Media release You can start registering for the 6th edition of adventure race Terra Incognita 2005 in Croatia. We provided brief news about the race 2005.
Terra Incognita is one of the toughest competition in the world. It relies heavily on teamwork, endurance and navigation as well as individual skills. Mixed gender teams of four race together for 400 km through a series of checkpoints to get to the finish line as quick as they can. To assist them they have mountain bikes, ropes, kayaks and personal equipment.
MORE... This event is designed to push the envelope of human endurance. Teams race 24 hours a day for five days - the clock never stops. The rules are quite simple. The team must get from the start to the finish by themselves and with no outside help. The pressure of racing must be dispersed through a solid team structure. If a person drops the entire team must halt. When an individual reaches total exhaustion resulting in complete body shutdown the entire team is condemned to the same fate. They must carry with them what they need to survive. During the race they receive no hot food or morale support, they must provide this themselves. If they dare they can sleep. Extreme situations cause emotions to develop in very quick sequences and even after five days of racing, success and failure almost touch.
