.STAGE RACES

Using the above definition of expedition racing, there are a number of big ticket adventure races around the world that do not fall under this banner.  These include multi-day stage races where teams compete every day, transferring between locations with a hotel or camp rest every night.  They still involve teams undertaking the traditional AR disciplines, however navigation often plays a less significant factor.  A few examples of these races, both past and present, include:
