Ecuador comprises episodes 5 to 8 of Wild Racers series, that takes viewers on a journey into the ultimate feat of endurance within the Adventure Racing World Series. Episode one lands us on the shores of Quito, Ecuador. This majestic South American City is better known as the gateway to the Galapagos Islands. For this adventure our teams head inland to the high country where altitude and conditions are near life threatening.
The Teams – We get introduced to some of the most hard core adventure racers on the planet and see what drives and motivates them to compete in such a gruelling journey.
Exploring Quito & Acclimatisation– Teams are required to get acclimatised due to the extremes of altitude that they will experience in the coming days. As a challenge we set a course through the city, landmarks and outskirts of Quito. This is an enthralling prelude to the race ahead.
Race Registration and Mandatory Equipment – Teams finally meet to have all their essential equipment checked after experiencing some of the wilderness that they will encounter during the race. It is a crucial time as teams then receive the course maps for the next day’s start and busily work through logistics that may gain them an edge.
