As we expand our A1 Series portfolio in 2022 and beyond, we will provide further details about prizes for our National Series', World Cup, World Cup Finals, and Adventure Racing World Championships.
Common across all A1 Series is that A1 teams must be mixed-gender teams and have accrued the most points to be crowned Champions. These teams will enter into the sport’s history pages and inspire future generations of adventure racing athletes. While money will never be at the heart of Adventure 1, we expect sizable prizes will be made available as media interest grows and spectators and sponsors are attracted to the A1 Series.
The A1 Series will not just focus on the elite teams but also those teams that embody the spirit of the sport. You and your team will not only have an official A1 National and A1 World Adventure Racing ranking for the first time, but as A1 Club members, you will be in the running for additional awards and recognition.
In addition to bragging rights for being the top Adventure Racing team in Australia or South Africa, as the champion team, you gain free entry at the world's biggest and best adventure race GODZone, in New Zealand thanks to our major prize partner 100% Pure Racing - LEGENDS!!!
Adventure 1 is very excited to introduce the A1 Club Awards. This recognises the individual athletes in the sport and has something for everyone from the elite to newbie.
Watch in time as wearing one of these shirts becomes synonymous with conquering the ultimate in human endurance sports...
Are you chasing the top spot this year with your team mates, or will your A1 campaign over time make you the most prolific racer in your country? Or do you just want to have some fun and banter by beating your mates?
What ever floats your boat, you now have an individual adventure racing ranking for the first time.
For athletes who represent the spirit, heart and soul of adventure racing, that show extraordinary strength and commitment to the series whilst knowing they are unlikely to ever stand on the podium.
Adventure 1 looks forward to giving you the recognition you deserve.
The infamous but most important 4th leg of adventure racing is navigation by compass... day and night... no fancy GPS, just old school adventure to get you from the start line to the finish line....every team chooses their own path... With that can come moments of pure and utter frustration!!!
Mmm the emotions that come with getting lost…really lost. For some, an excuse for a good laugh and a unique sightseeing experience, but for others it may cost a heartbreaking podium finish. Emotions can run high and the serene sounds of birds and waterfalls are replaced with the less peaceful sounds of #$%@#%##.
So for our enjoyment learning experience, we will be voting on the worst most memorable checkpoint of the season…. And with that comes the honour of the Marco Polo Award thanks the safety trackers each team carries.
