In the UK the most popular races are the Rat Race Urban Adventure Series (Urban), the ACE Race One Day Series (S of England), the Open 5 Adventure Series (N of England) and Wan Dae Series (Scotland).

The courses are usually set in scenic areas and typically take competitors to places they would never have gone to normally, or in the case of the Rat Races to sample unique experiences or urban locations.
