RACE DAY: Saturday, December 7th, 2019

What is Adventure Racing? A multi-sport, off-road, team event with no marked course. Teams must use a map and compass to navigate their way through a series of checkpoints on mountain bikes, in canoes, and or on foot to reach the finish line.

How long is the race? Expect to cover 5-10 miles paddling, 15-20 miles biking, and 5-10 miles on foot. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of this page for more information.

Race Location: That's a secret! Part of the appeal of adventure racing is charging into the unknown on race day. A course overview will be available closer to race time to help you plan your gear and food. Plan on 4-8 hours of continuous movement through the woods, rivers, and roads of southwestern St. Louis County
