WHAT IS TEAR 5HRS WINTER SERIES?
TEAR stands for TOTAL EXPERIENCE ADVENTURE RACE
The WINTER SERIES is taking place on Saturday 29th of February 2020.
The race involves navigation (the ability to read a map), trail running, mountain biking, kayaking and some sort of special task.
You must have a partner as you can only race as a team of two.
The distance in total over the three disciplines is approximately 40km approximately 5 hours long. It is a scored event.
This is an event for beginners and elite racers alike.
This event is good for first time adventure racers who may not have all the disciplines nailed yet and for those who really want to push themselves hard!
It is a great way to break in to adventure racing as the race is relatively short and the stages involve loops meaning there will be escape routes at all times along the way.
Given the nature of the race some navigation experience would be expected and a reasonable level of fitness.
If you ever wanted to try an open mountain event, this is the one for you. It’s early in the year to give you a good kick start but at the same time not to take it too seriously.
The general vibe at this event is good natured and welcoming.
It is a great way to open the door to trail running, mountain biking, kayaking and orienteering.
Kayaks, paddles and buoyancy aids will be provided and mountain bikes and maps are available to rent.
Entries are 150 Euro per team, per event. Booking on line using button below.
Saturday 29th February 2020 – 5 hours – 10 am to 3pm from the Avon – cost €150 per team includes a hot meal afterwards.
You’ll feel challenged for sure, but you’ll have a great time doing it …come feel that finish line feeling.
