Adventure Races

Adventure Racing is a fun concept of combining the following sport disciplines: mountain biking, running/trekking, kayaking and navigation. In this shorter version of adventure racing, you only need to be able to read a Google Map to orienteer yourself from point to point. Kinetic Events and Addicted2Adventure.co.za has joined hands when it comes to the organisation of the 25km Adventure Races in South Africa which has been organised by the former for many years. Beginners, more advanced athletes and the hard core racers out there are all welcome! Who's joining us?

A2A Co-Founder Jolene, says:

Thinus and myself are absolutely ADDICTED2ADVENTURE! How and why did we start Addicted2Adventure? Every time when we told a friend/colleague/ acquaintance about an adventurous outing we enjoyed over a weekend (or they just saw our pics on Facebook), their response would be “you always do such awesome/ exciting/ outdoorsy events! I would love to do that as well”. When I ask them why they don’t…their response would be: “I don’t want to go alone, I don’t know what to do, I don’t enjoy organising things, I don’t know where to start!”
Sooo… Addicted2Adventure was born in Jan 2012!

Thinus, A2A Co-Founder, adds:

Addicted2Adventure (A2A) loads adventurous happenings and trips (that we will mostly attend ourselves) on our website … anybody who wants to experience any sort of adventure are welcome to join us – as easy as that! We do all the research (venues, prices, directions, dates, price negotiations etc.) on your behalf. You decide whether you want to join us or not – without paying any membership fee! We love to meet new (adventurous) people, go to new (adventurous) places and experience new (adventurous) things.
