Wildside is about the journey - discovering that adventure is everywhere. It is about challenging competitors, taking them to new places and out of their comfort zone. Wildside is also about showcasing a region - providing an opportunity to connect people with places and communities.
This is not just a race or an adventure - this is an experience - the kind of experience you will tell your friends, colleagues, family about. Not that any one who hasn't done Wildside will understand - but you will try.
Wildside will take racers to wild places. Teams will navigate through spaces and places rarely visited. They will encounter challenges as they traverse demanding landscapes in all weather conditions, day and night. This is adventure racing - teams need to be self-sufficient, resilient and ready for anything. They will pack resources which will be moved around the course and carry equipment, food and first aid supplies with them. The planning and strategy that goes along with this style of racing is a skill within itself.
