HEARTBREAKER AR (2019)

Beautiful Gilchrist county and Hart Springs, Florida will be the location for the 2019 Heartbreaker Adventure Race.

Hart Spring ( http://hartsprings.com/ ) will be the start and finish location, but you can be sure race director Craig Sheriff has plenty of challenges in store for racers with this location on the incredible Suwannee River. Otter Springs, Fanning Springs, Wannee Conservation area  are all just a stone’s throw away from the start.

Primitive tent camping is included with the race, 4 people per site.  RV camping is available at $24 per night, plus tax, up to 4 people. Only two vehicles per site are allowed, for both RV and tent sites.

All the races will feature lagoons and springs.  The Elite Race will be a modified expedition style race, with about every type of biking available here;  new trails, some great single and double track, dirt and paved roads, even some sugar sand and a bit of hike-a-bike!

The Sport Race will also be a modified expedition style race, biking to the Boat TA, then returning to the Main TA via boat.  Ending with a Foot section that contains a bunch of controls, lots of options.

The Family Race will be mostly contained within Hart Springs Park.  Teams will have about 2 miles on bike, paved trails and double track, about 1.5 miles on boat, and ending with about a mile on foot.

All the races will end with a “refreshing” final CP, food, and an awards ceremony.

THE TURKEY BURN AR (2018)

Returning for its 16th year, The Turkey Burn Adventure Race will be continuing its run as one of the longest running adventure races in Florida.

Race director Dave Brault, who has been the race’s course designer since it’s inception in 2003, has some amazing fun surprises in store for all teams! Dave’s course have offered some of the most challenging strategy, navigation, and terrain for elite racers. They have also offered some of the most fun you can have for sport and family racers.

Family and Sport racers should also be prepared for an incredibly good time and  race. Camp Joy near Rock Springs Run and Kelly Park offers the perfect terrain for adventure racing of all levels. The spring fed waters are crystal clear and beautiful, the terrain offers off-road biking appropriate for all levels of bike from family to sport level. The area has wonderful trails and is well-mapped. Family racers – this is a perfect spot for the entire family and a great race to bring all the kids and race with them. We expect beautiful weather at this time of year – so this is the best of everything that you can expect.

The Family and 4 Hour Challenge are both GPS legal. We understand that not everyone is comfortable with the navigation involved in an adventure race, so FLX will allow GPS units or phones to be used in these two events. These two events are designed to involve those that enjoy being outdoors with minimal navigation required (will mostly be on trails). Our hope is that combining the GPS with the regular maps will make teams more comfortable with navigation and they will move up to the regular, non-GPS, races later on.

Register NOW and start getting ready for an incredible experience.

Douthat Tenderfoot

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!

Douthat Strong

The Douthat Strong 8-hour adventure race is designed for a a full day of racing in one of Virginia’s first and finest state parks! Douthat (pronounced “doubt-that,” according to Virginia State Parks, but this seems to be up for debate!) Strong 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.

The Edge Adventure Race

The Edge Adventure Race is a great race for those new to the sport of adventure racing, as well as for those seasoned athletes looking for a challenge. We’ll give you either 3 or 6 hours to complete the fun filled course on foot, boat and mountain bike!
Adventure racing is a fun sport that will have you running, paddling, biking, and thinking (yes your brain and team work are a must!). If you’re tired of the “same old – same old” and want to add some creative sport to your life – then this one is for you!

Get ready to grab a friend or two, and come on out for a day of outdoor adventure and team work. Want to try the race alone? No problem – we offer a solo division as well.

How it works: On the morning of the event participants will be given a race map with the checkpoints pre-plotted on the maps. A fun opening activity will determine if your team will travel on foot, boat, or mountain bike first. You must visit every checkpoint together as a team, and you have either 3 or 6 hours to get to as many of these points as possible. The most points collected, and fastest time determines the winner.

The paddling will be in either canoes for teams or single person kayaks for solo racers. You must bring your own mountain bike, and the trails are a combination of paved, dirt roads, and single track. The foot navigation section will have you running both on the trail and into the woods!

The morning of the race we will also offer a pre-race mini adventure race training session, for those new to the sport. So don’t be shy, come on out and try something new! If you’ve raced with us before, come on back — no two adventure race courses are the same!!

Grab some friends and come on out for a great, fun challenge!
