Terra Incognita expedition race starts

t-terra-incognitaThe race host 30 two member teams from 12 countries that will try to overcome non stop 5 days and nights over 350 km through very rugged terrain of Middle Adriatic, in Croatia.

The race will start in very unusual way: competitors will rappel attractive rock some 80 meters high! Than will continue to the mountain region of Croatia, descending toward the Adriatic sea. Still, it is summer in Croatia, specially on the coast, where the most of the race will take a place. But, believing or not – before few days on the race course on 1800 meters, the peak of Velebit mountain – was snowing! And from that part of the mountain you can easily see Adriatic sea – it is just 5 km air distance from the seaside – where the water is momentarily 26 degrees Celsius! Amazing!

For the race we have few very respected names as team Ad Natura with Elvir Suli? and Darija Bostijan?i?, that has won Terra Incognita 3 times and Team Salomon Suisse with Alain Berger and Jan Béguin, the team that won Raid Series in the past.

During the race you will paddle, overcome canyons, overswimm from islands to island. After the race you will have a feeling that you have gone through 5 different countries. Be prepared for temperatures that can arise above 30 Celsius on the islands during the day and below 5 degrees on the mountains during the night!

Also, you will experience harsh rock, tamed meadows, thick pine forests and rocky desert on island Pag – the only true desert on the Adriatic!

Also, important notice is that the race will not have a time limit – the slowest teams will not be disqualified, but will simple use the shortcuts that will be imposed on two destinations during the race! Our philosophy is to give to the competitors the best conditions in order to see as much as possible of this magic land!
