RACE DETAILS

 “Adventure Racing is a true test of the human condition and spirit and one of few extreme sports that showcases the extraordinary power of teamwork.” Says Mike Clarke

Lilyfontein School has been hosting the annual Adventure Race since 2000.  The Lilyfontein AR sums up Lilyfontein’s values and ethos that we strive to achieve. Developing young learners to work in teams, identify strengths, understand weaknesses, problem solve, grow grit, endurance, leadership and resilience in a fun, adventurous environment. 

Our AR caters for all ages and fitness levels. Adventure Racing is a fast growing sport that incorporates navigational, mental and physical challenges. Teams of 4, with at least 1 member of the opposite gender or Teams of 2, with at least 1 member being an adult, compete in various categories with a unique distance and set of obstacles to complete. 

Winning in an adventure race requires more than just speed and fitness. The race requires the team to navigate through several activities to reach specific check points along the way.  This year’s AR will focus on fun and involvement  –  any team can be made up with learners for different schools, family members or friends.  The purpose is to find your tribe and have fun in the sport of Adventure Racing.
