First up, the Terra Traverse race will make it’s inaugural run from October 5th through the 11th in Quebec, Canada. Meanwhile, the 2008 Adventure Racing World Championship (ARWC) will be hosted by EcoMotion in Brazil starting on October 20th and continuing through November 9th. The exact location of the ARWC has yet to be announced however.
Terra Traverse is hoping to make it’s mark on the adventure racing scene this season, and is another of the ever increasingly popular stage race events. The race is headed by AR legends Ian Adamson and Issac Wilson whom I’m sure are very busy devising a course that will be both beautiful and demanding all at the same time.
The adventure racing calendar is getting quite crowded this year, as the article notes. Besides these two races, the top teams will have to also decide which events they’ll be able to compete in. The Fall looks especially crowded with the XPD Australia set to go from November 17-28, and the Southern Traverse scheduled for about the same time.
One thing is for sure, there will be no shortage of big races for adventure racing fans this year, and we should see the best team in the World going head to head regularly in the months ahead.
