EuroSeries Adventure Race

Do not enter lightly...

The Masters course is part of the Adventure Race EuroSeries (ARES).

We put an honor and big effort into creating an unforgettable adventure and showing some of Denmarks wildest nature. Teams will have to navigate remote coastlines, endless moorlands, easyflowing rivers, large fiords, green forests. We will use the nature itself to make a harsh race testing team skills to the maximum.
We will kick off the event with a memorable and spectator friendly prologue and finish and throughout the race present racers with tasks that involves both cultural, historical and natural landmarks without compromising the spirit of an real expedition adventure racing!

The distance of the race will be close to 450 km on a course without loops and will go from A – B.
Denmark has many smaller slopes, which make it a little more difficult to find a good rhythm for the teams. In addition, we have many areas with mixed surfaces, so the Master course will make great demands for teams to change many times along the way. Sleep, hunger and temperature fluctuations are also challenges for the teams. The fastest teams can manage without sleep, but everyone gets a minimum of two nights on the route.

Welcome to a true adventure testing your team skills to a maximum, but granting you with an experience of a lifetime.

DISCIPLINES

  • Paddling (kayak/canoe) 30%
  • Trekking/Running 30%
  • MTB 38%
  • Rope/Climbing 2%
  • Navigation 100%

PADDLING (KAYAK/CANOE)
Paddling stages can take place both on rivers, lakes and more open waters. All teams will at some time be on the water during dark hours. The stages will largely test the teams’ ability to maintain stable progress for a long time.
The stages on the water take place either in canoe or 1 double kayak and 2 single kayaks. This equipment is provided by the organizers.
It is allowed to bring your own kayak paddles, canoe paddles and vests. If you do not have this equipment yourself, it can be borrowed by the organizers. The equipment is handed out before starting, so the team itself is responsible for placing it in the right bags.

TREKKING/RUNNING
Running stages (sometimes also called trekking as the pace drops through the race) will take place in many different types of terrain. And the resistance from the terrain will also vary largely through the course. Navigation at these stages will sometimes be simple, and at other times very demanding. In short, varied running stages should be expected.
The stages on foot will both be short and provide a needed break from other disciplines, and so long that they really become a physical and not least mental challenge for the teams.

MTB
The MTB brings the teams wide. On two wheels, the teams can pass large distances, and the teams that are good at helping each other will be able to keep really high speed on some of the stretches. But the MTB stages also come through terrain where the teams MTB skills will be tested.

ROPE/CLIMBING
All climbing gear will be provided by the organizers and skilled staff will be taking care of all rope sections.

NAVIGATION
Throughout the race, navigation will be crucial. The teams navigators are challenged to review long road choices and to find items in demanding terrain. Additionally, there will be stretches that get so long that the concentration fails along the way. Here the most skilled navigators will have prepared how to get the concentration traced back on the map.

We use different types of maps throughout the race – from detailed 1:10000 orienteering maps to 1:50000 maps for overview and rough orienteering.
It is not allowed to bring own maps.
