Have you ever wondered what kind of training and preparation is necessary for an expedition length adventure race? Than you’re in luck, as a new web series is starting soon that will give us a behind the scenes look at Team Mandatory Equipment getting ready for the Raid the North Extreme race that will take place this July. The weekly series is set to begin in April, and will follow the team which consists of 3 women and 1 man, as they get ready to endure the 600km (373 mile), 6 day non-stop race.
I’m excited to see where this series goes. I think it’ll give fans of adventure racing further insights into team dynamics and preparation, while possibly introducing new fans to the sport. Adventurer racers are an enthusiastic, athletic, and dedicated bunch, and I’m sure that will come through in the episodes when they begin to air.
Check out the trailer for the show below and visit the Mandatory Equipment Facebook page for more info and updates. Can’t wait!
