ARC Adventure Race: Free School Team Entry

ARC Adventure Race: Free School Team Entry

Osprey has teamed up with ARC Adventure Race to offer a free school team entry into the Raiders of the Last Arc event.

To celebrate the 20th year, ARC organisers are introducing the new format of adventure racing called the “Adventure Rogaine”. This year’s race will involve a series of stages, including trekking, mountain biking and kayaking/water-based activity. Each stage will be a rogaine in it’s own right with a time limit and a number of point scoring checkpoints. There will also be the famous ARC Mystery activities.

Osprey Packs has been a proud sponsor for a number of years and this year is offering a free entry to a school team. There is just one catch – your team will need to come up with an adventure story.

The story must have no more then 750 words and must be a true story. We don’t mind a touch of artistic licence and we do enjoy a little bit of humour. Your stories will be judged by one of the marketing team at Osprey Packs and one of the ARC event organisers.

The winning story will win a free entry for a team of 4 into the ARC Adventure Race, either the 16 Hours school challenge or the 8 hour race. Entries close 31st October 2019.

There will also be a prize of Osprey Tempest/Talon packs for the 2nd best story and some ARC vouchers worth a total of $200 for third place.

You may be asked to read your story out at the ARC Race briefing.

Please submit your stories, details of your team, your race of preference and contact details by email to

Terms & Conditions: Prizes cannot be exchanged for cash. Judges decision will be final. Winners will be notified directly, and announced on social media.
