The 20th annual Grenoble Institute of Technology Adventure Race will take place from May 8–10, offering up three days of outdoor thrills instead of the usual two. A total of 30 mixed-gender teams (150 participants) will hit the trails in Savoie and Chartreuse for a grueling 160 km route with an elevation gain of 5,500 meters. Disciplines will include orienteering, mountain biking, trail running, target shooting, climbing, and canoeing—plus a few surprises. An adaptive circuit is available to teams with disabled members.
One big innovation this year will be the ranking system, based on points instead of time. The new system is intended to be more motivating for the participants and easier to manage for the 50-student organizing committee.
