Carpathian Adventure is a classic, 3-day adventure race meant to bring        people together to be challenged in numerous outdoor disciplines and enjoy the natural beauty and wilderness of Romania.

We all love adventure and challenge!

We often ask ourselves: What are our own limits? What are we capable of? How could we manage in extreme conditions?

Carpathian Adventure, the race organised by Outward Bound Romania and Perpetuum Mobile is about these feelings.

Adventure racing is not so much a physical undertaking – although it certainly takes your lungs, legs and ligaments to their limits – as it is a mental, emotional and even spiritual battle.

It is about the team.

It is about pushing yourself beyond your comfort-zone. It is about eliminating selfishness in order to work for the benefit of the team. It is about doing things right and maintaining your strength together. Those who finish the race are masters of the following disciplines: backpacking, mountain biking, abseiling, caving, navigation, and river craft.
