Check out this really good article by Mark. Is Obstacle Racing the Death of AR?
I love AR. I do it because it caters to my need of real adventure, teamwork, challenges & it takes me to beautiful places! The above question has crossed my mind seeing the recent popularity of Obstacle races and confusion the event names/brand is creating !
I am a triathlete as well but I do it purely because of the challenge it offers and been part of a paddling teams for couple years as it provides opportunity to enjoy teamwork - but above question never crossed my mind in those sports!
So why AR is not as popular as it can be considering it offers all the above and lot more!
- not enough interest in the public?
- not enough awareness or promotion/branding?
- high requirement in terms of skills & gears to get into the sport?
- lack of suitable locations to host good event?
I was just curious to see what Attackpoint AR community feels about this and may be share some thoughts & ideas around that we can use to promote our awesome sport of AR.
