Adventure Racing World Series
The AR World Series is a collection of around ten adventure races staged around the world, one of which is nominated the world championship race for the given year. Races are for mixed teams of four and they tend to last between four and six days, and consequently they are at the extreme end of adventure racing. Member races come from as far afield as Australia, China, South Africa, France, Spain Paraguay and the United States (which staged the World Championship for 2017, at Cowboy Tough in Wyoming in early August) and each varies in character according to the terrain of the country. The 2018 final will be Raid in France in the French island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean. The AR World Series website is at ARWorldSeries.com. Image courtesy of XPD/Geocentric.
