team of 2
Team of 4
The R-Race is a great adventure to share as a team of 2 or 4 and a time of sharing and cohesion between runners.
You not feel the diffculty in the same way knowing that you are running for a team and the passage of relay between the runners will be a strong moment where emotion, sharing and excitement will mix.
Time limits are calculated so that a runner with an ITRA score of 400 points is finisher. If you have a lower ITRA rating, you can start the race but it is likely that you will not be fast enough to pass the checkpoints within the time limit.
