Wil Smith and I are working together to design and host our first adventure race. We are both former North American orienteering champions and live in Nobel (same street actually) Ontario on the door step of Canadian Shield wilderness made famous by the Wilderness Traverse adventure race.
Wil has many years of experience designing XTERRA race courses and I have designed and organized many of DontGetLost's popular adventure running Raid series.
Together we have designed an adventure race format that, we believe, removes several of the barriers to entry to AR while still offering a very challenging race course for the very best teams.
Next year's race was tested by Wil and I this fall (around the same date we had originally chosen for this year's race before cancellation) and the course is pretty darn awesome.
