An Adventure for Change.........
More than an Adventure Race...
The Quest is an invitation to all true adventurers to experience
an unique adventure challenge. This event is a fully fledged Adventure
Race, with all it's inherent challenges, but without the comfort
of a team to help carry the load when it gets tough, or to assist
with the navigation when the sleepmonster comes to visit.
With a limited minimum equipment list, the pace is expected to
be fast and furious. Split second tactical decision making abilities
will make or break the daily results - but there is always tomorrow
to make up the deficit!
But it is also much more than an Adventure Race as it forms an
integral part of the Wilderness Adventure Education Trust's objectives
of making a difference. Not only will all funds raised will be used
in support of the trust objectives, we will also pursue opportunities
for the competitors to interact with the trust bebeficiaries with
the aim of growing both the sport and the individuals.
This event will require competitors to think "out of the box"
and will demand of support crews to be part of the team as they
will have to contribute to ensure the success of their competitor.
The mobile Race Village will provide a vibrant opportunity for
competitors to interact and promote their sponsors. Novice adventure
racers can get advice and tips from their seasoned counterparts
whilst their support crews prepare equipment and meals for the next
Adventure Racing has always focussed on the team dynamics and the
need for a team to stick and work together. This fundamental part
of this great sport has resulted in it's identity, but unfortunately
this has also made it challenging for competitors to compile teams
and to race at individual capacity. The Quest will change this,
but be prepared for the unexpected, as you might call on your strongest
competition for support.
Whatever your Adventure Racing aspirations, The Quest will meet
and exceed them.
Be part of an exciting new direction in Adventure Racing.
