Adventure racing is a dynamic and growing sport in Ireland with over 10,000 AR enthusiasts taking part in solo and team races in Ireland in 2019.

ARI aims to bring the adventure racing community on the island of Ireland together and to work collectively to develop this exciting sport.

ARI aims to promote and develop both solo and team based adventure-racing formats including expedition type races as seen recently on the “World’s Toughest Race” on Amazon Prime.

ARI will promote standards and good practice for the sport, will seek to expand a calendar of AR races, provide training opportunities for members and support club development.

ARI will coordinate the National Adventure Race Series in conjunction with race organisers and sponsors from 2021.

ARI aims to offer members access to discounts to races, events and outdoor retail outlets.

ARI also hopes to develop training opportunities for members to help progression in the sport.

The first year’s membership fee will cover members to the end of 2021 and will be between €25 and €35 (to be decided). All new members will receive a welcoming gift and membership card.
