Trekking: 3-5 Miles


Trekking includes jogging, walking, running, crawling, skipping, river crossing, scrambling….whatever you and your team decide you have to do to get from point A to point B, and C, D, E…. You choose your route and use a map and compass to get there faster and more efficiently than your opponents. Stay sharp!

This race will involve on and off-trail trekking.

Boating will be on flat water, so you won’t have to have any fancy boating skills. If you can put a paddle in the water and pull, you’ll be able to do it. You’ll still need to use your map for this section to find your checkpoints, so again stay sharp!  Noticing a theme, yet?

Biking: 10-25 Miles


No crazy technical bike skills required, but practicing is recommended. It will be on fun trails. You’ll also be using your map for this section…..sooooo…..Stay sharp!

Stay Sharp! Adventure Racing is the culmination of brains and brawn. The team with the SMARTEST race can win over the FASTEST RACERS by successfully implementing the best strategy. Succeed in staying sharp and YOU can become the VICTOR!
