Weather will never stop the true adventurer from going off-road. The kind of races we love involves more than turning left every lap. Here are three off-road races to satisfy your craving for extreme terrain competitions.
Hosted in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from January 2 to the 14, 2017, the Dakar Rally is a test of man and marine against pitfalls. Over a 10,000 kilometer route will cover some of the most inhospitable terrain on Earth with nosebleed-inducing altitudes and scorching temperatures.
From January to February 2017, four races will run during the crazy and unpredictable weather in Memphis, TN. Each race runs through different parks starting at a distance of 3000 kilometers to 10,000 kilometers. If you’re up to the task, registration lasts until the night before each race.
This is the third year for the Winter 4x4 Jamboree in southern Utah and has been extended a day going from January 19 to the 21. All trails are within a two-hour drive from the event central venue at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Each trail will be limited to group size to make sure participants have an enjoyable experience. Additional activities include a rodeo, vendor fiesta, evening and a raffle.
Whether you’re looking to compete or just enjoy watching, these off-road races in 2017 will make you forget about the weather outside.
