Apart from the flagship 600KM+ expedition-length adventure race in Altay, a experiential version adventure race is also open for registration. The :Open Team” or “公开组” is aiming to bring the authentic experience of ARWS, while make its entry much easier and assessable for those who want a taste of the true adventure!
The course would be about 120KM including basic disciplines such as trekking, kayaking and mountain biking. Athletes must participant in a 4-person mixed-gender team, move forward together, look for the checkpoints, and go nonstop until reaching the finish line.
Same as the original Altay Expedition race, the course will not disclose until 24 hours before the race. While, since the race is set for people who want to experience what AR is like, the GPS device and mobile phones are allowed during the race.
