Adventure Racing requires a team to be extremely conscious of the equipment carried since every ounce carried slows you down.

Race disciplines range from miles of trekking, navigation through dense forests, mountain biking, horseback, canoeing, kayaking, ascending, rappelling, and more.  

Here’s a sample of the type of equipment we carry during a race.

  • Each team member wears a backpack (700-1800 ci)
  • Bike helmet
  • Gloves
  • Trekking poles (Leki, of course!)
  • Ascenders
  • Carabiners, climbing harness, and webbing
  • Water, water, and more water
  • Dry bag
  • Knife, easily accessible
  • Lighter
  • Survival blanket
  • More water
  • Iodine tablets
  • First aid kit
  • Compass
  • Topographic maps
  • Waterproof map case
  • Mechanical pencil and highlighters for marking the maps
  • Don’t forget the water
  • Headlamp
  • Extra batteries
  • Bike lights
  • Energy bars, gels, etc.
  • Whistle
  • Kayak paddle
  • Extra batteries
