The Douthat State Park Tenderfoot adventure race is designed for a beginner–a Tenderfoot–and will be simple enough to learn and enjoy, but challenging enough to be considered an adventure race. This adventure race at Douthat (pronounced “doubt-that,” according to Virginia State Parks, but this seems to be up for debate!), will have you paddling on the 50-acre lake, mountain biking on trails considered among the best mountain biking on the East Coast with its classic mix of rocky and fast singletrack, and trekking through some of Virginia’s best backcountry, with almost every trail leading to an amazing vista. Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of south central Virginia and surrounded by the George Washington National Forest, the park opened in 1936 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as one of the original state parks in Virginia, and its design played a large in park development across the United States. The Outside Family Vacation Guide named Douthat State Park one of the nation’s 10 best. Come discover it–and what you can do at–this super fun event!
