In 2014, Team XPD Holland embarked on an epic Adventure Racing journey. Once a mere step outside our comfort zone, it has now become an all-consuming passion! The flame was ignited after our unforgettable debut in the 'XPD Australia' Expedition race of 2015, and since then, the adventure racing virus has gripped us tight. Captivated by the raw suffering, unwavering perseverance, unbreakable teamwork and the unparalleled euphoria this incredible sport offers.
Now, with Raid Lowlands, we aim to share our passion, creating a challenging course that appeals to experienced racers worldwide, while also introducing newcomers to the sport and inspiring youth recruitment. Join us on this extraordinary adventure where limits are shattered, boundaries are transcended, and the adventure racing virus takes hold, redefining what is possible.
Together, let's embrace the thrill of Raid Lowlands and unite as adventurers, pushing our limits and unleashing our collective potential.
