Hi Fellow: Adventure Racer,

USA Today amongst others has heralded adventure racing as one of the world's fastest growing sports, with competitors jumping at the chance; to mentally; and physically challenge&; themselves amid the spectacular backdrop of the great outdoors.

So, Just how do you get started, what is the minimum equipment you need, what kind of training is required , How are you going to train, find a team to work with so that you can compete non-stop, for many days over countryside that may require you to run, bike, trek, climb, orienteer, swim, horse ride, paddle, canoe, flat or white water in a sea kayak, ascend cliff faces, abseil down mountainsides and into caves, navigate, sail, inline skate and more.

If you are a Beginner Adventure Racing I would not recommend starting as I did with a full on Expedition Race, but rather a short race of a few hours, in these races all you generally need is ; mountain bike. Sprint races usually comprise of three basis elements, trail running, mountain biking and Kayak/Canoe, which is often provided by the organizers, so your start up costs are kept to a minimum, in fact you often don't even need to have a team.

You were the ones to make this an adventure

It does not matter if you are a novice or an expert you will learn a lot about yourself and will soon be undertaking activities, which you may have once thought were beyond you. Team dynamics will work to help you achieve your dreams. Soon it could be your face you see on screen as you seek to to complete a multi-day expedition race.

David Ogden is a master adventure racer with knowledge of the sport having raced against some of the best in the world, including such racers as John Howard, from New Zealand  and Ian Adamson from USA, during the Elf Authentique Adventure in the Philippines 1999. The Expedition Mata Atlantica 2002, in Brazil, saw his team twice help the then world Champions Team Nokia to win the race, on the first occasion providing them purified water and on the second occasion during the night redirecting them to the correct track leading to an abseil point.

David Ogden's team International Adventurers were the first International team to Race in South Africa in the 2002 Africa Quest and contributed to the recognition of Seconds (support crew) as part of an adventure racing team.  Gerard Fusil invited him  to report his Adventure races in Reunion, Reunion d’ Aventures (2004,2005) and his latest adventure race creation, Bike and Run, Oman Adventure 2005 and 2006. Expedition adventure racing is about taking on nature and the course Director and reaching the finish, often competing teams have to work together and pool their knowledge such as in 1999 when the team David Ogden was in led six other teams out of the largest cave in the Philippines, when they could not find the exit, for which they later were awarded the Friendliest Team Award.

My thanks go to;
David Ogden first of all for putting the team together and coordinating the whole affair, without him we would have not taken part. I would also like to thank him for his commitment to us and his resolve during his, sometimes difficult times during the event. At the ripe old age of fifty-two he showed the kind of courage and determination that I can only aspire to. If a team ever needed a manager and if International Adventurers are to go on, which I hope we will, he would be my choice.
