In a perfect world, we’d all race with our best mates, all get on perfectly under pressure, have the same level of competency, same race goals and be available without injury or life commitments come race day. But for endless reasons this is not always the case and to be left at the start line without a full team is heartbreaking. So, networking and getting to know your local adventure racing community is a key component to your adventure racing career.
There are plenty of success stories of teams at both the elite and newbie level, coming together at the last minute and having an epic and memorable race that marks the beginning of long term close bonded friendships. Equally things can go pear-shaped as you are tested under conditions you’d struggle to stay composed under, even with those you love most. But with that comes experience and growth and we guarantee a better version of you will emerge out the other side.
So whether your mates abandoned you at the last minute, your team has been plagued by injury, that cousin finally decided to get married that weekend, your race goals now differ or the race director has inconsiderately picked your wife’s due date as his race date, then try these facebook networks and let us know how your journey unfolds…
One of Adventure 1’s key objectives is to remove barriers to entry into the sport. Building and supporting these social networks is one key way to achieve this, but if all else fails PLEASE contact us as Adventure 1 and we will help as best we can.
With enough interest, we will be setting up an A1 Series team mate finder portal, where those new to the sport can profile themselves, their goals and availability for races... For now though, lets give this little thing called Facebook a try.. seems a fairly successful online tool!
These online networks are also great places to meet like-minded individuals to train with.
They are always motivating each other, posting about training sessions and all the usual stuff we like to get obsessed about in sport.
