What is the Adventure Dash Duathlon?

It is a mini Adventure Race that racers will complete individually. Mostly off road, there will be 2 categories; Running and Mountain biking. Some extra adventure challenges can be integrated such as a rope course, a cargo net etc….

“These sprint races will be an opportunity for athletes who never competed in an Adventure Race to have a taste of adventure” says Serge Henkens the organizer. “It will also help everyone to prepare for longer competitions. It will definitely help in the development of this fantastic new sport in the kingdom”

As the distances are much shorter, this kind of races is accessible to everyone”

Fun Run for Kids

As AMA strives to promote the sports for youngsters in Thailand and in order to make it a festive event and involve the local communities we have decided to offer a fun run for children in parallel to the Adventure Dash Race.

The 4km fun run course will be a combination of Off Road and paved road running. Local schools are invited and children from 6 to 17 are welcome to participate. The entry is totally free and parents are welcome to join and run with their children.
