Exciting times are ahead for the adventure racing community in the UK, following the formation of the UKAR committee earlier this year. It’s aim is to create a central hub for all things UK adventure racing.
Here at Total XC, we are most excited about the UK rankings for both individuals and teams. For a team to qualify for a series score, a squad of up to 8 members will have their best rankings from a published list of races throughout the year added together to establish the top team in the country. As luck would have it, we are already entered into all the medium and long races (2 day, Swift and Sting) and one of the short races (April’s Open 5). So hopefully we can make a couple more short races, and pull out a few good performances, then well find out how we fare against not just teams we know well from up North, but right across the country.
So, let the championships commence.
