Adventure racing is a combination of two or more disciplines including navigation, orienteering, cross-country running, mountain biking, paddling, climbing and related rope skills. This kind of racing event happens in a span ten days or more while the sprints can be completed in a matter of hours.

What is interesting about adventure racing is there is no dark period during the races, irrespective of length; teams can choose if or when to rest. This kind of race is tough; every participant is determined to win the game. We all know that only few are chosen to engage in this kind of sport and only few are victorious to get to the top three positions, but even though some teams lose we all know they are among the toughest athletes who have the courage to play this kind of sports whether they are men or women they all should be proud of themselves.

Watching this kind of sport really excites me, I was once wishing to part of this kind of race. Who knows I might have a chance to play this kind of game soon. haha.
