Renewed AR Slovenia out of ARES!
Monday, 13 June 2016 07:41

We are not happy about this news, but AR Slovenia is no longer included in our AR series. After a year break in 2015, new organizers of AR Slovenia decided not to join ARES again. AR Slovenia hosted the 1st AR Euro Champ in 2009, and than they continued in ARES untill 2014. So their history in ARES was 6 years long. Now, without any detailed explanation, they decided not to continue. So they miss the chance to oraganize AR Eurochamp again in the future and we can´t grant any ARES cup points for any teams competing in AR Slovenia.

Race report, Beast of Ballyhoura
Monday, 18 August 2014 06:50

Here is race report from Beast of Ballyhoura - thanks to Wouter-Dirk Huitzing from team Dutch Adventure. Results on our webpage will appear soon:

After leaving the bus at 02.00 a.m., teamnumbers were called out and the teams received their first two maps, for the running and swimming stages. At 02.20 a.m. the race started with an orienteering. It was a mass start, but the first road to the right saw us clear from the rest of the pack, as everybody seemed to follow the main road. A short minute later we came back on the main road, clearly in front of the rest of the teams. Our lead didn’t hold long, as we didn’t want to push ourselves too hard at the beginning of the race. The first two CP’s were easily founded, but hard to dib, as everybody wanted to dib at the same time. Being in front of the race for the first two CP’s was great for the spirits and seemed to set the mood for the rest of the race.
