Wild Racers Costa Rica brings elite competitors from around the world to race day and night covering a 820k course. Athletes will travel from the southeast of Panama, over the highest mountain of Chirripo towards the village of Tortuguero (Land of the Turtles) then travel to the Nicaraguan border in the north for the long haul and to the finish at Puerto Viejo Sarapiqui.
Set in this exotic locale, athletes will extreme water kayak, mountain bike, abseil and wilderness trek, pushing themselves to the ultimate limits of human endurance. All will have to combat the physical and psychological challenge, having no reference point or no support from the outside world to guide them.
In the spirit of a true expedition teams are truly ‘unsupported’, forgoing the comfort and assistance of support crew. Athletes must carefully plan all their equipment and sustenance before the race or face life threatening situations. Which team will win the race?
