Its time to recognise the incredible human strength to survive these races.  Membership levels encourage and reward you for conquering various race lengths from the heart stopping pace of the 24 hour races through to epic expedition length races.


Did you get a heartbreaking DNF, an unranked or competed in a half course? Conquering your first race is just around the corner. For now welcome to the A1 Guest Club where you have an online profile and are part of the A1 community.


Let’s be clear up front, Adventure 1 subscribes to team rankings as the official means of recognising performance in the sport of adventure racing.

BUT why not have some fun in the background for debate, discussion and banter.  So yes, we understand some faster athletes race in slower teams and slower athletes race in faster teams, and a top athlete may get a DNF due to a bike failure or a slow member might get towed more than another and aunt Mary packed the wrong energy biscuit for you in race 3…

Life isn’t always fair and s**t happens… so just as in life, the best medicine to deal with the ups and downs is to have a bit of fun… so here are the rules for earning your A1 ranking points…



  • 1 The overall teams points and ranking system ensures teams are recognised for their efforts in staying together, even if they can’t field a team in their chosen category. Premier Mixed category ranking remains the prestigious category to determine the Adventure 1 Series Champion.
  • 2 Half course race formats must be >24 hours in order to qualify for Series points (GeoQuest half for example).
  • 3 Two-person race formats must be > 24 hours to be recognised for A1 Club Points and membership (WildsideAR17).

  • Note Whilst members of two-person format teams get A1 Club Individual profiles and points, their team is not officially recognised in the Adventure 1 Series.
