Adventure & Extreme Sports
Adventure Sports - Endurance Races
To be considered an adventure event, races need to be over the marathon distance or greater, and usually involve extreme terrain. I have separated the events into three categories, based on distance covered and the whether it is a solely runnign event or if the event involves other modalities.
Running Events - Marathon Distance — a list of marathons and other races of similar distances from around the world.
Running Events - Ultra-Marathons — a list of ultra endurance running events from around the world.
- Extreme Endurance Events — long distance endurance events involving more than just running.
- the unusual competition of Tough Mudder
- see also Orienteering and the related endurance team sport of Rogaining - the thinking person's sports, requiring both navigation skills and endurance.
