General Information


After 11 years organizing adventure races in the northwest of Spain, Raid Gallaecia open the doors to the big adventure in Galicia. An ARWS event (Adventure Race World Series) come back to Spain.

The raids are multidisciplinary races where you compete in teams that have to demonstrate their capacities for resistance, orientation and abilities to overcome different tests. Riders must complete the sections of the raid visiting unknown control points set by the organization in the shortest possible time, with the only help of a map and a compass and without outside assistance except in the designated points for it.


The chosen area for this occasion is Pontevedra and its “Rías Baixas”. An incredible paradise with its coastline, mountains and estuaries where both its people and its excellent cuisine will host an full of adventure and navigation event.

From the organization team, we have been working to offer a special race for lovers of the great adventures and expeditions, with fantastic routes in the most spectacular places and with a balance between hardness and technicality that allows us to create a surprising raid for the more experienced raiders and a beautiful challenge to those who are not.

Raid Gallaecia have a lot of very good references from international adventure racers from United Kingdom, New Zealand, Finland, Portugal or France and all zones of Spain.
