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.

Tuesday, 02 July 2013 17:26

After 50 long hours, 400 kilometres, two sleepless nights and numerous adventures on the way the teams have successfully crossed the finish line. Everything is forgotten when the teams finally reach the desired point, especially when they reach it safe and sound. They’ve got so many different stories to tell, but the smiles on their faces are telling the same feeling of joy and excitement.

The best result goes to the Czech team Salomon – Suunto/Opava Net – Nutrend. They have been strong all the way through the race and managed to have the best tactic. The second team on the podium is also the Czech team CZ AR Team Berghaus – Nutrend – Merida and the third place was won by the Danish team Salomon Trail Tour. The best home team Durasport Pusotlovec Rajd took the fifth place.

 
The 12th multisport race “Red Fox Adventure Race” is over.
Tuesday, 02 July 2013 17:08

As in the previous years, the competition was unbelievably tough but the new format of the race - a mixture of straight and circuit distances with elements of rogaining - kept the spectators, organisers and sportsmen guessing until the last minute as to who would come out on top. Even after the maximum allowed time was over, it took no less than two hours to collect the preliminary results.

As a result, the winner in the mixed four-person category was the international "Ace Adventure Team", which comprised sportsmen from the Czech Republic, Latvia and Estonia.

In the men's two-person race the "Caucasus Race" team from Rostov-on-Don walked away with the victory. In the mixed two-person race the "362 degree" team scored more points than any other team.

A complete list of preliminary results from the Red Fox Adventure Race 2013 can be viewed here.

 

 
Open letter to european AR organizers and/or national AR representatives
Thursday, 30 May 2013 08:43

Dear race organizers and/or AR national representatives!

You know our ARES race series very well, i hope. We are here to do our best in developing AR sport in Europe. If you wish more info, you can check our website www.areuroseries.com.

Now, we want to move our attention on new project and focus on better international cooperation in Europe. Some of you allready heard about this idea, some meaby not. There were in the Europe more activities in the past, which aimed to this goal. With this letter I would like to introduce you project „Adventure Racing European Association“  and invite you in this project.

The goal of this project is to establish new Organization  „Adventure Racing European Association“ (AREA). The reasons for establish AREA are in general these:

  1. Races and organizers/national associations can be part of European federation to benefit of a European structuring,  financial resources, funding; we have to set our Statutes... (AREA Council should be established (President, Vice-presidents, Members of Council))
  2. We need to set up basic set of rules, we have to build decription of disciplines, race classess,  we have to describe race events selection process in ARES... (Sport commission should be established (Chairman, members))
  3. We need to coordinate our work, because it´s necessary to develop our sport together, it will help us to be more visible and understandable for public and media and that way we can gain more attention and possible sponsors (Communication office should be established)

Of corse, these are only first steps and another issues will come to discussion soon. I expect at least 3-5 people in every area should be selected at the start, or every participated country should have their respresentative.

It´s important to know, that the participation is free of charge at the startof this project. You don´t have to pay anythink. Just your activity, readiness to cooperate and enthusiasm are expected. Every country should have „National representative of AREA“ in close future, if you decide to cooperate (and it does no matter, if you are „just“ an race organizer, or if you are an deputy of a real AR national assotiation). Possible costs, which are expected at the start, will be reduced to minimum (web site, headquarters office etc.) and will be covered by Czech resources (party public/party privat).

Dear colleagues, we expect your feedback till the June of 15. If you have some national association or another not formal group, you can discuss till that time. But if your answare will be positive, we need to know at least one name (person), who will be your national representative in AREA. Next, till the end of June, we will make selection and establish our council and another commisions.

Do not hesitate to contact me for your questions and/or ideas.
