The course consists of MTB, trekking, orienteering, kayak and rafting stages and special tasks: climbing, navigation and caving. The course requires very good navigation skills. Apart from basic map the racers will be provided with special maps – satellite, lidar, etc.
The predicted time of the winning team is about 100 hrs. Only very good phisically prepared teams with very skilled navigators will be able to complete the whole course. Having very good skills in mountain biking is necesarry as well. The slower teams will be forced to cut the course but all will experience the truly expedition race. Only 4-pers. mixed teams can participate in the race. The finish line (for the short course too) is located at the base of the race so the coming teams will be greeted with ovation and all the teams will create a big AR-family.
In 2023 Rajd Beskidy was the Demonstration Race and in 2024 will be the Qualifier Race.
