ITERA Expedition Race Scotland 2019
Race background – This event is the brainchild of 3 people, Tom Gibbs the man behind the 2014 ITERA, serial Adventure Racer, Paul Mcgreal one of the key people behind adventure sport in Scotland and James Thurlow has organised over 100 Adventure Sports events in the UK over the past 12 years with Open Adventure. The idea of showing off the country at its finest is what motivates the team behind the ITERA.
ITER – Latin for "journey".. and the "A" stood for little more than the ADVENTURE (where on that journey the outcomes are uncertain).
The teams will be racing through Scotland over five days in August 2019. The race will finish in Inverness – and the start – you will have to wait till August in 2019 to find that out..
With a distance of over 600km for the full event it will be a big challenge to all the top teams, but one that should be achievable for ALL. With shortcuts available (approx. 300km) for the novice or slower teams we hope everyone will enjoy the drama and excitement to be found in Scotland.
Good navigation is essential for the race, and you will be provided with detailed maps to follow. The race will include fell running, mountain biking, kayaking, orienteering and a few surprises taking you to those hidden gems. Attitude is everything, so be prepared for the unexpected.
