Adventure racing fans have yet another important date to circle on their calendar for next year, as an increasingly busy schedule adds an international race that is sure to be spectacular.
Last week it was announced that the Adventure Racing World Series will be coming to Switzerland in the from of the Alpine Expedition Race, which will be held on May 24-29 in the Bernese Oberland region of the Swiss Alps. The APEX promises to offer 10,000 meters (32,800 feet) of elevation gain with coed teams of four trekking, climbing, biking, and paddling their way through one of the most amazing landscapes on the planet.
According to this post from Adventure World Magazine, the city of Interlaken will play host to the event, which is being organized by the good folks at Untamed Adventure Racing. Registration for the four-day, non-stop, expedition length race will open on January 10th, 2011.
Looks like this will be another great AR event for 2011, and most certainly will offer as breathtaking of a backdrop as you would find anywhere.
