Three Races in One Day!!!

The three races will all have the same Start/Finish point, at Bloomer Park, and will be “nested”. The 6-hour race will start first and finish last. The 2-hour race will start last and finish first. With races starting, finishing, and transitioning during the day, there will be activity at the Start/Finish area throughout the morning and afternoon. We’ll have music, food and drink for racers, and a “festival” atmosphere!

2-Hour Race:
So you have never done an adventure race before, and neither has your friend (or spouse, sibling, neighbor, boyfriend/girlfriend…)? This race is for you! At only 2 hours, it is ultra-short, the navigating is not too difficult, and there will be no paddle section. This race will be a great introduction to adventure racing for the newcomer! Experienced racers are discouraged from signing up for this race. Two family divisions only for the 2-hour race: Parent/Child (under 14), Parent/Child (14-17).

Event Cost:

Regular Registration: 8/19/17 to 9/9/17 = $45.00 per person

4-Hour Race:
Much like “Get Your Bearings”, this race is primarily for teams with little or no adventure racing experience, but we will not strictly enforce this. It will be a step up from the 2-hour race and will include a paddle section. If you couldn’t do “Get Your Bearings” in the Spring, this may be the right race for you!

6-Hour Race:
This race is for experienced racers. It will have some of the same elements as the shorter races, with more control points, more challenging navigation, longer biking distances, longer trekking distances, and, of course, a paddle section. While a 6-hour race is still considered to be a “sprint” adventure race, this race will have elements that will challenge even the experienced adventure racer.
