Course Description:

The 7 hour race will have some urban trekking and biking but with plenty of not-too-deep wilderness near Hastings. No Amazing Race challenges in this one. Transition areas and major sections will be done in order (to track teams for safety and allow volunteers to work multiple areas) so you’ll know where you stand against the other teams. All transition areas will be mandatory. If you are running behind, you should be able to get to all of these TAs without problem. Orienteering checkpoints will be mostly optional and in any order (called score-o/rogaine).
Trekking/Orienteering: 8-12 miles, broken up. Great terrain. Distances between CPs will vary from 150 to 1200 meters. A combination of very definable checkpoints and more subtle intermediate placements to test your ability to process many types of information (contour shape, elevation, vegetation types, man-made features, distance, direction, water features, etc.).
Biking: 25-35 miles. Some really fun singletrack along with gravel and paved roads. More paved roads than our last few summer races, but a nice mix to give you a rest from the gravel when you need it. Not a lot of hills on the bike leg. Road bikes not allowed.
Paddling: 2-3 miles. We will provide the kayaks and canoes free of charge or you can bring your own. Short but sweet.

12 Hours: Transition areas and major sections will be done in order (to track teams for safety and allow volunteers to work multiple areas). All transition areas will be mandatory. If you are running behind, you should be able to get to all of these TAs without problem. Orienteering checkpoints will be mostly optional and in any order (score-o/rogaine).
Orienteering/Trekking: 12-18 miles. Great terrain. Distances between CPs will vary from 250 meters to over a mile. A combination of very definable checkpoints and more subtle intermediate/advanced placements to test your ability to process many types of information (contour shape, elevation, vegetation types, man-made features, distance, direction, water features, etc.).
Biking: 35-50 miles. Some really fun singletrack along with gravel and paved roads. Not a lot of hills on the bike leg. Road bikes not allowed.
Paddling: 6-7 miles. Pretty river paddling. We will provide the kayaks and canoes free of charge or you can bring your own.

Aid Stations:

Spectators:

We would encourage you to invite friends and family to watch the race. We will offer race maps to spectators (first come basis) so they can check out some of the fun challenges. Keep in mind that spectating an adventure race is an adventure in itself as they must always be moving ahead of racers to see a lot of the action.

Other:

Our charity partner for the race is Wexford-Osceola Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide.
