Huairasinchi World Adventure Race in Ecuador

Wednesday, 12 November 2014 00:00

Top adventure sports teams from around the world are competing in Ecuador this week as the country proudly hosts the Huairasinchi Adventure Racing World Championship 2014.

Each of the 50 international teams taking part consists of a mixed group of 4 people. They are racing across a range of challenging terrains which Ecuador offers; they will be hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing and more.

Teams will cover over 700km in 10 days racing in altitudes ranging from almost 4500m to down to sea level. Of course they will also get to cross the Equator line at 0⁰.

As well as teams from Ecuador and other South American countries, participants have come from as far afield as the USA, Spain, UK and New Zealand.

The race route takes full advantage of the varied regions of Ecuador’s mainland, and includes stages in the Andean highlands, the Amazon basin, the cloud forest and is due to finish down on the Pacific coastline. Ecuador is proving to be a stunningly beautiful back drop for this extreme race, as well as offering many physical challenges along the way for the participants.

The race is being organised locally by Proyecto Aventura and Huairasinchi and is sponsored by Ecuador's top outdoor clothing and adventure store - Explorer.

Santiago Lopez from Proyecto Aventura commented “Our philosophy is to make it tough, but not to punish the teams. We want them to enjoy the entire route and to get to the most beautiful places. They should see the highlights of Ecuador and get to know the country from inside. When things are hard they must feel their efforts are well rewarded. They should leave with unforgettable memories and knowing they have discovered the soul of our country.”

Original Ecuador offers a less strenuous Ecuador Highlights Tour for those who would like to discover the country at an altogether slower pace.
