Adventure Races live and die on the strength of their volunteers. This isn't because race directors want something for nothing, but because the sport is particularly niche, and not very media friendly (compared to something like Triathlon - have you ever tried to find a team in darkest night, in the middle of a forest or mountain range, when there isn't a marked course?).
At the same time, adventure racing has one of the strongest communities in endurance sports, not least because the very essence of racing is relationship: you race in teams!
When you add on family, friends, uncles, aunts, cousins, dogs (lots of those), volunteers tend to fall in love with the sport, with the epic struggles they see being undertaken, and come back year after year to support the teams in their endeavours.
If you'd like to become part of the craziest family on the planet (i.e. the AR community), please contact us immediately. Yes, now! We can promise you an experience you won't regret, and definitely won't forget!
