        Adventure Races are multi-sport events, which can include a variety of outdoor activities such as climbing, canoeing, trail and fell running, orienteering,night navigation and mountain biking.
        Approach to Walna Scar Road, Coniston.
ACE Races, 1999.

Some events are timed from start to finish, with a set route to follow and dedicated transition areas, similar in format to a triathlon.
Other events have an orienteering basis allowing competitors a set time for each stage, during which they try to visit as many controls as possible.
Points will be deducted for lateness after each stage.

  The ACE Race Series has a base camp area where competitors return to between stages, and are allowed a short amount of time to prepare for the next stage.
Races such as The Western Isles Challenge have a clear objective some distance away from the start.
Single day events will usualy start and finish at the same location.
