Calling all Youth Teams!

You represent the future of Adventure Racing!

As part of ARWS Europe, ITERA-Lite (July 26th-29th 2024), aims to support the growth of Adventure Racing. We would like to offer the opportunity to young racers (under 23) to come and participate in ITERA-Lite 2024 with a free Quad entry. Preference will be given to racers from GBR and IRE, though we’d be happy to see applications from overseas people as well.

ITERA-lite is a multisport endurance adventure race with an expected winning time of 48 hours (and final teams coming in around 60hours). It’s a great stepping stone towards full expedition length races (such as ITERA 2025 or other ARWS races around the world). See for more information, equipment lists, rules, schedules etc.

We know that it might be a big ask to pull together a full 4-person team, and so we want to be flexible on how this might work in practice. Possibilities include;

  • If you can put a 4-person team together, with all members being U23, get in touch.
  • If you are an individual (U23) interested in racing, get in touch. We will try and put you together with others and form a team.
  • We could look at including one older experienced racer within an otherwise U23 team.


To apply, write an application detailing your experience (we’re not looking for full formed AR experts, but need to know you’ll be safe), and explaining why you or your team should receive free entry and send it to the race staff via email at itera(at) Applications close on Friday April 19th.

Our friends at Questars are happy to also throw in a free entry to their 2-day stage race in the Peaks on 8-9 June as a preparation and training event for the team –

We hope to see you in Wales in July 2024.
