2020 Blue Ridge Adventure Race

The 23nd Annual Blue Ridge Adventure Race Weekend May 15th-16th 2020 will start with the 24 Hour Race in downtown Blue Ridge Georgia, Friday Night at 5:00pm on May 15th and finishing on Saturday at 5:00pm. A bus ride to Ellijay this year that has never been used before in any Blue Ridge race and should be a great time for MTB lovers.

 

The 8 Hour race will start Saturday morning at 9:00am and finishing the same time as the 24 Hour teams at 5:00pm. A bus ride to a secret location this year that has never been used before in any Blue Ridge race and should be a great time for MTB lovers. Great paddling sections this year in both races and some unique route chooses to be made.  Don't forget that the 8 Hour race sells out every year. 

 

Both races will again end at the Grumpy Old Men Brewery for food, live music, awards and of course free beer.
