About the Event

Namaskara Everyone,

We’re super excited to host MAHE Adventure Race FIRST Adventure Racing in association with MAHE. We are glad to welcome MAHE on board. The FIRST university in the Country to support Adventure Racing.  

Adventure Racing is a multi-sport concept of combining the following sport disciplines: Mountain Biking, Trail Running/Trekking, Kayaking, and Orienteering (Navigation). If you are a Beginner or an elite athlete you are all welcome! Before you read further to know what is Adventure Racing. 

By now we all really understand that adventure racers like to explore Mother Nature by going to places where others haven’t been before, to feel tough by taking on endurance distances either by MTB, on foot, or on a kayak … and to take on the world by facing the hard and sometimes unforgiving elements of the weather, whether it’s a scorching hot day, rain pouring down hard or a gusty wind that’s testing your guts and spirit all you can expect in one race which we love so much. And to top it all off, the orienteering part of it just put adventure racers in another league. Excited to experience ?

Adventure Racing Tips for the experienced and newbies:

  • Equipment:  Please do not take the compulsory list lightly, the weather can change in      minutes which will result in you needing some items unexpectedly
  • Gearbox packing: To avoid a mess in your box we highly recommend each person to put all his extra gear and clothing in his own bag i.e.: a string bag, a material/plastic shopping bag, etc. Always prepare for the worst and think about being wet, cold, hungry, or sunburnt. Add a few more comfort items like another dry shirt, fleece, gloves, buff, hat, head torch, jacket, wipes, and an extra space blanket.
  • Attention to detail is crucial. The whole team must study the racebook, rules, what you can do and what you can’t do. When things get unclear or “pear-shaped” during the race the navigator and/or decision-maker has more “minds” that can remember the instructions. Last resort: take out the racebook and read again.
  • The fastest way to cross a water section is just to unclip your backpack from your waist and swim. No undressing or removal of shoes. You can blow up your bladder and that will assist your backpack for better buoyancy. If you have a proper waterproof bag your clothing or compulsory gear won’t get wet. That brings us back to the equipment.
  • Carry your weakest persons’ backpack when he/she takes the strain. When it’s a short, fast trekking leg, you can take all the equipment or extra  things out of your slowest persons’ backpack and let them only carry water.
  • What  is teamwork? It means you need to be in contact with your slowest person at all times. It does not help if you cycle 100m in front of your team. You should then go back and take the weakest persons’ backpack or push/tow      that person. The same applies to a trekking leg. If you feel so much stronger at that given moment you must ask to assist, help the navigator to look for the checkpoints, or just plainly stay with your team and speak about the beautiful day and encourage with positive words.
  • Golden rule: if you can’t say something positive then keep your mouth SHUT. If you can’t assist with the navigation, then keep your thoughts to yourself. If the navigator made a mistake your duty is to say: Don’t worry it's ok, how can I help you to get to the next point or how can we recover. Remember mistakes will happen, it’s about how fast can you fix it and move forward.
  • Get racing fit. Adventure Racing is a skill like all other sports. You need to race to stay racing fit. In a race, you’re under pressure and you will face new challenges. It’s in those moments that you discover more about  yourself and how you handle situations. The more you do it the more it becomes easier and you will adapt easier to each situation and challenge.
  • We all are going to have a low moment at some stage. Assist each other through those times and getting that person over the line is the ultimate reward. This is a sport that will humble you and your day will come to be the weakest person. If it’s your “off day” speak up and before you hit the wall and share with your team that you are pushing too hard. This is NOT the sport for EGO. Leave that at home.
  • Have an attitude of gratitude that you are able to participate in this amazing, challenging, rough, and outdoor sport.


  • At least one member of the team must be capable of navigating with the maps provided during the day and night. (Do attend NthAventure workshops which will be hosted in MAHE)
  • The teams must be able to describe what their team would do if it becomes lost.
  • At least one member of the team should have experience in basic First Aid.
  • All team members must be suitably competent in all disciplines included in the event as specified by the race organizer and be able to complete the event without any assistance from any person other than their own team members.
