CHALLENGER

The CHALLENGER race course is the same as the PRO and PRO-4 race course. The difference is the obligitary rest periode of minimum 4 and maximum 6 hours. The race is only different in time and special arrangements have been made for resting and receiving a gearbag. For this reason the registration fee will be the same as the PRO category.

DISCIPLINES

Trekking/running
During the race long & short sections are planned.

Mountainbiking
Rolling hills and short steep climbs. And of course some bike-pushing and maybe some carrying.

Compass orienteering
Navigate on a mostly blanc map using your compass and counting steps.

Run&Bike
Share one mountainbike without using it at the same time. Communication is the keyword, you don’t want to lose your race partner in the dark forests at night.

Canoeing
Short canoeing section, to rest the legs for a short time. You will carry one mountainbike on the canoe. Bring some bands to tighten the bicycle to the canoe.

Special Tasks
