ADVENTURERACE

Adventureracing is a relatively new sport in Denmark. In an adventurerace different individual sports disciplines are combined into a team sport. We work with disciplines such as MTB, climbing activities, cooperation exercises, orienteering, kayaking, inline skating and water activities. The activities are mixed in mini adventure races. If you are willing to make an effort, we ensure fun challenges whatever your level is.

Adventurerace is packed with action, power and sweat. We will challenge you personally, physically and as a team player. Team effort, communication and cooperation is essential for success in adventurerace.

 

Adventurerace at Vejle Sports School

Give yourself the chance to try adventurerace with two of Denmark’s most experienced adventurerace teachers.

The team as a whole is not stronger than the weakest link, which is why team effort and cooperation is the key to this sport.  

It does not matter whether you are a complete beginner or a world champion in one or more of the sports. We ensure challenges on all levels. The most important is that you are ready for new challenges, team spirit and having fun.

All equipment for the class is available at the school. You only need to bring a pair of running shoes and sports clothes that can get dirty and wet. We will mostly train in the surrounding forest *Nørreskoven’ where the Nordic championship in mountain biking was held in 2016 and the Danish championship in adventurerace was held in 2017.

To me adventureracing is the ultimate sport that will challenge you as a person and in so many levels. As an adventureracer you not only have to master lots of different disciplines, but you need to be a teamplayer as well. It is all about knowing yourself well, but also knowing your teammates and your role in the team. Adventureracing intergrates the best of all sports: sublime experiences in nature, multisports, competition and not least the idea of integrating both sexes into the same competition.

Jeanette about adventurerace

Some of my best memories are from adventurerace activities. The experiences in nature and the close teamwork is what I really love about it. I love to pass on this fascination. I think it is interesting to work with the different technical disciplines, but also working with the tram effort in training and competition. Adventureracing can give you competencies for life.
