AR History Project...
Adventure Racing History Project
The AR History project will collect information about past AR events. Starting in the late 1970's , Adventure Racing had only a few major events until the sport began to blossom in 2000. We still have the chance to collect the complete history of Adventure Racing. In just a few days, we will provide the link to the AR History Project Site where we can all begin to fill out the history of Adventure racing.
Thanks for your support.
