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.

What a surprize!!!

Soooooo happy about our 1st place as team Addicted2Adventure (A2A) in the mixed pairs team category and 2nd overall in yesterday's EXP Africa Africa 60km Adventure Race in the Vaaldam area.

Leg 1: 14kms trail running
Leg 2: 10kms mountain biking
Leg 3: 11kms kayaking
Leg 4: 26kms mountain biking

My sole&soul mate Thinus Matthysen was spot on with the navigation, we streamlined through all the transitions and I just gave it my all with my current limited fitness (yes, Thinus had to tow me at some spots, what wil I do without him).

We had great competition and I wanna congratulate the teams, 2nd place AdventureLife SA & 3rd place Adventure Spirit who shared the podium with us - you guys rock!!!

Oh how good it is to be able to race again.

PS: I missed my baby Élon sooo much while racing 💕
