Participants will face different obstacles like coconuts pool, palmera tree logs or rum barrels in a white sand beach terrain.

Race day 1 will take riders inside the green Dominican jungle. Different loops of a cross country format with a four-hour time bar. Race 2 will be the same track but inverse. 

After a weekend of hard enduro, riders can have fun at the prize giving party. A live music party on the beach to say good bye to The Original Caribbean Race.
