Adventure racing is an intimidating sport. You have to be able to mountain bike, trail run/bushwhack/trek, paddle a kayak, ascend and descend ropes, all while using your map and compass to navigate from one checkpoint to the next and finish the course. When I started I was very confident on my feet as well as riding a mountain bike, these are sports I already did for fun. However I had very little experience on a rope. So I sought out the proper training to learn how to ascend and rappel. AR is not rocket science, but it's nice to have someone who is experienced help you along the way.
In an effort to help the continued growth of adventure racing my team DART nuun frequently puts on adventure racing clinics. Give in to that curiosity and come check out our free class next week.
