THE RACE

EXPEDICIÓN GUARANÍ

arwc 2020 paraguay

 
 

In Expedición Guaraní, participants will travel about 550km through the most beautiful places in the country. They will paddle through meandering rivers; although Paraguay does not have high mountains, they will reach some of its most imposing hills; they will have to ride several kilometers along paths of sand and mud and carry out ropes activities on rock walls and waterfalls. All this, in an environment full of lush vegetation, the last vestige of the Atlantic Forest, which was the second largest tropical rainforest in South America, and extends from Brazil (Pantanal area) through Paraguay and reaching Argentina.

 

Mixed teams of 4 members (and of the same nationality at least 3 of them) may aspire to the Adventure Racing World Championship. And as a novelty in a World Championship, there will be a shorter route from the beginning for those teams that want to experience the excitement of competing in an ARWC together with the best racers in the world, but who do not want to embark on a route as demanding as that of a world champs.

 

Teams that do not meet nationality requirements or that are not mixed, will also be welcome at Expedición Guaraní.


In Expedición Guaraní, we believe that having a good cartography is fundamental, since it is the basis of any adventure race. We will do an exhaustive fieldwork and cabinet work so that the ARWC 2020 maps have all the necessary information to trust them. It is something that we have been doing during the 5 years of life of EG and it is one of the most praised points by the racers.

Paraguay is country with very friendly people, so the excellent service to the adventurers will become the trademark of Expedición Guaraní.

LOCATION 

The competition center will be located in a hotel near the capital, Asunción. That will be the place where the pre-race tasks will be carried out, such as registration, equipment checking and technical skills, welcome dinner ... and also the closing ceremony.

It will be the official hotel of the race and there will be important offers for registered teams and their families.

Hours before the start of the race, we will travel by bus to the place of the start. The exact place of the start will not be revealed until that day.

The arrival will also be located far from Asunción. The teams and family will have place to stay (at their expense) from their arrival to the finish line and until the return by bus on Saturday 19th.

DISCIPLINeS

Expedición Guaraní is an adventure race in which different sports disciplines are combined. Mountain biking, trekking, kayaking and orienteering will be the main ones and the teams will have to demonstrate their skills in all of them.

CATEGORieS

 

The ARWC Expedición Guaraní will have a single official category, although it will have two coursess in order to offer this magnificent experience to the maximum number of racers possible.

ARWC - full course

Mixed teams consisting of four athletes will participate in the Full Course, that is, at least there must be one boy and one girl in each team. At least 3 of the 4 members must represent the same country (by residence or nationality).
It will not be necessary to have your own assistance, since it will be the organization that is responsible for transporting the equipment from transition to transition.
Participating teams will have the possibility to complete the full ARWC2020 course and will be eligible for official prizes.
If, during the race, a team fails to pass any of the cut offs it will pass to the Short Course.

ARWC - Short Course

Mixed teams consisting of four athletes will participate in the Short Course, that is, there must be at least one boy and one girl in each team. At least 3 of the 4 members must represent the same country (by residence or nationality).

The teams participating in the Short Course will share, with those of the Full Course, the essence of the ARWC2020 route, although their total distance will be somewhat lower, so that all teams can reach the same finish line. The Short Course teams will rank in the same official classification of the ARWC2020, but always behind the starting teams in Full Course.
