THE CAULDRON

The 2019 CAULDRON Adventure Race returns to the Suwannee Ranch 505  in Jasper, Florida on Saturday Morning January 19th, 2019 for the 36 Hour Race and Sunday, January 20th for the 8 Hour Race. What a great way to start the year with a challenging race in the warmer Florida weather and USARA National Qualifier with the change to get your team huge early points for the series.

The Cauldron returns will be heading West this year with a new course arrangement and fantastic new locations like Twin Rivers State Park! This year’s Cauldron has been designed to showcase the beauty and epic wilderness along the banks of the Suwannee River.  With a strong focus on remoteness, self-sufficiency, and strategic decision making, the Cauldron aims to bring the flavor of an expedition into a weekend race.

The Cauldron will send racers through numerous distinct biological communities on foot, bike, and canoe. Significant sections of the race are on rarely used remote parcels yet to be seen in a public event. Racers can expect to traverse numerous limestone outcroppings, floodplain forest, floodplain swamp, river bluffs and alluvial streams. Racers will be visiting natural springs and sinks and may see Kingfisher, Rough-winged Swallow, jumping sturgeon and Doughterty Plain Cave Crayfish.

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.
