Subaru Adventure Racing Series

The Subaru Adventure Racing Series was the first adventure race series in Canada. It was developed for Subaru Canada, who were a national television sponsor for the Eco-Challenge (10 day extreme race), and wanted a national grassroots event that could be linked with their dealers across the country. The series included 5-8 hour Enduro and 24-36 hour Overnight adventure races.
