ADVENTURE RUNNING is the sport of running over a variety of surfaces (dirt, road, mountain, sand, snow), generally over long distances, where the racer has to overcome nature. Challenges include river crossing, scrambling , snow, extreme high or low temperatures, and high altitudes .

Whilst the origins of Adventure Running
involved a non-competitive personal challenge, Adventure Running
races are growing in number. The dontgetlost.ca Adventure Running
series in Ontario has been running for over a decade. It is the oldest and largest series of Adventure Running
races in North America.

Routes are often point-to-point and scenic, a long-distance trail , or canonical for example Land\'s End to John O\'Groats or London to Brighton .

Adventure running is less known than trail running or mountain running .

Adventure running is very similar to the running section from an adventure race ( which can include orienteering ).

Examples of adventure running events include:

* Great Wall Marathon * Big Five Marathon * Great Tibetan Marathon * Petra Marathon * Polar circle marathon * Rocksport Challenge * The Loco Go Big Or Go Home Challenge
