No markings will be placed in town. The course will be open to traffic and citizens. Participants will be required to be within two seconds of each other regardless of transit.

Please plan on staying for the fun after the race – and invite friends, the post-race celebration is open to the public!

The Great Kaw Adventure Race is produced by people who love their community’s connection to the Kaw River and its relationship to the history of Eudora. The race team uses the event to support the Friends of the Kaw through exploration of the Eudora area and introduce guests to the Eudora community.

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!!

Welcome in spring with an adventure race at Mint Springs park in Crozet, VA. Hunt for over 30 checkpoints spread throughout the park using a compass and map. The course will have a mix of checkpoints, some good for kids and first time racers, some maliciously placed. Every racer will be given a course map on race day with the checkpoints pre-marked. Find as many checkpoints as you can in 6 hours. This is a rogaine style (all on foot race against the clock) adventure race. No bikes or paddling required. Stay on the trails...or not. Up to you. Race as a team or solo. Any racer under 15 must race on a team with an adult.

Because many children cannot wander the woods for 6 hours, there will be a 3 hour kids race. Any team with at least one member 14 and under is automatically eligible for the kids race. Just make it back to base camp by 1200 to be scored in the kids bracket. Racers 10 and under are good candidates for the 3 hour race.

No markings will be placed in town. The course will be open to traffic and citizens. Participants will be required to be within two seconds of each other regardless of transit.

The race team uses the event to support the Friends of the Kaw through exploration of the Eudora area and introduce guests to the Eudora community.

The Edge Adventure RaceSprint Adventure Race
Marsh Creek State Park Downingtown PA
Come on out and enjoy the fall weather!

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 teamwork 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 teamwork. 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!
