There are two classes to choose from depending on your experience, fitness, navigational dexterity or just sheer brass neck! You choose. In either class you can enter as (a) team of 2, 3 or 4, and these can be mixed or single gender team formats. We’ll reveal the prize structure for these classes and team formats in a little while.
|You might find it easier to get a team of 2 together, and perhaps you’ll be fast over the ground with that combo. It might be the (off)road to greater things when you find another teammate at the Wan Dae and go on to enter a team of 3 into the Rat Race or other events such as the Ace Race. With a team of 4 entered in the Wan Dae it is a great stepping stone to the Wilderness ARCexpedition AR taking place in Lochaber.
Either way, you’ll find the teamwork aspect challenging and rewarding, and remember, for most of the other events mentioned above you’ll need a woman on the team!
So, here are the classes and an overview of the event format;
Simply Blended Class
Up to 5 hours of activity, breaking down to approx 2 hrs of biking, 2 hrs of running (and maybe some walking) and 1 hr of kayaking. During the 5 hrs we’ll hit you with a team problem solving exercise and where we can incorporate them, devilish obstacles. The running and biking will of a score format which means you have a set time to get to as many checkpoints as you can within the time limit. These will be worth different values so you’ll have to figure out which ones you have time to get to or have the energy or desire to push yourself to. If you want to take it easier then go for the controls that you feel comfortable collecting within the time available. This class of the event starts at 1pm, which means that you’ll be piling into the finish at the same time as the Cask Strength, at 6pm. Suitable for those wishing to have their first go at adventure racing or for a less strenuous day out.
Cask Strength Class
Up to 8 hours of activity, breaking down to approx 3 hrs of biking, 3 hrs of running (and maybe some walking) and 2 hrs of kayaking. During the 8 hrs we’ll hit you with a team problem solving exercise and where we can incorporate them, devilish obstacles. This class of the event starts at 10 am, which means that you’ll be piling into the finish at the same time as the Simply Blended, at 6 pm. For those looking to push themselves that bit harder and who may have a little previous AR experience, even if that’s one Rat Race, through to those super fit teams looking for a good day’s racing.
