The Auenland Adventure Race ends
After 19 years, we are stopping with the Auenland Adventure Race. Originally the race started in 2002 as an orienteering training race for the Dutch CIOR Military Pentathlon Team. Campingplatz Dammhammer, the predecessor of Campingplatz Auenland, had just been taken over by Axel from his aunt and hosted this training race. The pentathlon team consisted of Dutch reserve officers who trained for the yearly World Championship. On these weekends the focus was on orienteering. The thought was that it couldn’t be hard enough. At first we did not cycle, everything was running and a bit of canoeing. Later on we added the biking part for fun, and put in some extras. The race got longer, tougher, more complicated & exciting every year. The training took place at Pentecost weekend and everybody brought the whole family with them. Recipe for the weekend: Relaxing, chiling and family stuff on Saturday, the race on Sunday and back home on Monday. It was a big success. Super cozy and fun for everyone.
