Great Kaw Adventure RaceSprint Adventure Race
CPA Park Eudora KS
The Great Kaw Adventure Race is an orienteering based, cognitive, and physical challenge event. Challenges could be trivia about Eudora's German and Indian heritage, complex equations, gunny sack races, or a simple puzzle. Participants will be required to navigate to waypoints and challenges to retrieve important artifacts. To acquire these artifacts, an action will have to be performed. Participants will be limited to right of way and public properties unless otherwise stated. If we catch you running through lawns (and our residents will) you will be penalized.

Each two person team will be issued a map with the waypoints marked. It is up to the team to decide what is the best way to complete the course. No cue sheets will be issued. 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. If you're running you should be able to touch, you will both be in the same boat, and if your cycling you should be able to draft. This is a team event so choose your exit buddy well. All finishers will receive an award for finishing (more to come soon!)

For 2017 the GKAR will have two classes.

The 30 miler will require participants to run, paddle 11.4 miles, and cycle gravel roads back to the finish line. Depending on strategy, participants could travel between 24 to 30 miles. This class will require a running, river travel, and cycling unless conditions prevent are unsafe. All finishers will receive an award, with top prizes going to first, second, and third place teams.

The 5 miler will require participants to run or walk through and around Eudora to find waypoints. Depending on strategy, participants could travel between 4 to 8 miles. All finishers will receive an award. This course will focus heavily on orienteering and exploring the community.

The StockvilleOther
Tuscarora State Forest PA
The best part of adventuring is the stories.

That time you were packrafting down a remote river and spotted a deer chasing a Canadian lynx up the bank…That sunrise over the Catskills, when the red and yellow leaves sparkled with frost…Those trail angels you encountered, when everyone on the team had run out of food, and you were still miles from the TA…That night you and your teammates came together to overcome insurmountable odds and made it to the finish line, with seconds to spare…

This race is for the stories.

The Stockville is a two-day foot and navigation event, inspired by the mountain marathons of Europe and the UK. Each morning, racers will receive maps of a linear, point-to-point course that will take them through the wilds of Central Pennsylvania. The final checkpoint on Day 1 – and the start location for Day 2 – will be at midcamp, a community campout where we’ll come together over roasted marshmallows to bask in the wonder of our collective adventures.

For Stockville veterans, the second-running of the race will bring more route choice and opportunities to extend or shorten course distances each day.

Race The Ridge: The RampageAdventure Race
The Blue Ridge School St. George VA
The Blue Ridge Rampage is a 15 hour adventure race and is the premier race on race day. It will take teams all over the Blue Ridge school property, as well as outside of the school for over half of the race. With 50-60% of the race on private property, teams will be treated to some special sections of land very few people have had access to. This is our backyard, and training ground. We spend alot of time playing in these mountains and can’t wait to show it off! With the days getting shorter in early November, teams will be racing in the dark at both ends of the race for several hours. Due to the time of year (weather) location of the school, and logistics, there is no planned paddle leg at this time. If that changes once the final course is set we will notify all registered teams.

Teams can expect significant elevation gain and loss, sustained climbs on the bike, technical off-trail travel and mountain terrain, biking on miles of purpose-build MTB trails, several foot orienteering courses, beautiful Virginia back-country gravel road riding, picture postcard scenery, overlooks/vistas and maybe even a winery or two!

The Rampage will be hard. If you are addicted to adventure racing, love pushing yourself and are ready for a challenge, this is the race for you. Bring your climbing legs and your compass—you are going to need it!

In partnership with the Blue Ridge School in St George Virginia, and benefitting their outdoor recreation program. Located in the shadow of the Shenandoah National Park and 30 minutes from Charlottesville, the Blue Ridge School is a playground for outdoor recreation. With the mountains as a backdrop—along with picture post card Virginia country scenery, gravel roads, scenic vistas, wineries, breweries and the peak of the famous Shenandoah fall foliage season—this race is perfect for the lover of the outdoors. Race on Saturday, bring your family and enjoy the rest of the weekend taking in the sights!

Crooked CompassOther
Buchanan State Forest Cumberland, MD/Bedford, PA PA
The Crooked Compass Adventure Trek is part-adventure racing, part-rogaining, and part-walk in the woods! Solos and teams of 2-4 will travel by foot, on-trail and off, using pre-plotted water resistant maps and compass as they locate as many checkpoints as possible within the time allotted.

This year’s course offers a challenging but beautiful journey, complete with cliffs, caves, creeks, ridgeline views, and a touch of fascinating local history too. With sweeping views and rugged terrain, the Crooked Compass serves as great training for bigger events, whether you are taking on a 24 hour adventure race, the four day Untamed New England expedition race, or our very own two day Stockville in the fall. And if you’re new to adventure racing, this is a great introductory event that will challenge and give you a taste for what the sport is.

The Savage Adventure RaceSprint Adventure Race
Sand Island Allentown PA
The Savage 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!

What: Teams venture into the National Forest and navigate at night with a map and a compass to locate as many points as possible in a 6-8 hour period.
Why: Partly a test of skill with a map and compass (only basic skills required), but more so a test of mental discipline and physical determination. Those with cool heads and gas in their tank after a long day will prevail.

Challenge 4: The Final Run
What: 10+ mile run with interspersed challenges.
Why: Competitors must overcome exhaustion and rally for the final event.





Bonus Event: The Battle Drill
What: At an undisclosed time and location Teams will compete in a specially designed fitness test, the details of which will be revealed to competitors prior to the date of the event.
Why: This event tests Competitors’ ability to train for and perform a known physical challenge. It provides some balance to the intentional ambiguity of the other events.

Shenandoah ToughExpedition Adventure Race
Shrine Mont Conference and Retreat Center Orkney Springs VA
We brought you a world-class event with the Adventure Racing World Championship last August in Wyoming. Now let us show you around our home state! For the past 7 years we have been producing our flagship 24-hour adventure race--the Shenandoah Epic--in the Shenandoah Valley. Our dream has always been to expand this race to a multi-day expedition race to take advantage of all the terrain and outdoor amazingness this region offers. So was born the Shenandoah Tough, a 3.5 day expedition race that covers 250 miles and has teams of 2, 3 or 4 navigating their way across the challenging and beautiful terrain of the Northern Shenandoah via foot, mountain bike, and boat. As a nice bonus, it's also the last ARWS qualifier before the 2018 Adventure Racing World Championship.

Tahoe Big Blue Adventure RaceAdventure Race

USARA National Championship Qualifier
Defined by both the incredible beauty of Lake Tahoe and the towering peaks of the High Sierra, North Lake Tahoe is one of the world’s most famous sporting playgrounds. The “North Shore” has an almost endless variety of spectacular mountain biking trails, adventurous hikes and, of course, waterborne activities on the “Big Blue” – Lake Tahoe – one of the largest, deepest and purest alpine lakes on earth.

The Tahoe Big Blue Adventure Race is a celebration of the natural environment of the North Shore, and the perfect climate of “Indian Summer.” September is a favorite month of Tahoe locals… and no wonder: daytime temperatures are in the 80’s with the evenings cooling into the 60’s, the skies are deep blue with only an occasional afternoon thunderstorm rolling through (to help keep the dust down on the trails!). This is a perfect time for a visit to the Big Blue.

The Tahoe Big Blue Adventure Race is a multi-sport event in which teams and individuals participate and compete in kayaking or stand up paddling, mountain biking, trail running, and navigation. Designed such that participating teams will complete in an 8 hour maximum time format. Teams travel on land and lake to gather as many checkpoints as possible and finish within the 8 hour time limit.

However, don’t take the Tahoe Big Blue lightly as the event starts out at 6200’ and heads up to 9000’ and will include challenging and steep terrain. No matter how long your adventure takes we promise to greet you with a smile as you cross the finish line and provide you with the great tastes of the Big Blue BBQ.

The Edge Adventure RaceSprint Adventure Race
Green Lane Park (tentative as of 3/4/18) Green Lane PA
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!
