The Slovenia Adventure Race is just 2 weeks away now and the team are busy preparing. We’re pretty excited about the race and the challenge ahead of us. With no Terrex this year we had to look further abroad in search of another multi day adventure racing fix. The race itself, although maybe a little early in the season, looks like the perfect opportunity for the team to gain some more experience. The race is run over 3 days non stop covering roughly 350km and many disciplines: trekking, mountaing biking, caving, swimming, kayaking, canyoning, abseiling and rollerblading! We’ve been busy over the last few months getting to grips with rollerblading so hopefully it won’t slow us too much. The kit list for the race is coming together at the moment and we’re pestering everyone for the loan of gear. Thanks for the help guys!

At the moment 26 teams have registered and looking at the list there is a good mix of both novice and experienced teams. Its great to have so many taking part so it should be alot of fun. The race format is made up of multiple stages, each one consisting of multiple control points (cp) covering multiple disciplines. All cp’s are optional with the exception of those located at the transitions (ta) between stages. Each cp has a number of points associated with it and the winner is determined by the number of points accumulated during the course of the event. In the event of teams having the same points then time is used as the basis of determining final position.

The race this year will have live gps tracking so you’ll be able to follow us on our journey.
