SMU Adrace 2013

Ok guys, here’s a great way to mix it up in training .. throw in an adventure race or three. The short ones (day-long) are great for a bit of fun, sporting camaraderie and an alternative workout too. Think of it as cross-training .. and your brain usually gets a bit of exercise too as some of the stages involve solving clues to get to the next section.

Check this one out .. the SMU Adrace 2013 – an overnight adventure race. Should be good for some fun and friendly competition, I’ve been told it’s very well organised so we’ve put our names down and we’ll see you at the start on 4th May! 🙂

  1. Hi, I saw that you are doing Tor Des Geants in 2013. Did you enter the lottery and got picked? My husband and I want to do Tor Des Geants in 2014 and is looking for someone or blog of someone who has done it or will be doing it to find out more info about the stage race. I know that in the lottery process "couples" are counted as one so that is great for us since we plan to do it together. We want to know more about logistics of where to stay and get to the race. We are from California, US. If not Tor Des Geants what other stage race in Europe would have spectacular views would you recommend?

  2. Hiya, yes .. first time lucky with the lottery 🙂 I'll try and update my blog regularly in the lead up to TDG 2013, hope that'll help! I'm just discovering all the logistics for myself at the moment, so will share when I know more.

    Also have a look at http://arcticglass.blogspot.sg/2012/09/onto-tor-des-geants.html

    Otherwise Ultra Trail de Mont Blanc is awesome (100 miles), or try the Ultra Trail South West (UTSW), a 100 miler by Endurancelife in the UK.

    Tor Des Geants is not a stage race though, it's a single stage and time management would be key in making it to the finish within the cut-off.

    For a European stage race, try Transalpine. I haven't done it yet, but working on it! http://www.transalpine-run.com/alps_cross_race.htm

  3. Thank you for all the info and will start researching more…Yeah, TDG is not a stage race I realized later… 🙂 This will be a tough one and crossing my fingers on the lottery!
    Looking forward to reading you blog leading up to TDG! Appreciate the response.
