Eighteen teams with members from 13 nations will compete in the race. Each team is made up of three men and one woman and will have only a map and a compass to guide them across the country. According to Miguel Andrades, the co-founder of Aventuras de Sarapiqui, one of the race organizers, six of the teams are composed of all Costa Ricans.

“Two of the Costa Rican teams are very, very strong, and should have a good chance to win it,” Andrades said. “All the teams in the competition are at a very high level. This race has attracted the best of the best.”

The winner of the Costa Rican Adventure Race will qualify for the 8th Adventure Race World Championship, which will be held in Spain from Sept. 30 to Oct. 9. Over 50 international teams are expected to compete for the World Championship.

The Costa Rican Adventure Race is being hosted by the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT). According to Tourism Minister Carlos Benavides, Costa Rica hopes to host the Adventure Race World Championship in 2013.
