Warrior has packed everything you want in a race with the most beautiful wilderness backdrop in the US. Teams will be visiting the host city of Breckenridge, the most athlete-friendly town in Colorado, with hotels, shops, restaurants, breweries, and, of course, trails everywhere. Teams will be bused to Twin Lakes for the start of the race and work their way back to Breckenridge via mountain bike, trekking, climbing, paddling, and maybe something crazy that has never been in an expedition race before. The lowest elevation teams will have is 9,600ft and with a total of 30,000ft of elevation gain during the race.

This is an 75-hour, non-stop race from Twin Lakes, CO to Breckenridge, CO on your own power. Teams will be dropped off at a secret location in Twin Lakes where they will race on foot, mountain bike, canoe and whatever we throw in to get back to the finish. There are up to 6 transition areas and 50 checkpoints to retrieve during the journey. Official finishers are only required to visit all the transition areas from the start to the finish line. All checkpoints are optional; however, teams are ranked by how many checkpoints they retrieve and the time they finished. All courses are subject to change without notice due the permissions from government agencies.
This year's race contains no whitewater or ropes sections.
Race Tips from the Race Director
Navigation will be very straightforward with some tricks thrown in however, get familiar with using a TOPO map. There will be no plotting UTM coordinates during this year's race; however, there is an O-Relay during the race so make sure at least two team members can navigate alone. All information forms and maps are waterproof. Train mostly on climbing uphill on foot and bike. Be prepared for any type of weather; August in Colorado at high elevations could be anything from cold rain in the low 40s at night to highs in the 80s during the day. If you have a chance to visit Colorado before the race, then do it.
