10-Hour Race

The 10-hour adventure race is perfect for sport or family teams looking to have some fun discovering the outdoors with adventure racing. Easy to read and simple navigation will take you to some hidden spots around Blue Ridge. Distances are always based on your team's abilities and speed in adventure racing; however, you can expect between 20–30 miles of mountain biking, 5–8 miles of trekking with 4–8 miles of canoeing.

Check-in starts downtown at 6:30am on Saturday with instructions and a pre-plotted map followed by a pre-race meeting at 8:15am. The race starts at 9:00am.

All teammates must be present to check-in and receive instructions. The later you are the shorter the time to prepare. Your first discipline to start the race will be revealed during check-in. A staging area will be set-up at check-in for bikes and paddling gear. For the 10-hour race, we will be transporting these items if required. See "Gear" section below for specifics on gear.

Water and snacks will be provided at every TA; however, this is not guaranteed so bring water purification tablets.

Race includes: Bike gloves, food and drink during the race, awards for each division, and dinner at the end of the race.
