Off The Grid Adventure Race, Grande Prairie, AB: Adventure Racing (also called Expedition Racing) is a combination of two or more endurance disciplines, most often including orienteering and/or navigation, on and off-trail running/trekking, mountain biking and paddling. An expedition event can span ten days or more while sprints can be completed in a matter of hours. There is typically no suspension of the clock during races, irrespective of length; elapsed competition time runs concurrently with real time, and competitors must choose if or when to rest.

Adventure racing historically required teams to be of a specified size and to include both men and women, but many races no longer restrict team size and include single-sex divisions. Some also include age-based categories.
