ADVENTURE CONCEPT

  • THE AIM OF THE DOUBLE MOON ADVENTURE IS TO PREPARE TEAMS FOR EXPEDITION RACING WHERE RACING AT NIGHT AND TEAM DYNAMICS IS CRITICAL FOR A SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME.

  • Adventure racing is a multi-discipline endurance sport where competitors compete in teams, navigating from control point to control point in a number of disciplines.

  • Disciplines include: mountain biking, trekking, kayaking and orienteering. Teams are expected to navigate using a map and landmarks. Teams must be able to operate in harsh remote environments in all weather conditions.

  • Teams travels through the night, they can decide if, when and where to rest. The first team to complete all the adventure legs visiting all control points, will be declared the winner.

  • Teams are required to complete the entire adventure distance together (always within hearing and visual distance of each other), helping and assisting each other.

  • Teamwork and team dynamics are essential. A detailed understanding of your teammates and your own capabilities is essential.

  • Teams can not supply and use their own boxes

  • The organisers will move these boxes to various points on the course.

  • The use of boxes make this a true un-supported expedition and making it easier for teams to compete on an even playing field

  • Teams will receive waterproof gear boxes at the start to pack gear and food in.

  • Boxes will be available at designated transition areas somewhere on route. Information on these areas will be in the adventure book. 

  • Each team must have 50 long cable ties. Best is to tape them to inside of lid of each box for easy access.
