Its just days to go now until this years Adidas Adventure Race in Stirling Scotland. We’re all very excited to be taking on what is shaping up to be a great race. The race will be made up of a broad range of teams from elite teams containing ex World Champions to novices taking on their first expedition race. The schema for the race was published earlier this week and we got our first glimpse of what lies ahead. We won’t recieve the race maps until closer to the event but we now know the structure of the race:

Stage 1: Trail Run 10km
Stage 2: MTB 80km
Stage 3: Canoe 6km
Stage 4: Trek 30km (optional)
Stage 5: Canoe 40km
Stage 6a: MTB 30km, Canyoning
Stage 6b: MTB 90km, Orienteering 10km
Stage 6c: MTB 70km
Stage 7: Trek 105km
Stage 8: MTB 40km
Stage 9: Canoe 60km
Stage 10: MTB 60km

The race looks like a bit of a monster totaling over 630km. Our aim as always will be to have fun, enjoy the race and most importantly finish.
