AR History Project...

AR-HX-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.

Last year 'And Loving It' scored first place in the Night 'O'. The actual event had clear skies and a full moon even though it had been cold and wet earlier in the day which may have kept a few people away.
