The Adventure Racing World Champs are no walk in the park. In fact not many can even conceive the idea of racing for between five and eight days on the trot. And no, before you ask, there is no cosy bed to go home to at the end of every day. Instead you will steal the odd 40 minute kip in a ditch on the side of a road, all the while hoping you are not going to get bitten by one of the plethora of poisonous snakes the race organisers warned you about.
But it is all in the spirit of adventure racing and of course good fun. You and three fellow teammates will kayak, mountain bike, trek, run and take on some breathtaking rope sections along the Amazon, The Andes and the Pacific Coast. While this might sound totally bonkers, it offers escapism at its very best, quite literally the adventure of a lifetime.
