Here is a quick overview of the History of Adventure Racing, that I found just tag surfing this today. While it only really covers the big expedition events, it is a decent primmer.
Wikipedia has a much more extensive article about AR, and it even has a link to a race that I am the director of, the Gilmore Adventure Race. Speaking of Wiki, we all know not to trust it as a reliable source right? That is because anyone can go onto it and change info at any time…so reading from it is more like saying, “Someon told me……” Lots of good info in Wiki, just use other sources to verify it!
Also found this article called Why I love Adventure Racing, and You Should Too! This is a re-publication of an article that world class adventure racer and all around AR stud Ian Adamson wrote a while back.
