    Great to hear Erik talk about the awesome world that is adventure racing. For those who are now fired up to try an adventure race, I recommend heading to, as it contains the full list of adventure races in North America. Not that we don’t all want to go on massive excursions to other countries, but if you’re looking for a local race, this is the easiest way to find it.
