Abstract:Adventure racing is a multidisciplinary endurance test completed in teams. There seem to be many benefits in using an adventure race as part of a physical education curriculum. The races can also be linked to many national physical education standards. Adventure Racing C.O.R.E. uses the basic ideas of adventure racing and can be done at any school without the risk or expensive equipment that adventure racing often requires. Students compete in small teams to complete a predetermined course that is filled with obstacles along the way. By using teamwork, problem solving skills, and fitness abilities, teams work their way through the course to the finish line. Races can be made different every time, so students are always excited to complete new challenges.
