"We want to introduce as many outdoor enthusiasts as possible to the sport of adventure racing! We want to give them the beauty of suffering, the solidarity of persevering together and the pride of reaching the finish line. In short, we want to pass on to them the adventure racing virus!"






Besides the ARWS regional circuit over ±200km, Raid Lowlands wants to offer adventure racing on a smaller scale as well. A shorter distance, no sleepmonsters during the nights, but still the experience of an ARWS adventure race!


In 2024 the RL60 is part of the Dutch Adventure Race Series (DARS) competition. Teams of 2 compete in a great competition throughout the Netherlands and with several races throughout the year for the Dutch Championship. So during the RL60 there are also points to be earned for the DARS competition


During the race there are stages of different distances and all disciplines are raced, like trekking, mountain biking and kayaking. This year we are building the race to be challenging for the seasoned DARS racer and good preparation for the European Championships, but also defiant for the beginning and intermediate adventure racers! You and your team will be​ tested physically in the most beautiful surroundings of southern Limburg during RL60! 


Teams are allowed a maximum of 8 hours to complete the course, after 8 hours the race will be terminated. Certainly the experienced teams will finish the adventure race a bit faster, depending on the race you should think of 6 to 8 hours. The majority of teams will need the full 8 hours to complete the RL60 adventure race. 

Roughly you can assume the following distances per discipline:

  • 100% navigation

  • 60% mountain biking

  • 30% trekking

  • 10% paddling
