This week, Alyssa and Haley talk all things Adventure Racing with expert racer and 2x national champion Abby Perkiss. Abby tells us about the details of adventure racing including the necessary gear, why people decide to get into the sport, and the unique team and co-ed aspect. We hear about the Women of Adventure Racing campaign that provides scholarships for all-female teams and how barriers for women in adventure racing are being broken down. Plus, learn about Abby’s company Rootstock Racing and upcoming adventure races.
Alyssa runs through her 6-day race through the desert, and our hosts answer a mailbag question from brand new pro triathlete Brandi about what to expect before your first pro race.
